Pasta with Shrimp, Thai Chile & Basil.

Things are getting pretty serious in the Lewis-Baker household.

While I’m taking a brief respite from running (read: eating super cheesy late-night nachos in Binghamton), His Lordship is ramping up his triathlon season.

Ergo, there’s a bit of a carb sitch in the ol’ kitchen.

Happy bikini season!
