Happy All Hallows Eve!

Happy All Hallows Eve!

Everything started fine around here.  Last night, Julia Child Natalie made pumpkin cupcakes with a cream cheese/maple syrup frosting. They are every bit as good as they sound. In fact, more!

We'll be at the Fort Street Brewery tonight around 9:00pm.  Join us for a pint if you're interested!

It is hardly a secret that Natalie and I drink beer.  We travel for it.  We cook with it. We brew it home. I have a spreadsheet listing my beer conquests.  A week does not go by when we are not thinking about beer and all the possibilities that it brings.  

Imagine my surprise when I got home from work one night.  A bottle cap was on the counter.  I didn't leave it there from the night before.  The bottle opener was not hanging on the cupboard where we always put it.  Something was certainly amiss.

A short walk in to the family room and what do I see......

Apparently, Quill likes beer, too.  But mysteries remain.... did he open the bottle without opposable thumbs? did he carry the bottle without spilling any? long has this been going on? 

I'll try and keep you posted.
