Cooks in the Kitchen

Last night, Peter and I decided to put our combined culinary skills together to create stuffed pasta shells. Luckily, we work pretty well together in the kitchen. These big ol' shells were stuffed full of spinach, ricotta, cottage cheese, Parmesan, and mozzarella. We covered them with tomato sauce and chicken sausage and topped the whole deal with more mozzarella on top! They turned out great! The recipe made 10 servings but somehow Peter has already managed to eat about 7 of those servings. :-\
The ingredients:

Finished product:

We also made a quick day trip up to Dallas on Friday. We visited Michelle and Betty at Living Well for some acupuncture and nutritional advice, respectively. They were awesome as always. Check them out at if you haven't already. From there we went to Weinburgers in Grapevine for amazing Reuben sandwiches and then to drop off bikes for Valley of the Sun. Brad at Metro VW, being awesome as always, sent us some sweet track jackets, long sleeve shirts, and sweat-wicking tees. Thanks Brad! Selle Italia also sent us some nice saddles with big cutouts which will be great! I'm looking forward to using it this season for sure. Thanks Nathan, too, for organizing all of this and making sure each and every one of us is good to go for the race.

I'll be flying out Thursday to meet the team in Pheonix, Arizona for Valley of the Sun. I'm really, really, really looking forward to it. We'll do really well there.
