RSBC 2018: Week 2

This will be short and sweet. Here's my mileage progress to date: 

Swimming: 0.6 miles  (out of 2.4) -- didn't swim last week

Running: 11.9 miles (out of 26.2)

Biking: 23.5 miles (out of 112)

For cooking, I followed this recipe and made tacos al pastor. Grilled pineapple is sooooo good. So so good. Forgive my cell phone photo. Here's my grilled pork and pineapple waiting to be consumed with cilantro and onions on corn tortillas with smoky salsa. 

From Wikipedia
"Al pastor (from Spanish, "shepherd style"), also known as tacos al pastor, is a dish developed in Central Mexico that is based on shawarma spit-grilled meat brought by the Lebanese immigrants to Mexico.[1] Being derived from shawarma, it is also similar to the Turkish döner kebab and the Greek gyros. Although shawarma and döner are usually lamb-based (thus the "shepherd-style" name), gyros and tacos al pastor in Mexico are pork based. In some places of northern Mexico, as in Baja California, this taco is called taco de adobada."

Given the similarities with shawarma and kebabs, it's no wonder that I loved tacos al pastor when we visited Mexico City last year. Grilling it at home is not the same as having the meat sliced off a huge trompo, but it's still darn good.
