Noodle salad

Happy 3rd birthday, Swimsuit Competition! Here comes the next part of our series “Cold and tasty noodle dishes” – this lovely noodle salad a.k.a. pesto rosso accompanied me at my first 24 hour swimming that went rather well (maybe because of the food, maybe not). The garlic is the catch – to drop it would be a terrible misdeed, but if you take a little too much, you might have a lot of room in the pool…

  • 400g cocktail tomatoes, quartered
  • 8 tablespoons olive oil
  • a handful of fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • 100g grated Parmesan
  • 100g pine nuts/sunflower seeds, roasted
  • salt, pepper, some oregano
  • 1 clove of garlic (pressed – if you have problems with your opponents, take some more)
  • mix and let rest in the fridge (at least for half an hour, better 2-3 hours)
  • 250g cooked noodles – mix (wonderfully tasty when warm, but equally nice when cold)

Enough for two hungry persons or one endurance competition. Treat with caution and consideration! (Who shares will have less enemies:)

Advanced Swimming

(Swimming) Today: little games to fight the fear of water. “I’ll never laugh about aqua fitness again.” – “Man that’s exhausting!!” Next week: first swimming exercises.

A light that warms no matter where they’ve gone

(Biking) Pretty cold in the shadow… maybe I could write a tool to plan routes based on maximum sunlight? It’s easy to calculate the sun’s position, so we just need very precise topographic data and a good algorithm to to approximate our own position on the map anytime. Hmm. The prototype should be done in a few months. Or, I just hold on for five minutes until I am in the sun again.

That coldness doesn’t only make your limbs lazy…
