Soup of the Day – Beer


Another blustery day, good day for comfort food. I was craving Matzo Ball Soup. So, I headed out to the best deli around – The General Muir. Walking past a different restaurant the sign read “Soup of the Day – Beer” I chuckled. When I was seated I knew what I needed. Soup and beer. Beer2.JPG

Both of them were delicious.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

I decided, for some crazy reason, I would make corned beef and cabbage. It is chilly here and it seemed like a good comfort food. So, I bought beef brisket in a bag, with pickling spices in it. Seemed like a no brainer. The directions said to cover it with water and add the spice packet. I opened the bag, hunk of beef no spices. UH OH. I decided I would cover the meat with chicken broth ( I had a big box of it), a can of beef broth, a half of beer ( I wanted to drink the other half). Pepper corns, fresh ground pepper, garlic salt, allspice and more pepper were added too. I cooked this for 2 1/2 hours. I then added 5 potatoes peeled and quartered, 4 carrots, an onion, and some celery, oh and a head of cabbage, quartered.

Now, the reason I am writing this, this broth was out of this world, delicious. I am sure I cannot remake it again, but I will try. I think it was one of the best soups I have ever made.

What next, cookies for Christmas.


The good thing about losing your memory is that when you lose some money (say, hide it from yourself) you just forget about it. Then, when you find it, it’s like new money. Yahoo.

Oh and stories people have already told you, well they are all new again. This works against you when you are telling the story again.
