Saturday night drinking thread

What is everyone having to enjoy this evening?  I'm still rolling through my Molson Canadians.

What are you watching?

BIG question:  Kraft Mac and Cheese or Velveeta?

Kraft guy, here.

The girlfriend pitched her team to a conference tournament championship and will be pitching in the NCAA Division 1 Softball Tournament at a location TBD. Unbelievably happy for her (and the other girls, most of whom are friends), and am running out to get enough champagne for whoever is stopping by tonight. I am going to drink until the last bottle is gone, and it will all taste sweet.

Also, Velveeta, but I do love me some Kraft spirals.

I've only seen a video of them all jumping in the hotel pool and them posting pictures with individual medals, and a lot of all caps stuff has edged out the other messages on my phone, but I'll see what I can do.

Selection Sunday is tomorrow, so we're waiting to see where they're placed. Ann Arbor would be great because it's close and I can stay with family instead of getting a hotel, but it'd be a strange feeling come game time.

And yeah, I met her when a high school friend went there to play and now I'm here taking graduate classes and training/rehabbing my knee, living the dream with her. Great group of young ladies and she's the greatest among them.

I am drinking some Angry Orchard hard cider at the moment - it is pretty good actually. It has a taste reminiscent of Mott's cider, so perhaps this is what it should have been. Downing this while watching the Tigers.

When it comes to macaroni and cheese, I am definitely a Kraft person, although I will admit to adding a pinch of basil and a teaspoon of olive oil for flair.

GI 312.

Then? I'm thinking maybe Ardmore, A we dram, yeah. Or perhaps I will try to mix a gin flip. No cream, but I can make a passable one with some condensed milk.

I have a bottle of Founders Doom and Brooklyn Sorachi Ace in the fridge, but no one wants to join me and it hasnt been rough enough for me to drink an entire bomber, so I think I am going to either drink some Double Trouble or Nugget Nectar.

Edit: Kraft for sure, but I think stouffers is still my favorite non made from scratch.

Drinking a homebrew: the White House Honey Porter recipe brewed for the innauguration

Kraft mac and cheese, but I prefer a traditional southern baked mac and cheese.

Went out for Italian for dinner so started with a glass of chianti, had some port with dessert, and continuing with some port at home. Good times.

2011 merlot.  very smooth. 

10 yr old just skinned his first raccoon and some of the younger brothers wanted to eat it  since we process all of our other meat (normal stuff, like beef, venison, chicken)- oh i had to supress my favorte comments about raccoon and tell them that unless we were starving, we won't be eating mr. raccoon.   i can't help but wonder if coon goes with merlot, but i'm never going to find out!

""I've eat quite a bit of coon in my life, but this here recipe on this innernet hickey is real good. I spotlighted me a extry big coon and it took some doing to git it out of the dang tree even with three beagles but one beagle can't see out of his left eye too good cause of chasin a possum in a briar patch and didn't mind me when I kept hollerin at him to get back here. So I guess he got what he had comin but I still hate it for him. The coon was bigger than most and a old one so I let him soak in salt water overnight then boiled him to soften him up and didn't have no sweet taters so I used white taters and a few extry like I say cause he was so big and all. I put him on the barby like they say down there in Australier and let him cook real slow and damn he was tasty. He was so tender and good one of them PETER folks would set aside their veginarian ways for a minute and enjoy theirselves real good. Well the youngun wants her webtv back so I better git off here. God bless the CSA. Or USA. Hell, God bless em both.

Drinkin' some Bud Light that has been in my basement fridge for a few weeks.

Have the Tigers on tv but muted because I am jamming on to some tunes.

 

BTW, Kraft.
