Brussel Sprouts and Grip Tape
Running errands all day trying to get some things done I've been procrastinating over for a long time .. in fact, my week has been sort of a house cleaning week. Things tend to pile up and before you know it the list becomes insurmountable. Well, it feels like that anyway. So after a busy day I'm looking for something to eat, the doritos on top of the fridge don't look so good, had a banana earlier, cookies!! (bad idea) so I decide on trying to cook some brussel sprouts. Now, I've had brussel sprouts cooked by someone I enjoy cooking with, but the problem is I should have paid better attention. I came up with a pretty good plan and I was on my way. I had everything I needed! Olive oil, lemons, sea salt, pepper. Even though they got a little crispy, they were pretty good.
With the Vasaloppet Relay race tomorrow morning, and daytime temps forecast to be around 40f, anyone planning to ski the race classic is going have a tough time picking the right ski wax. I'd tried Grip Tape in the past, and have friends that swear by it, I had bad luck with it. Of course, I'm thinking I just might have used to much ... maybe. So we have a few people on the two skoac teams going classic, and tonight we spent some time getting Chris's ski's ready with the grip tape for tomorrows race. I'll be curious to see what people use for kick wax when the temp gets so warm. I have a tough time with it.
