Important Safety Tip...

If you're going on a vacation and don't want to feel like you've eaten a horse and put on the corresponding amount of weight, don't go to a hotel/restaurant run by a teaching culinary institute!

Just got back from 5 days at the "Inn at Essex" in VT, run by the New England Culinary Institute. Ughhh. Didn't take bikes since my wife's not riding yet and the baby's not old/big enough to ride in a trailer. Did manage to get in a run, but the food won.

I'm planning on 35 or 40 miles in the morning to try and start undoing some of the damage from the weekend; that might take care of one of the desserts....

I have a worse foe. I went to the in-law's house. Never fails, a weekend at the in-laws and I gain 5 lbs. I had finally got solidly back under 200, now it's blown, and it's raining. I do so love to eat crabs though!

... Or you can do what I did and take your "food intake" for the holiday weekend in the form of beer From what I can see, if you don't combine it with too much food, it's not fattening


now completely OT and just out of curiosity: sunninho, who's that on your avatar?

There is the beer thing...calories can add up quick but there's no fat involved, at least not until you store those calories because you took a nap instead of a ride!

Pistachio of course! But then again, I've been trying to lose weight. I've been eyeballing something special and have to lose weight.
