Well, as promised, today it is back to the WOD with no excused. My feet seem to have healed up (pun intended 🙂 ) quite nicely so I can now move without groaning at every step. And I came across a rather funny little gem about A List of Don’ts for Women on Bicycles Circa 1895. Wow we have come a long way. I wonder what they would have though about the “fair warning” cry of todays modern racer as you drop trow to dawn your spandex short in the parking lot. At least I have never been one to violate the “don’t wear loud hued leggings” rule, as all of my spandex is black.

What’s For Dinner:

Zucchini Pasta with Meatballs

Serves 4, 30 minutes












The Meatballs:

1lb Ground Beef (or meat of your choice)

1/2 c Onion (chopped small)

2 Cloves Garlic (Minced)

1 Egg (lightly beaten)

1 Tbls Italian Seasoning

1 Tbls Coconut Oil

Mix together your ground meat, onion, garlic, egg and spices. Make sure to get it well incorporated and form into 1 inch balls. Place balls in a hot cast iron skillet with oil and cook over med heat until brown all around. (You can also cook them in the oven @ 350F for about 20-25 minutes, but you won’t have the tasty brown bits in your pan.)

The Sauce:

1 cup Mushrooms (quartered)

1 cup Brussels Sprouts (halved)

1/2 cup Butter/ghee

1 cup Chicken Stock

1 bunch Green Onion (chopped)

Ground Pepper and *Sea Salt if you like

Saute your mushrooms and brussels sprouts in butter until tender. Add stock, and onion. Simmer over med-low until sauce is reduced. Season with pepper and salt if you like. While your waiting on your sauce, get your “noodles” julienned.












The Noodles:

4 med Zucchini (julienned thinly)

1 pot boiling water

Julienne your zucchini with one of these and drop into pot of boiling water. Cook for 2 minutes, or just until your “noodles” are tender. Drain and rinse with cold water if you are not serving immediately. This will stop them from cooking so don’t end up with soggy squash. Top with meatballs and sauce, enjoy!
