Addiction LXXX

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

You can find Italian Panettone - so at least Centaur-level - at some of your fancier grocery stores here. It's kinda like challah or brioche with candied fruits, but better than that sounds. The best is still a bit moist, or at least not dry.

The one holiday baked good for which I pine is mincemeat pie. Back when I was a kid, the fruit processing company Dad worked for made real mincemeat, with actual minced meat in it, but nowadays all you can find is what USED TO be called "mock mincemeat". It's very much in the fruitcake/plum pudding flavor range, what with the rum and/or brandy that goes in it, plus all the raisins and such. We used to have them at Thanksgiving and Christmas at the least, and other times, too, since pie filling was damn near free from the company commissary.

It wasn't part of Mrs. GeneJockey's upbringing, though, so she doesn't like it much, and thus it wasn't part of The Boys' upbringing either. So that mincemeat pie I saw in the store on Christmas Eve did not go home with me.

Is this a new space monkey statue, or did they move the one from the park in Riga?

Nothing better than Bermuda shorts, flipflops, and a coaster brake on a sunny day !!!

​​​​​​I almost grabbed a mincemeat pie the other day. It was at Safeway, and only $5, so probably the Claris of mincemeat pies.

I've never had high zoot panettone. I wonder if any of the fancy Italian ristorantes around here do 'em.

There's a Record level Italian joint not too far away, dunno if we have any Super Record places in town.

Had a good ride with 3 friends. It was cold and windy, hilly, and fun.

I do not like traditional flip-flops. For some reason they irritate the webbing between toes 1 and 2.

I'm a big fan. Many people think it's still made with meat and struggle with the thought of it. On occasion I will get a half pie for Thanksgiving, a half because I know I'll be the only one eating it.

I was grossed out by mincemeat and fruitcake when I was very young and never tried either as an adult. I was a picky eater until I starved for most of a year when I was 18 or 19. After that most food tastes good to me. Except grapefruit.

No outdoor riding for me today. I didn't put enough sunscreen on during my short tour. I dislike sunburn.

Fruit cake is ok. occasionally. fruit mince pies are the de rigeur Christmas treat. It and lemon meringue pie are the only non-savoury pies that don't seem weird. When you all talk about pie I automatically think of meat pies, not fruit pies.

Ive seen them made with meat or suet or something. Not my favorite treat by a long shot, but my father, being Eurotrash, liked it and we had it occasionally, store bought.

Addiction! Now with food and foot wear!
I couldnt even read most of that for fear I would gain weight!

I may have figure out my Wahoo problem. Looks like the app is bad. You have to allow it to run in background or it will not function. Soon as I changed that permission, bam functionality!! I'll test it in a little while.
I was going to tell Wahoo about it. I went to thier website to leave them a message. Threres a bunch of complaints about it already. I guess this update went out on the 22nd and it screwed le pooch.
I did speak with the guy I got it from and he has even offered to come over and help me with it. I get the impression he's an honest guy. Refreshing.

I once rolled the front end of a similar piece of footwear,, under my foot which led to the most incredible set of stubbed toes you ever saw.. broken toe nails, exposed nail beds, torn skin, blood. Gruesome. Took months to grow out new toe nails.

Called the old job to order parts for my car and going there tomorrow to pick them up. Talking to parts guy and he told me everyone else in parts is out with covid. I called one of the mechanics and he said most of the other mechanics are also out with the 'vid. And two of the advisors. And I'm going there tomorrow.

I use it to make Pad Thai or with pesto like youre doing.

Sometimes puttanesca- but we typically prefer zucchini spirals for that.
