Windy Road Ride and Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos

Did a road ride of 34 miles today and it was a windy
 one.  Lucky that I was riding in a group, so we could all take turns up front pulling each other through the head wind.  Our route started at the Methodist Church on Judd Parkway in Fuquay and took us on a loop that reached to Angier.  From there we looped around some back country roads past Harnett Central High School on over to 401.  Then took 401 down to Piney Grove Wilbon that ran us into 42 Hwy that got us back to the church.  We started in one group of about 18 riders.  One rider got a flat about 6.5 miles into the ride and then the tube blew again while trying to blow it up, so we split into 2 groups.  1 rider went back to get a car while 2 waited and the 2 groups took off about 3-4 minutes apart.  Other than that the ride was fine except for that head wind that no matter which direction we were riding it was in our faces.

Now on to the dinner I fixed tonight.  Nothing better after throwing down 34 miles then some homemade mexican food.  This is probably one of my favorite meals to make for the family.  First time I saw the Bang Bang Shrimp recipe from Bonefish Grill was in the Food Network Magazine we receive at home.  Before this I had had this numerous times at the restaurant.  When we make this at the house we do not put all the shrimp in the sauce since the kids think it is to spicy.  Now for the wife and I, we normally have the tacos with chopped tomato, chopped avocado and some shredded mexican cheese.  The kids like the shrimp with sour cream and cheese in the soft taco shells.
