‘c’ is for breakfast.

Standard

after spending the night at daughter #3s’ house

i woke up early at my usual farmer time

everyone else still fast asleep

hunted and gathered food items from their kitchen

soon realizing i had put together a ‘c’ themed breakfast

that was quite satisfying –

coffee with cream, chocolate cookies, cheetos cheese things, computer

i believe all food groups were well represented.

i know this guy might think that ‘c’ is only for cookie, but —

Fried Beer- a crispy creation that lets you bite into your brew.

You receive a plate of fried, ravioli-shaped dough with a dark filling. You take a bite expecting meat and are met with the flavor of warm, rich stout. Welcome to the world of fried beer.

Fried beer is the brainchild of Mark Zable, who debuted his creation at the Texas State Fair in 2010 and won that year’s Most Creative award (an honor also bestowed tofried Coke in 2006). Even for those who might be skeptical of the culinary appeal, one has to admire the logistics of deep-frying a liquid. It would be easy to simply fry a beer-based batter, but fried beer keeps the brew—Guinness, to be specific—intact while frying the pretzel dough around it. This is no easy task. It took Zable three years to figure it out. Although he won’t reveal the exact recipe, speed is key. Each nugget of beer-filled dough should be deep-fried for no more than 20 seconds.

And just how does it taste?  Zable says, “It tastes like you took a bite of hot pretzel dough and then took a drink of beer.”

Have your ID handy. You must be 21 or older to enjoy fried beer.

i have absolutely no idea what it actually is.

things that i do know about it:

corn plays some sort of role

  it is very yellow

things i do not know about it:

is it animal, mineral or vegetable?

if i could be doing anything, i’d be laying on the floor in my birthday suit eating junk food and watching something dumb on tv. – anita baker

IMG_0113 waking up on their first morning here,

the aussie  joeys begin their day,

amidst

junk food,

stuffed animals,

blankets

and

cartoons.

and

in the cottage

of their grandmother,

peaches

who loves them.

 life would be perfect if:

Mondays were fun, junk food was healthy, drama didn’t exist,

and goodbyes were only until tomorrow.
