Corn on the cob,(grilled in the husk, of course!)
Baked Beans
Cole Slaw
Macaroni salad
Funnel cake
Watermelon

If I'm still awake, I'll be firing up a Macanudo at the end of the day...

What is 'Victory Hop Devil'??? Sounds awesome btw....I just went out and picked a gallon of blueberries. That's the sum total of my food-related work so far today. We'll see if I can muster the energy to get the grill fired up sometime today :)

Today, we're having about 15 people over, so I'm going simple. Dogs and brats, and easy-drinking beer (namely Miller Lite.)

But last night, I grilled Chesapeake steak and shrimp for mom and dad, mom's best friend and I. It turned out really, really well. Some of the best T-bones I've ever had; and the shrimp was danged-near indescribable.

Y'all have the best Fourth of your lives. Be safe, and eat and drink well!!!!

Going simple here too. Bleu cheese burgers, fries, baked beans, and a couple of cold Sam Adams. Hey...it's the 4th of July :)

It's an IPA brewed by Victory Brewing Company. They're a small brewer, located near Philly.

It's pretty hopped up, as the name implies, but you'll still have taste buds after drinking a few. If not for the 6.7% ABV, it would be a great session beer.

I wish I could get that great hop bitterness in a low ABV beer, but I have yet to one. I really enjoy beer for the flavor, not necessarily the buzz,(which I don't mind:D), but you know what I mean.


Here's the beer geek info, according to their web-site...it's brewed with "American whole flowers" hops and imported German 2 row malts"

It's one of the few beers that I consider "keg worthy", along with Heavy Seas, Loose Cannon, (my favorite) and Duclaw's Hellrazer.

Went to a friends house yesterday for ribs. Today I grilled filet mignon and asparagus, plus had rosemary roasted potatoes. To wash it down my wife and I tequila sunrises.
