I've had a busy week so here is my update to my project 365. These last six days include a frozen beer, some veggies, a bird, a choo-choo, a very tired bike rider and some fish. Enjoy!
Day 122-Frozen IPA
A few days ago I asked Pam to put a beer in the freezer to "quick chill" it. Well, today I opened the freezer to find this, a completely frozen IPA:
I thawed it out (it took 3 hours) and poured it into a glass. Surprisingly there was still a tiny bit of carbonation and as I poured it into the glass the head froze into a whipped cream texture.
The flavor was still there as well. It was drinkable but not as good as if I hadn't forgotten about it and let it freeze in the first place.
Day 123-Chicken and Chard
We eat a lot of greens. One of our favorites is Swiss Chard. Tonight we had it with some boneless chicken thighs.
Day 124-Male Cardinal
This little guy stopped by the birdbath on our deck for a late afternoon drink. The light was fading a little so the shutter speed was 1/4 second. As a result I got little blur in his "crown".
Day 125-Chattanooga Choo-Choo
We drove to Chattanooga, TN on Friday so I could ride in the 3 State 3 Mountain Century. We ate Dinner at the Terminal Brewhouse, a nice brewpub in downtown Chattanooga. The pub is right across the street from the Chattanooga Choo-Choo Museum and the sign for the museum is visible from the patio. I took this image and ran it through Topaz Adjust to bring out the colors in the sign.
Day 126-100 Mile Self Portrait
Here's what I looked like after finishing the 2012 edition of the 3 State 3 Mountain Century, which was held in Chattanooga, TN. This was the 5th year that I have done this ride. It was 103 miles of cycling through Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. The weather ranged from fog and rain to bright, humid sunshine. About 2,000 cyclists participated in this year's ride which was the 25th anniversary.
As you can probably tell from the photo, I was tired and a little sore. I took this about 10 minutes after I finished but before I had any of the post-ride food, which helped considerably.
Day 127-Something Fishy
We stopped by the local international market to pick up some fish for Dinner.
