Le Tour

Damn, I am the worst employee ever.

I cannot help but watch Le Tour for the first 2+ hours of the work day. Sure, I am cataloging at the same time, but not as productive as I could/should be. Go Alberto Contador!

Let me tell you about the foods I made last night.

Roasted Beets. These would be the beets that I purchased a week ago at the Farmer's market. I haven't decided what I will do with them yet, but now they are cooked I can use them (probably in a salad).

I steamed some chinese broccoli and then shocked it in some ice water. This will be for lunch.

Lentil/rice thing. I made some basmati rice. I also started some green lentils (boiled them) and while they were cooking, I sauteed onion, garlic, carrot, and celery. I added some curry powder, salt and pepper, and mustard. Added the green lentils, and some uncooked brown lentils and simmered it in some veggie stock I had. After it cooked and reduced, I added it to the cooled rice with some Thai Basil. I will eat it as a cold salad. It is an odd mismatch of things, but delicious.

Lance Armstrong just made a break! So Exciting. Must Work


  1. Beets. Make soup. Google some Polish,Russian, or some Slavic soups. Google the term, Wigilia. Don't know if your veggi/vegan or not, but you can use vegi stock instead of meat and potatoes.

  2. Soup is a good idea, but I roasted the beets, and I am going to make a salad out of them.
