New Food Ideas

I don’t do well with calorie counting.  I found low-carb to be weird, when having to put some miles on the bike.  Giving up beer hurts.

I needed something different.  I cooked dinner tonight. I used what we already had in the house:

  • 2 cups white rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup beer (Dale’s Pale Ale, if it matters)
  • 1 can black-eyed peas
  • 1 can mushrooms
  • 1 bag frozen spinach
  • Hot sauce
  • Garlic (copious amounts)
  • Salt

I had planned on something fancier, but I didn’t want another grocery trip.  This is pretty good, and mostly healthy.  The beer I drank… not so much.

There are plenty of leftovers for later.

My longer term plans are to eat meat-lite.  Diane isn’t totally on board with this.  I guess I’ll be doing a lot more cooking.

I rode the new bike to work today.  I’m going to again tomorrow.
