to play football, not to play trumpet
I live in the yoop (near Marquette), about as far away from Ohio you can get and still live in Michigan.
With that said, tonight I'm drinking UV Cake Vodka mixed with Creme Soda, and I may just wake up in the woods somewhere.
Who makes eggs benedict at home? Don't get me wrong, I love eggs benedict, but I would never want to make it. Did you have Hallandaise and everything?
I used to want to be a chef (then i realised how difficult the hours are). I hardly ever go out to eat, I make all our food at home from scratch. I even grow a lot of our own produce. Kind of my hobby... or... one of my many hobbies.
That's pretty awesome. It's cool to be able to cook good things.
And you've inspired me. I'm now thawing out ground beef for my hamburger helper. You're not the only chef on this board.
My aunt is an amazing, trained cook/chef/whatever, and her homemade eggs benedict is one of my favorite things ever.
She also owns/operates a food delivery/catering service in A2 that I've been meaning to plug on here; I can guarantee that the food is delicious, if anyone is interested in taking a look or ordering.
Edit: probably not the best time to put this out there, since she's taking her annual vacation next week, but whatever. I encourage everyone in Ann Arbor to take a look. It's high quality, local and healthy.
Better than my night. NCAA Football 12 after cleaning the livingroom so my borther and law can come have a sleepover. At least I can get my game on
Im so excited to see Jose Torres. I think that kid is going to be a huge contributor in our midfield for the next 2 World Cup cycles.
I felt inspired by my excursion to Metzger's this evening and picked some up on the way home...
Grape Kool-Aid and Pork flavored Ramen. *sigh*
Off to sample my roommate's latest home brew, apparently he tried to mimic Two-Hearted. I'm trying to contain my excitement.
I guess a blind squirrel finds, you know, but I would definitely contain that excitement. Maybe 6 deep the flavor will be there! Report back on the "quality".
and so far have had a couple of beers my brother-in-law brought over: Heavy Seas Loose Cannon and Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye. The first I've had before and it's pretty solid. The latter not so much.
From there I'll probably grab one of my latest acquisitions, Troegs Nugget Nectar. People seem to be pretty excited about that one. My only problem is that I can't help but comparing beers to Hopslam now and NN is no Hopslam.
I tried Ruthless Rye for the first time last weekend. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't what I expected.
Sam Adams Latitude 48 IPA. Yummy.
tumbler and bushmill's
The usual for me. Starting off with some wine (sauvignon blanc) and moving on to Fat Tire later. Looking for a movie to watch; I think I have it down to Taxi Driver or a 90's indie called Flirting With Disaster, anyone have any thoughts?
Tire is a great beer, but I can never seem to find it in Philly. I am enjoying a Guinness, my go to drink of choice. I vote for Taxi Driver, nothing like 70's DeNiro as a Vietnam War Vet cabbie!
From Bear Republic since the brewery is right down the street! Shit is potent
After the Boxed Franzia last week (shit did get real) I thought I would tone it down a little this week with some Blue Moon Spring Blonde Wheat Ale.
I was gonna buy that but changed my mind last second... It's pretty tasty though
Friday is normally rum or scotch for me but I think I'm in the mood to switch it up and just have a nice plain Bell's Amber. Beer is good for you.
Amber bock. Nothing beats it.
I gotta say, though, it's next Friday's drinking adventures I'm really looking forward to. This time next week I'll be in Peru, celebrating my cousin's wedding. I hope they have good beer down there. Got to try the local brew wherever you go.
Cusquena and shellfish ceviche - breakfast of champions.
Started with a Boulevard cocktail, now easing into some Moose Drool while the kids watch Over the Hedge.
It's no Ice Age or Cars, but not bad.
In fort lauderdale with my dad going deep sea fishing In the morning....
Capt Morgan private stock and coke
Hendricks gin, tonic, and a little cucumber
Ya know, typical Friday night.
megangoblue pitched (and batted?!) against Temple today and I couldn't help but think of you while I was watching the game.
Was she pitching for the Mastodons of IPFW?
Huge 2 - 1 win in the season opener for the good guys.
I'd disagree with you about the outcome, of course (haha). Not a bad game for her, but not the greatest, either. Batting wise, they just couldn't capatalize on pitching that apparently wasn't as good as the stats suggest. Either way, your Owls won and you have to respect that at the end of the day.
Old fashions and watching to see if Ferris can do it.

