You know you’re a chef, when the first thing you do to prepare for a bike (motorcycle) tour is pack a picnic.
Yes. It is exactly what it sounds like. This weekend is Easter weekend, at least for us Orthodox Greeks. We’ve decided to take off & take the scenic rout to head towards Spetses. I’ve never been there before. A quick google search assures me it’s really quite gorgeous.
I haven’t packed yet, inspire of the fact that we’re all supposed to be leaving at 07:00am. I have however roasted a chicken. Grilled cauliflower. Made a pot of red rice & some creamy gravy. Boiled half a dozen eggs. Made protein bars. Yes. Yes I have made a full on picnic for the journey. Still not packed a lick of clothing though.
I did pack my camera.
You may not know this about me, but I am a very happy person when I’m fed. Calm, mellow, easy going. I’m really quite a joy to be around. Hungry? No. I’m an asshole when I’m hungry. That’s really putting it rather lightly. I’m like a small monster that has been possessed by demons. Does that relate the severity of it to you?
That brings me to a rather important observation… how do people survive on diets all the time? Not all people of course. There are people out there who live in a constant state of fasting. I can’t comprehend it. It’s a good thing I’ve just eaten a big dinner otherwise I’d find the thought rather upsetting.
Let’s leave that there though. What I want to say is, I’m taking off for the weekend. I’ll try & be one of those people who photographs the food they’re served at restaurants & post it here to show you what a marvellous time I’m having.
I’d also like to wish everyone a happy Easter!!! Eat lots of chocolate. Roast a lamb in the garden. Fall into a food coma. Just have an all-round amazing time.
