At some point last night, I mentioned stinging nettle beer
I've got a killer image for the Redundancy series, but I just don't know if I have it in me to wait until Friday to share it.

Speaking of 7shots, where have all the monkeys gone? Having missed (and then made up for) two of my Fridays, I know I can't grouse too much, but there's a whole lot of empty days that've been happening this month. I want my fix!

The maiden voyage of the new and wee sputnik grill was a delight, even if it took a little while to figure out how to light the thing. On the menu were garlic and cheese sausages with fresh baquette and chevre, chips with onion dip, grilled corn on the cob, and something a little special for dessert. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend grilling pitted peach halves once you're finished with your steak and chicken parts. Put 'em right on the grill. Seriously.

Oh, I know that folks were worried, but I'm still drinking Red Stripe. Seems that even I can get sucked in by the sweet promise of a cheap New World lager with a clever marketing campaign. Admittedly, the beer has particular associations for me and the appeal will likely pass as soon as I start craving something more complex, but for now it works just fine. Still hasn't enabled me to dance, though.

It's NOT a fabric softener!

I bought almost the exact same grill at a yard-sale a couple years ago!

Good thing you didn't... it'd just be one more thing to move.

Umm, re-read my comment...

BTW, when would be good to call you?

grilled peaches are the shiznit. sprinkle some sugar on there to carmelize and it's heaven. maybe add some rasperry sauce or a little gelato on the side...*drool*

i do love those red stripe commercials, though they haven't gotten me to buy it yet. the promise of dancing is compelling...

It's an inoffensive little beer that lends itself well to hot weather and spicy food. It has an almost lemony flavor and best of all, it's cheap. ^_^

cheap is good. thanks for the tip. it's really not that i have anything against red stripe- just haven't been in a space where i wanted to try it. though i'm more of an IPA/stout guy, i do appreciate the lighter side sometimes- when the situation calls for it. i have a soft spot for a couple asian beers like kirin and tiger, and i've been known to have an amstel light occassionally as well. we're grilling tonight so maybe i'll give red stripe a try.

I'm there with you, but right now I'm getting twelve packs for what I'm usually willing to spend on six (and sometimes four.) I do have homebrew in the making, but it's got to have time. More importantly, I need to find the motivation (and extra hands) to bottle.

I had an all-grilled meal on Sunday that included grilled peaches sprinkled with brown sugar. Good stuff.

This coming Monday, I'll be doing jerk chicken and grilling some plaintains to go with.

The bug? Oh yeah, I got it.
