Yesterday, Thursday, we were in the finish town, that means that dinner is earlier than on the other days, that then means that we are finished before normal – YEAH! It was really really really warm again yesterday and I had to use my computer for really really important work stuff other than blogging and twitter ;) – The problem was that due to the heat in the truck my computer overheated , basically just like me, and wouldn’t record anything or open or close – it just froze from exhaustion… so I’m gonna try again today. Also Internet connections are not always the best … Hmmm!!!
Because I’m the only female on the team I get to share a room with no-one, so of course it makes sense that I get put in a different hotel if there is not enough rooms… or something. Anyway yesterday I was 2,5k away on the wrong side of the race – so I had to hurry to the riders hotel to not get stuck in the race – resulting in Troels having to cook everything – so my break was short, but I had some extra stuff done in the truck though – always good :).
Soooooo…. Da dadada da da daaaaaaaaa – TONIGHT, Ladies and Gentlemen another battle begins – The Vuelta Chef Battle stage 2. Sean from Garmin – Sharp has chosen the three magic ingredients:
- butternut squash
Last time it went down well – but there was a little confusion to how many dishes and ingredients was allowed, but this time everything is settled:
1 dish, the three main ingredients plus add-ons such as dry products and dairy.
Only problem this time is, that Søren and Peter has had trouble finding dill – so maybe they will do with a substitute – tonight we will find out.
I will put up the pictures of all the dishes plus a Poll for voting late tonight after dinner – so remember to check back for that.
And now you are thinking – “WHO WON STAGE 1 ?”
We have had 202 votes for stage one – lets see if we can top that for tonight !
Yesterdays menu was a real comfort menu and here it is:
- Waldorf salad – saxo bank tinkoff bank style
- turmeric quinoa, cherry tomato, apple and caramelized onion
- chicken, white beans and grilled fennel
- whole wheat spaghetti bolognaise
- Rice, spelt bread and fruit
- greek yoghurt with mixed berries and homemade peach sorbet
Ohh, look at the time – I need to get down to the kitchen truck and start up for dinner, so long until tonight, where the exciting vuelta chef battle stage 2 happens.
