Harry Potter fans delight – have I got a beer for you!!
After a boring working afternoon followed by an hour walk followed by my FIRST shower of the day (ahhh!), Matt and I sat down to our Wednesday night treat:
Witches and wizards, may a present …Butterbeer
The Pumking by Southern Tier is no ordinary pumpkin ale.
…Luscious butterscotch sauce
…A sweet vanilla-pumpkin cupcake
…A beer with the most delicious buttery nose you can ever imagine!
I kid you not.
While we drank, dinner cooked.
In the crockpot. Minus onion. Plus red curry powder. Plus tomato paste. Minus spinach. Plus kale.
All the ingredients were set to high for 3 hours while we went for a walk and sipped our butterbeer.
DEElicious. I loved the big chewy kale bites! Wish we’d use as many mushrooms as Emily did. They were the best part!
About 25% of the way into my bowl I thought "I am already filling up quickly." 50% later, I passed the last 4th on to Matt. It was really filling!
But my tongue was not done – had to sample a bit of chocolate before we closed down the kitchen.
These chocolatey treats came from Love Street Living Foods. Organic chocolate and fudge bars made with really cool ingredient lists, including Ecuadorian cacao, Indian vanilla bean, cayenne, Indonesian coconut crystal sugar.
- The Chocolate Super Fudge was super rich and fudgy with almost a honey taste from agave sweet
- The Maple and Coconut Crystal bars were CRUNCHY – just a tad – from the crystallized sugars. My crunchy palate LOVED the texture!! The flavor was great too – nice and buttery!
- The Goji bar was creamy, chewy AND crunchy – more texture love.
I loved the true cacao flavor of them all. And just a taste was enough to satisfy the after-dinner palate. (Matt said they might be the best chocolates he’s ever had and kept asking for more.)

Look how these rubber bands just happened to fall on my desk!
Just started The Help last night and love it so far! [American Wife was not my favorite. I felt like each section that passed lost momentum and my interest, and it took me forever to finish.]
