Tomorrow morning we’re leaving on a 20 day bicycle trip with Paul and Bekah. Jay’s been planning this for a long time…and I’ve been dreading the hills for a long time. 🙂 We’re leaving from our place and are heading southward (which should be easier since it’s down-hill, right?) to Barcelona. I’m anticipating this trip to be one of the more challenging adventures we’ve set out on…(probably the hardest part will be not constantly whining about the hills!)…but also just plain rad. I can’t wait to see all that amazing countryside and have time far away from home/work. And have time to read books…and watch Lost (yes, we’re all addicted and are bringing an ipad crammed full of episodes).
Jay has a blog going for the trip:
Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Back in June we were asked to prepare a special anniversary meal for 50 people here at the Château. It was great fun because I got to use some of the recipes I learned at cooking school, I had a somewhat larger budget than normal, had a fabulous group of kitchen help, and had my brand new KitchenAid! (Thanks, Aunt Tami!!!)
