Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#448)...plus Dominic and his Dog


On the bike (above)...an antique oak table.

About the below photo...Generally speaking the Things That Can be Carried on a Bike series are pictures of things that I carry on my bike. But sometimes I photograph other people carrying things with bikes that I find interesting. The below photo is one of them. That's Dominic and his dog (sorry...can't remember the dog's name). I was unstrapping the above table from my bike when I saw Dominic and his dog coming down the street and stop at a neighbor's house. I asked if I could take their picture and he said yes. His dog, which looked to be not tethered, just laid there and smiled. Dominic told me all he has to do is ask him if he wants to go for a ride and he hops on the trailer. He also told me they rode in from South Buffalo, which is nearly ten miles from where the picture was taken. Nice.

For about a month now I've been wondering what the hell these were hanging off the cucumber vines in my garden. When I googled orange cucumber I found that there are/were multitudes wondering the same thing. It also seems that most, like me, thought they were planting pickling cucumbers. As it turns out (from the best that I can tell) these are a somewhat new crossbred variety designed to be loaded with vitamins. To read short article about them at the website of the USDA click here. To see a photo of them compared to pickling cucumbers (what I thought I was planting) click here. They are interesting looking...and tasty, too...they have an almost acidic, lemony aftertaste to them...I s…

I eat a lot of bread; I always have. I eat bread virtually with every meal, and thus I feel that I am living proof that bread does not make a person fat. I find it odd that humans have been consuming bread in one form or another for something like 6 thousand years...and all of a sudden it is considered fattening. The problem, I think, is lifestyle and the quality of the bread you consume...I'll admit …

Ezekiel Bread...my interpretation

I've posted recipes for this bread--or variations of it--in the past on numerous occasions, but the two most popular are here and here. Those two posts, in fact, draw the largest amount of visitors to this blog everyday (through search engines, I imagine). Yup, I can carry things on my bike until I'm blue in the face, and talk about quotes and all things spiritual...but the topic that gets the most hits are my recipes for Ezekiel Bread.

This post is a little different in that I made the bread at home (opposed to at work in a commercial kitchen), and I did not use any refined (white) flour; just whole wheat. And for that reason the recipe is slightly different than the others (a printable recipe follows the pictures). This one, I believe, is more true...refined flour was unknown in biblical times. But I'm getting ahead of myself. In this post I also wanted to offer some of my personal views on Ezekiel bread and its recipes in general (I know what you're thinking...here…
