Bacon Lattice

Any recipe
That includes “bacon lattice”
Has got to be good

Written by Captain Hops.

References: How’s this for some fun: Raspberry Chipotle Marinated Spiral Stuffed Pork Loin with a Bacon Lattice. You bring the beer, I will build the bacon lattice. Mmmm… bacon lattice…

Speaking of bacon and beer. Clipper City is throwing their Beer and Bacon Festival in a couple of weeks. If you are in the Baltimore area, you should see if there are any tickets left.

Ouch

It’s a damn good thing
That you can’t fall off the floor
He said groggily.

Impossible To Screw Up

fearing a wrong choice
she stared at her options, but…
with beer it’s all good

Written by Captain Hops.

References: Beer is still democracy’s drink. Don’t get bent out of shape because you’re worried some beer snob will criticize what you bring or serve at a party. Even though there is a lot more variety of styles, flavor, brands, and quality of beer out there now, there is no need to fret over what you buy. Get what you like, get what you can afford, get what your dad used to drink, get the one you’ve never tried, get the one with the cool label. Every beer drinker I know, snob or not, will cheerfully drink any beer you put in front of them. It ain’t an exclusive club after all. It’s beer.

Late in the evening
On the couch with a good beer
And a bad movie
