Happy President’s Day!!
Busy day!! I forget sometimes what it’s like to be out of the house all day
A good day to visit Jefferson’s home, no?
We ventured up the mountain for the debut of Starr Hill’s new Monticello Ale!
Read about the collaboration here. The beer is supposed to be as true to the beer that Jefferson made as possible – using a mix of barley, wheat and corn as well as the closest hops and recipe to that time period.
What did we think?
Not bad. But I think modern beers are better : )
Karen joined us for the adventure and we all went to lunch afterwards
Karen and I both ordered the salad special – local chicken with cannellini beans, roasted peppers, feta cheese and grilled zucchini in a fig balsamic.
As was Matt’s roasted veggie panini – with orzo!
After lunch we had a Great Harvest meeting, and are just now back home and starting to think about dinner. Sipping tea in the meantime!
I’ve been having a stupid issue with my home wifi – something interfering with the Eye-Fi card I think? Anyways, I wasted an hour troubleshooting it already. Gruf! Hopefully it’s fixed…but I might be without my Eye-fi now (FYI, Eye-Fi is a memory card that uploads your photos wirelessly. Normally, it’s AWESOME!)
Have a great evening!
