happy friday!

Happy Friday!

Today was full of good surprises. I responded too late to a craig's list bike over a week ago. She told me that if something fell through with the person buying it, she'd let me know. Knowing that wouldn't happen, I kept looking other places.

I gave up after a while.

But today I checked my email and the first buyer never showed! So today I got my new bike. I'm SO happy to have something to commute with. I hate commuting with my nice road bike. I still have on the seat that I biked cross-country with, and that seat is SO hard. And narrow. How in the hell I biked for so long and for so many hours on that thing is beyond me. Oh wait, there were dozens of saddle sores (sorry) and my butt was always sore at the beginning.

Here's my new commuter:

I love it!

My other surprise is that I got invited to a BBQ by someone I recently met! Eric and I are going to bring some ground venison to make burgers and the pita I baked last night (yep, another batch!). It's a little more like flatbread. If I rolled it out a little thinner, I think that would make it more pita-ish. The bread makes the best lunch sandwich bread! Eric has requested I start making it on a regular basis.

The sandwich I'm making for us tomorrow is a mock mopac sandwich. (The mopac sandwich is an Austin Whole Foods sandwich that comes on flatbread and is loaded with chicken, pepperoni, provolone, chipotle mayo, and guacamole. It's pressed, too. We love it.) I have everything except the guac. I know, I know. But it's still SO GOOD. I bought a half smoked chicken at WF a couple days ago and that's the chicken I'm using in the sandwiches.

I'm rambling. Have a good weekend! Don't be fooled today!
