Bouncing Off Clouds

My first ride or two of each year tend to be pretty slow and easy; far more on the side of cautious than carefree, especially if I am toting one of the kids.
Curves are strictly steered from pushing the handle bar and outside, inside, outside around the bends.
I've been out a couple times now and this weekend I took some back roads with lovely twisties. It was awesome.

I wasn't doing wheelies but it still felt pretty good and the road was thankfully free of homicidal, road-raging Californians.

Good times

melanzane alla parmigiana

I have constructed an eggplant parmesan to bring to a potluck dinner tonight.
Several of my galpals are getting together for an Italian evening.
One is bringing spaghetti with clam sauce, oh yum.
I don't make eggplant parmesan very often. It's too much work and um, it's not exactly light and healthy fare.
But DAAAAAAAANG it's good.
Here are the leftovers which will be consumed before the evening is out.
Here is my great creation, headed into the oven,

and here is the ensuing carnage.

I'm off to tidy up now before Mr. Logo comes home and that vein on his forehead starts twitching.

Oh, and I'm going to Ocean Shores this weekend, hope you all have a great Easter and whatnot. I'll be hanging at the beach till next Friday.

some things are beyond explanation

I do NOT like country music,
but this?

This I love.
