Beer is good! ...and stuff. Let's go drink some BEER!
They say beer will make me dumb. It are go good with pizza.
So, I've discovered that beer really IS good (and stuff). I'm very lucky to live less than five minutes' walk to the Total Wine, where they have a nice selection of single bottles. Making mix-packs is more fun than it probably should be (oh! I found a Monty Python Holy Grail Ale! I don't know if I'll like it, but I don't care because it's Monty Python beer).
I also like spicy things, so when I found a chili beer, I snatched it right up!
....It's like drinking liquid hot pepper.
Which is great, if that's what you're in the mood for, but since I generally like to eat spicy foods with my beer... meh.
It's also great for when you're not in the mood to taste beer, because this doesn't taste like beer at all.
But, somehow, I still find it somewhat enjoyable. I also have this urge to get the peppers out of the bottle and cook with them. Or, you know, maybe I'll just cook with the beer itself--I do have a burrito recipe that uses half a bottle of Corona.
...Hmm. I have burritos on the dinner plan for this Wednesday night!
(And more soon about that hot pepper garlic pasta sauce! It was wonderful with gnocchi and I'm sure it will also be wonderful with the lemon chive fettucine that I just found in the kitchen!)