Extra Special Bitter
having a Kileans. 32oz. Ice Cold
In my high school years, Killian's was the first adult beverage that taught me that I don't have (or want) to drink everything containing alcohol in sight. I know it's got a solid following, but my palate just doesn't agree with amber lagers / ales.
whatever I can find after that stinker at BGSU.
*edit* I am going out to find some grain alcohol
It was a looong week at work... spent the first part in Colorado, then had to go to Florida. And for those of you who might think work trips are fun and glamorous... trust me, they're not. They get old real fast.
What do you do?
Work to grow our business both through acquisitions and strategic internal projects
Yuengling's. Had to make a run to the state to the south and picked up a 12 pack
Had a Strongbow Hard Cider at Pizza House with dinner, and now I'm having a Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat as a nightcap (yes, a nightcap. When you do systems support for accountants, they want you to suffer with them when they work Saturdays during tax season). In retrospect, I wish I had just grabbed a Honey Brown from the fridge instead...
savida red sangria
Marshall Atlas IPA.
Marshall Brewing Company is local here in Tulsa. Highly recommend trying their brews if you are ever down this way.
I made lasagna for some family - homemade sauce, homemade noodles, homemade ricotta, all surprisingly easy. Drinking some Lagunitas Sucks, some New Belgium Dig, and some weird IPA I found at the grocery store.
homemade cheese might be cooking's best kept secret. So little work, so much tasty payoff.
How the heck do you make homemade cheese?
Well for ricotta, you just have to put 3 cups whole milk and 1 cup heavy cream in a saucepan with a little salt and slowly bring it up to 190 degrees, then take it off the heat and add a few tablespoons of lemon juice and let it sit for 5 minutes to separate the curds from the whey, then pour it all in a cheesecloth lined strainer and let it drain for 90 minutes. What's left is ricotta.
red stripe tonight
From Alpine, near San Diego...called Bad Boy...yummy
It didn't go great, but not terribly either, so I'm conflicted.
As a result of my confliction, I started with a Highland Park scotch and have now moved to a bottle of ABC Red Snapper. I like it. An excellent hoppy pale, but the roasting process mellows the sharp edge on the hops.
My doctor suggested cutting back on carbs, so I thought I'd change from the usual beer to gin and tonic....then I read the ingredients and nutritional info. on the tonic water. Yikes. I guess I'll skip the tonic and just sip gin with a lime twist. And when I run out of gin go back to beer.
I was shocked when I discovered tonic has as much sugar in it as coke. That's why us women often choose soda over tonic. Vodka soda with a lemon is my old standby.
Detroit Brewing Co. - Sanders Chocolate Stout. Delicious to say the least. Oops just spilled a little on my keyboard.
WVU's student section looking like they wanna fight Marquette's coach in the postgame interview! Security got there in a hurry haha
Several pitchers of miller lite and two pints of Founders reds rye. 90 min before I came out. Two bars to go
I've not had enought alcohol to get up the nerve to come out yet. Congrats to you.
He said to the thousands of registered users on MGoBlog.
The Internet. More powerful than alcohol.
hi friday night drinkers! wanna send a umich group to the white house? we're so close! and it's so easy! (this isn't a scam)
quick vote for "SEE ACT 2012": www.campuschallenge.uservoice.com
several mgobloggers (including me) are involved with a group called Students for Educational Equality on campus. We provide free ACT tutoring at college mentoring to 300 studets in Detroit, Dearborn, and Ypsilanti. We've been picked by the White House as one of the 15 finalists in the Campus Champions of Change Competition. If we get to the top five, we get to go to the White House and meet with the President.
unfortunately, we're getting killed right now by a bunch of other schools (mizzou, arkansas, princeton, brown, arkansas, umass....and grinnell. which has a grand total of 1688 students. it's not osu or msu, but we gotta beat them nonetheless). please keep forwarding this to people! unfortunately undegrads are all on spring break right now so we're having a tough time reaching out to people...
if you'd like to know anything more about SEE, let me know!

A couple of margaritas and a bottle of Sancerre. Headin' to Cancun mañana!
Do the whiskey before the Bass ales. Maple syrup goes on the table BEFORE the pancakes...before the pancakes.
vodka...Smirnoff. What else would I be drinking? Combine with flavored soda and a splash of cran with a lime twist. Delicious. Good buzz. Low calories.
Red Stag and coke, after a few sapphire and sodas. Just found out the girl i'm into is into another guy. Hold me, TomVH.
Amstel Lights and grape dutches.
...after a grueling shift tending bar. Now enjoying The Matrix and a Young's Double Chocolate Stout.
Drank a lot of jungle juice
Most of my worst college nights started that way.
at the pub with a friend last night
