Beer & Kale: The Bachelor Life For Me

Jen elected to go out to see the Mets tonight. I guess they're a baseball team or something. Personally, I've never heard of them. I think she might be making the whole thing up. One thing is certain: it's time for a killer bachelor night!

Those who follow the blog will be well aware of my past bachelor exploits. I can't believe I'm sharing my wild and crazy bachelor hijinks here on this blog. What if Jen were to read this???

I decided that the best way to celebrate my bachelor freedom was with a healthy salad of raw kale! That's right. Raw kale, dawg!

I combined some kale, strawberries and baby spinach then tossed with balsamic, olive oil, salt and pepper. I topped this all with chopped almonds and crumbled goat cheese.

The perfect An accompaniment to this healthy dinner was Thomas Hooker Munich-Style Golden Lager. This beer was available in only 12-packs so I was a little hesitant to give it a try. After trying it I predict a second 12-pack on the horizon. The proceeds from the 12-pack are going to some charity or another but pay that no mind, it's worth it just for the beer. Being a local brewery (to us, anyway) I'm always in favor of supporting them and this beer, much like their Blonde Ale, comes extremely highly recommended.

To top all this off: some playoff hockey. What can I say, I'm a rebel. I would have watched my DVD of Felicity: Season 1 but I let my bro borrow it. It's okay, I'm borrowing his home manicure set so I will just have to be happy using that in the meantime.

When the cat's away, the mice will play.
