2. We've been doing a "clean out the pantry" meal week here in an attempt to spend as little money as possible for the rest of the month (that new crank isn't going to buy itself). Whenever we do this, our meals get a little strange, but last night wins. Cauliflower mash (that I put too much milk in so it was nice and watery and weird), brussels sprouts and grilled cheese with turkey bacon. Yes, I am occasionally eating meat again and I REFUSE TO BE ASHAMED. And yes, our dinner spread did make for a very noisy evening in the intestinal region. Tonight I think that delicata squash that I bought over the weekend is going on a pizza and then we've got a few days of cleaning out the whole-wheat pasta stash.

Speaking of my enormous crank, the universe did me a solid (I hate it when people say that) and I've got one on order that I hope gets here by this weekend so I can check that off my incredibly-needy-bike list. I've also decided that I'm going to spend the money (I'm cringing here) to actually do one of those computer-electrode-video-bike-fits that I've read about, now that I've had a few months to start getting used to my sick fast. I've found a few shops in and around DC that do this but I'd love recommendations from local folks about any good experiences you've had with fit anywhere. I've been really reluctant to do this because I'm a frugal miser that likes to sit at home counting my dollar bills over and over, but based on my injury-ridden past and the few niggles that I have going on right now that I just can't shake, I think it's absolutely worth it to get a real fit done. Sigh.
Happy Thursday, everyone!
