Biking season wrap up

Another super nice weekend! There are those times when life is just really good, you know?  This is one of those times  😀

I did, however, have to pay for John’s football meal from week 11.  He decided on Indian food, so we headed down on Saturday to Saratoga to hit up Little India:

I like this place, so I wasn’t complaining all that much!

The happy winner:

We split an order of Pashwari naan, which had coconut, raisins and ground nuts inside.

Here is the inside.  So good!

My entree was paneer makhni, which is cheese cubes (paneer) in a sort of tomato sauce, but it isn’t really a tomato sauce like Italian tomato sauce.  I know that doesn’t make sense if you haven’t eaten Indian food, but it is sooooo good.

John chose a vegetable korma.  Loads of different veggies with potato and paneer in a korma sauce, which is like a ground nut sauce.

We also had a bowl of basmati rice to share.  This meal was delicious!  I wish there were Indian places closer to us, but maybe that is a good thing.

I love how they serve candied fennel seeds to aid digestion:

They are kind of like crunchy Good N Plenties!

Sunday was the day for biking and working outside. It was in the upper 50s and likely the last ride of the season! (boooo…..).  I was happy to get out.  I got the garden ready for winter:

I leave some stuff up for winter interest.

Then it was biking time!

We headed to South Glens Falls for the holiday parade:

This is a really long parade.  Bagpipers:

Dancers:

 

Our next car:

The kazoo band:

Various marching bands:

We didn’t stay for the whole parade because it is really long.  We then headed over to Chocolate Mill for a coffee and a snack!

This was a vanilla malt cookie and a walnut sandy (shortbread).

We headed out home on the bike path.  A little wistful thinking the season is coming to an end.

This is how many miles I put on the bike since we got them outside this spring:

😯 😯   2245 miles!! That is a lot of riding.  Happy riding, other than the million flat tires we had this year.  2011 season was the year of the flat tire.  I need to try to figure out how many flats we had. We are in the double digits.

Anyway, good season!

Temps are now in the 40s, so that probably was the last ride.

Be Sociable, Share!

    Love Indian food, but now I make my own, never sure what is in there.

    You could ride out to visit me! It is less than 400 miles. LOL! I can’t believe how many miles you got in this season…and you never know, there might be more!

    Great parade…love the kazoos!

    That food looked great but it cracked me up that they served candied fennel seeds to aid digestion – trying to tell you something??? 😉

    The parade was lovely & such a small town feel. Loved the kazoo band & your next car! 🙂

    You got some great biking in EXCEPT those flat tires!!! UGH!

    Wasn’t it glorious yesterday? It was supposed to be a day of complete rest for me but when the thermometer says 60 I just have to get outside and at least walk.

    We too have a great fondness for Indian food and it’s on my list if I ever win a pick again. We have tied 3 weeks in a row now.

    You were the biking queen this year Lori!

    What a great way to end your biking season! That’s a lot of miles!! I knew you rode a lot, but I was surprised at the total.

    I love Indian food! Chicken Tiki Masala and Dahl are my favorites!! Perfect winter meals!
    You sure put a lot of miles on the bike! I didn’t keep track. I like the idea and will try to remember to do that next season!!! I am so sad about the cold coming and having to put my bike up for a few months!
