LGA Club Ride

We started at Leroy Greene Academy, rode across the Jibboom Street Bridge at Discovery Park,

through Old Sacramento to Marie’s Donuts at the corner of Freeport Blvd and Vallejo.

We met up with Elle Steele and Kidical Mass. They were having a group ride from Marie’s Donuts to William Land Park, about 2 miles away. The variety of child-carrying bicycles was amazing.

Boysenberry pie a la mode

Remember Merrilyn’s Boyseberry Galette from February 26?

I’d hoped to make tiny galettes for the next RLEHS Throwdown, but my first attempt on Feb 28 was a big failure. I needed to try something else.

For the next batch on March 1, I used Merrilyn’s recipe and put the pastry rounds in a mini-muffin tin. The tiny flower cut-out and sparkling white sugar, also from Merrilyn, were the perfect topping.

I told Justin he could have as many as he wanted but had no idea he could eat SIX of them. (Then again, when he was about 10 years old, he ate 20 of Maria’s tacos in one sitting.)

Another practice batch on March 7. image

The RLEHS Throwdown is today and 48 little boysenberry pies are going into the trunk to be driven carefully to Rio Linda. I’ll serve them with a little scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Big thanks to my consulting team: Merrilyn and Phyl; and the many people who taste-tested everything, including the office staff at WALKSacramento. (Noooo, I’m not competitive.)
