Tan Tan Noodle Challenge continues and Peaceful takes the lead

Driving home yesterday I was thinking of what to have for lunch when I saw a parking spot right in front of Peaceful. and the Tan Tan noodle challenge was on.  I ordered to go and perhaps that’s not comparing oranges to oranges but Peaceful came out the winner over Lin’s anyway.  The spinach and tofu addition make for a more interesting dish. Peaceful serves it with the sauces on the bottom and the other components separate on top. Once tossed the sauces become rich and thick  The spicing is just right too, not but not overpowering.  Both have excellent handmade noodles but Peaceful  makes the better dish.

Monday morning David started our day with this amazing skillet breakfast of potato, egg and curd.  Add some sauce and it’s a new poutine.  It was delicious.

Light workout this morning, feeling quite sore from Sunday and Monday.  10 minute bike, crunches, push ups and stretches.

I ate about 2,000 calories yesterday.  It is possible to eat great food and eat low colorie if there are no extras or alcohol.

Rainy Saturday morning

7:45 Workout done.  Coffee in hand.  Nothing I HAVE  to do until afternoon.

A lighter workout this morning.  15 minutes bike but no sprints and no weights.

We had dinner at Lin’s last night and though I love their hand made noodles and the honey prawns are amazing, the Tan Tan soup wasn’t the best.  Peaceful may be.  We’re going to have to try them all again soon.  A week of Tan Tan.  Chongqing’s sauce is sometimes fantastic and sometimes too hot and they don’t make the noodles.  Peaceful adds some nice crispy tofu.

The Bok Choy with 2 kinds of mushrooms was pretty great.

At The Travel Group’s Friday Winedown we opened a bottle of Sandhill 2011 Cabernet Merlot from Vanessa Vineyards and it disappeared so fast I barely tasted it.  We toured the vineyard just before they picked the grapes so I’m quite partial to the wine.

I ate 2,700 calories yesterday.
