With the score currently 23 to 7, the pumpkin people are easily wiping the floor clean to the non-pumpkin people. I wouldn’t have expected such a mighty showing by the beta-carotene rich crowd, but I am pleased to announce this trouncing since pumpkin is delish.
Alas, I did see a handful of votes for the triple-P and/or non-triple-P, where some folks voted themselves as pumpkin PIE people and/or non-pumpkin PIE people. The question isn’t so much whether you like it’s pie incarnation as the entire gourd-like squash of pumpkin in general. I took the liberty of extrapolating your answer by simply removing the “pie” part of your vote.
I have a busy week ahead of me consisting of training and general attempts at greatness, so I decided that a hearty breakfast of Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl is exactly what the doctor ordered. I opted for the raisins, tons of ground clove, vanilla yogurt, and a small portion of flaxseed meal for extra heartiness.
Wheaties is the breakfast of champions, I’m told. Pumpkin oatmeal is the breakfast of Ted King.
A quick weekend recap: I spent Saturday night at a really nice event for the Marin County Bicycle Coalition. Any sort of advocacy that helps put bikes SAFELY on the road is a worthy cause in my mind! Especially here in CA where there are seemingly more cars on the road than there are grains of sand on the beach. Sheesh, beep beep, eh? So a big thanks to them for an enjoyable Saturday night promoting bikes.
Then Sunday I slayed nearly four awesome hours in, on, and around Mt. Tam. Like I said yesterday, if you have Tam in your backyard – or within a few miles anyway – you’re spoiled. That place is a cyclist’s playground! Then an afternoon in San Fran and home by midnight. Good stuff. Great stuff.
