This was our work break yesterday afternoon. I’m working on a gigantic, king sized custom word quilt for a customer in Northern Ca. This job involves lots of cutting and squaring up the seams with a see through grid ruler and a rotary cutter that sorta looks like a pizza cutter. There’s no pattern for this quilt, I just make it up as I go along. It’s like putting together a giant puzzle. It’s really hard work, but it’s fun because the fabrics are so beautiful and I like to put words together that don’t necessarily go together, like Professor Cheese Bread. I’m definitely going to make one of these for my husband.
So my thoughtful and awesome husband surprised me with a beer break, yum. There’s something about drinking beer in the middle of the day that reminds me of ditching school. It’s so wrong, but it feels so right.
This Pliny the Elder is delicious. Our nephews in Chicago told us about it, they’re beer brewers! They’d heard of a California beer called Pliny the Elder and wanted to know if we’d tried it yet. So of course we had to search for it. It’s hard to get at our local beer and wine shop, they only get one shipment a week and it sells out right away. So you have to go there in the afternoon to get it.
It has 8% alcohol! Zounds! The notes on the bottle say to consume it right away. “Cheese should be aged, Not Beer” Anyway, it’s very good! It’s hoppy and tastes like they roasted the grains for a long time. Mmm, beer.
