Well still here at work. Would like a beer or some pillow time, oh well. I will survive.
plans are set for sept 6th for a group of folks I ride with.
You hear that word often on the Taco Ride, which takes place every Thursday night on the Wabash Trace Nature Trail.
What sane person would pedal a bicycle for 10 miles to a steakhouse in a tiny southwest Iowa town, just to eat some cheap tacos and drink some cheap margaritas?
Then get on his bike again, in a tired and slightly euphoric state, and pedal another 10 miles back to the car, all, hopefully, before dark?
Hundreds of people. Sometimes a thousand or more.
Severe issues here at work. prob not too many posts for a bit. Very much hoping I can keep my job.
Journey Faithfully 1983
We have wanted one of these for a while. Jake mentioned he got an ice cream maker and had made some good stuff. We opted for the kitchenaid one. It cost a bit more than other makers, but figured it was worth it. Picked it up yesterday but had to freeze the bowl for 15 hours. But it is best to chill your mix for 6 hours or so anyway.
I decided to use white flesh peaches for my first attempt at a sorbet. Unfortunately they were not too packed with flavor so I added lemon juice, lime juice, Knotts berry farm boysenberry syrup, and a bit of tequila to add to the flavor. Fired it up over lunch, was cool (he he cool). Made a bit of a mess, but it tasted awesome. It is sitting in the freezer right now firming up for a cool treat this evening.
Theresa’s first thought was to make doggie ice cream which she can make little doggie ice cream sammiches with her home made dog treats. Man those dogs are spoiled. Gonna make up a batch of basic vanilla tonight for tomorrow. And yes Katy you can borrow it sometime, but we gonna mess with it a for a week or so.
As with Jake, Alton Brown was the inspiration for us.

mmmmm….. beer ice cream Duff & D’oh-Nuts
You can imagine Homer Simpson falling asleep at night and dreaming of ice cream with two of his favorite flavors — beer and doughnuts.
Vermont’s famous ice-cream maker, Ben & Jerry’s, will bring that new concoction to Vermont’s newly famous town, Springfield, for the premiere of “The Simpsons” movie this weekend. The town won a recent contest among communities sharing a name with the fictitious home base of “The Simpsons,” and will host a daylong celebration and several premiere showings of the new film on Saturday.
Ben & Jerry’s Homer homage is called “Duff & D’oh-Nuts,” and according to a news release from the ice-cream maker is an “extremely limited, one-time and one-day-only flavor” that’s “a combination of chocolate and cream stout ice creams with glazed chocolate donuts.” Duff is the brand of beer featured in “The Simpsons” television series, and doughnuts are Homer’s culinary raison d’etre.
In another nod to Homer, Ben & Jerry’s will for one day rename its Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor “Chocolate Chip Cookie D’oh!” in reference to Homer’s famous exclamation.
