Tonight was a dinner with the ‘rents. Given all the nonsense in their lives as of late, I thought I would treat them to a nice dinner and then bore them to tears with a narration of 996 vacation photos. No joke. 996. But they really wanted to see them! It was their idea!
Appetizer: Grapes and cheese with the Wild Blue Blueberry Lager
Main Course: Black Jack Chicken Breast (from the grill) with Sweet and Sour Asparagus and Sam Adams Lager
Dessert: Grilled Banana Splits with Homemade Butterscotch Sauce and Leinenkugal's Berry Weiss
The grapes and cheese with the Wild Blue Lager was a fair way to start the evening. I say all that with knowledge that the beer was really not very good. I think the muchies helped to compliment it, but the beer itself is rather poor. Perhaps I will babble on about it on another day. Maybe later this week.
The banana split was excellent and was also from the CIA. Cut the 'ole naners in half lengthwise, coat with melted butter and grill for one minute on each side. Homemade butterscotch sauce is easy as hell, too. Add some ice cream (French Vanilla), slivered almonds and some whipped cream and you are good to go. Ultimately, you are not really doing much. We enjoyed it so much I forgot to get out the Leinenkugals!
All this sounds really crazy, but I swear to you its not. Quit complaining and do it!
