So after seeing the post about the seasonal Sam Adams variety pack I saw a commercial about the Noble Pils and it sounded pretty good. Has anyone tried it? If so, what do you think? (I haven't seen it at my local grocery, so it may take a bit of hunting down which I don't want to do if it isn't worth it).
So BF and I are having my parents over for Thanksgiving and it feels like the menu is missing something. Here's what we've got so far:
Grilled lemon rosemary chicken and possibly another protein like ham or fish
Black beans and rice
Mashed potatoes (because the BF loves them and won't eat any of the other sides)
Lemon pie or cheesecake
My mom has volunteered to bring the black beans and rice and desserts. I've thought about a chorizo stuffing but that seems like a lot of starch. I also thought about a salad but that just seems a little lackluster. Any ideas?
So, my BF does not eat any fruits or vegetables beyond apples and potatoes (only french fries, tater tots or mashed). I love to cook and love food but this is making dinner a little difficult, especially when it comes to side dishes as I generally make vegetables.
When it comes to al pastor in Chicago, eventually you have to talk about Tierra Caliente on Ashland. It's gotten so popular that the taqueria opened a new location in Logan Square on Armitage, dubbed Tierra Caliente #2. But which one is the best?
