I am so excited that I just have to make a quick post and I also resolve to actually write some real posts, not just my menus, in the near future. I certainly have lots to post on, but where does the time go?
For the moment I am eagerly anticipating delivery of my first growler of gluten free ale! I found out a while ago that Old Hat Brewery in Lawton MI always has a GF beer on tap. One of their patrons has Celiac. Somehow Lawton is in a location of the state that I rarely every travel too, but one of my friends has to go there more frequently to check tart cherry traps (looking for plum curcuilio ) as part of a rigorous IPM program. Today, on a Saturday, when the pub opens at 11 instead of at 4 as they do during the week, he must travel there for work.
Happy ale coming my way. I have only had the GF lagers, New Grist, Bard’s tale and Redbridge, for the most part. I am not a fan of sorghum lagers, I would rather drink vodka (well, you all know I love vodka anyway). An ale, however is a different beer making method that results in a very different body and flavor. I can’t wait and just wanted to share my excitement with you. I will report back on it later this evening or tomorrow. I am changing today’s menu as we are running to the farmer’s market in Okemos and I hope to find some baby veggies since my garden is producing mostly greens from the broccoli family right now. Strawberries are just coming into season here this week – those are on the list too. I am craving a nice grilled steak and grilled baby veggies (thanks to opening this month’s Bon Appetit before eating lunch or breakfast). So, the pork ribs will have to wait, but we are picking up the smoker today. Big juicy grass fed beef steak, grilled veggies (I like their grilled slaw idea a lot) and cold microbrewed GF ale!
Summer is here!!
