I like being alone at the cottage.
The days are similar, each blending into the next. I get up, have breakfast, ride, prepare a recovery drink, make lunch, work around the cottage, make dinner, and then read a “who-done-it” until I fall asleep. I rise and fall with the sun. Much of the day is centred around food – buying and preparing it. This is something I’m not allowed to do at home. I’m told, that’s not my job. But when I’m alone, it is an integral, and enjoyable, part of every day.
This trip, I made a lot of wraps with a variety of ingredients. Rice. Lentils. Beans. Sweet potato. Tomato. Cucumber. Lettuce. Spinach. Tofu. Scrambled eggs. I would cook a pot of rice, keep it in the refrigerator ready for my post-ride meal, and add whatever ingredients I had on hand. It was quick, easy, and nourishing. My favourite, as it turns out, is a combination of rice, lentils, sweet potato, scrambled egg, tomato, and baby spinach.
