|This is what has been keeping me company on the long, lonely nights without my husband.|
* First came Root Beer..... then came Beer Beer.... and now, I can claim I have conquered my final beer, Ginger Beer! You may recall I drank some with my Jamaican dinner in Wisconsin, and I found it fine. The other day, my husband was generous enough to let me drink one of his prized bottles of Cock 'n Bull Ginger Beer. And I made it through just fine, no problems! I don't like it as like much as I like Ginger Ale.... but it wasn't too long ago that I didn't like Ginger Ale either! So, maybe Ginger Beer will grow on me in time. Now, at least if we are serving my World Famous Moscow Mules to friends, I can have one with everyone else.... but I still will refuse to drink it from a copper mug. Me and my sensitive teeth don't enjoy the feeling of drinking from ice cold copper. :-/
* I went out for lunch with a couple of friends the other day to Mohawk Bend, where I happily drank my First Ever Local LA Beer On Tap. It was a Yellowtail Kolsch, and I enjoyed it very much! I also enjoyed pretending I was back in Wisconsin for the day, eating a sandwich and drinking beer with my lunch. :-)
|Here I am, dreaming of Wisconsin. I'm with Penny Marshall again, who I run into around town more than you can imagine! I've had at least 3 Penny Marshall encounters!|
* Finally, I really am a changed woman..... I went to Musso and Frank last night... and did I order a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned?!? No, I did not, because all I had been thinking about all day (when I wasn't thinking about that Chicken Salad) was how delicious and refreshing a Gin & Tonic would be! I marched right in and got one, and thoroughly enjoyed it! If you told me 6 months ago that I would willing opt for a G&T as my M&F drink, I would not have believed you!
|Of course, a girl can't live on G&T alone...|
OK, I'll be back when I have anything to report.... or when it's time to write up my monthly Progress Report. I'm proud of myself this month.... it's gonna be a great report this time! :-) In the meantime, I'm gonna go and make myself a Chicken Salad with Pickles and Lima Beans.....
