Favorite After-Ride Pig out food.

So, the riding is done for the day. Needless to say, you're starving. No June Cleaver to cook you dinner. ( This is one of the few places where I'll use the "June Cleaver" reference) So, what's you favorite stuff to pig out on?

Russers Baloney. Potato chips. Beer. Ummmmm. Life is good, sometimes. Or,, Genoa Salami. Ymmmm,.. No? How about some really good Pastrami? Pizza? Meatballs from a good italian place I know?

A pepperoni, sausage, and onion pizza from Bronx Pizza on Washington Street. These guys are pizza Nazis -- don't try to order that pineapple, asparagus or thai chicken crap with them. Order a traditional pizza like you'd get in the Bronx, or get the hell out of there.

Mmmmmmm! It's sooooooo good!

Pasta!!! Lots of it. My current post-ride favorite is linguini with clams in a red sauce. And a nice glass of chianti to wash it down with.

My preferred post-ride meal is dependant on the length of th ride. Tonite I did a quick 12 miles just as it was getting dark. A couple of grilled cheeese sandwiches seems just right. A century? Then something pasta based...and voluminous!!!

It's a good thing DG and I don't ride together...we'd be 300 pounds by the end of summer!

Pasta.

Homemade sauce, homemade meatballs, and sometimes homemade spaghetti.

But, hey, I'm married to a FBI (Full Blooded Italian).

Left Southampton (PA) yesterday afternoon, took Rt 232 out to New Hope, then, crossed into Jersey, rode up to Frenchtown and back - total distance around 60 miles. There are some long gradual hills in the Southampton <--> New Hope stretch, but, the balance of the ride is pretty flat.

Got back around 9:00 (about five hours later). Grabbed a Diet Mountain Dew and a bag of miniature carrots. I'm bragging to myself about how healthy those carrots were for me when the ice cream bug struck - I sat down with a big bowl of ice cream (stacked like a mountain in the bowl) to watch a little TV. After consuming the ice cream, I figured I'd just stretch out on the sofa under a blanket until the chill from the ice cream wore off.

That was around 10:30 PM. Missed the eleven o'clock shoot 'em up - but, I'm all rested and fresh now (4:30 AM, LOL).

Ice cream is my down fall. DQ Blizzards rank right up there - I like mine with vanilla and malt powder - Mmmmmm. Nothing wrong with a Rita's Misto, either.

Any beer with any pizza (no fruit on the pizza, please) just make certain that the beer is darn near frozen.

We like to go to a decent restaurant. Often in our bike duds....
Anyway, yesterday was seafood, last week was Italian. Near the end of one
of Maine's best rides (Lighthouse Loop) is Dimitry's, a greek/mediteranean
place, I really like that. I only like a couple types of strong coffee, one is Dmitry's Greek coffee. The other is Cuban coffee in Miami; but only in a good restaurant after some wonderful Cuban food.

Sushi makes a really good postride treat, but you better find a place that offers platters for groups. After a ride, we get a platter that says it's for 4-6 people.
Great snack
