This turned out to be a boon. Mostly because our late afternoon start to making three varieties of Girl Scout Cookies had left me precious little time to actually make anything for dinner. I finished the grill-marked grouper in the oven. I cooked up some finely chopped onion with butter then tossed in some arborio rice, sherry, and some water before adding the remaining grilled vegetables from Saturday night's pasta. I finished the risotto with a little Parmigiano-Reggiano and served the grilled and roasted grouper on top with a quick mix of butter and basil pesto melted over the top.
For a drink I poured this Old Speckled Hen from Morland Brewing. This reminded me of a nicer version of the crappy English ales I used to drink in my early 20s. Perhaps that is why it says "Fine English Ale" right there on the ale instead of all those beers I used to drink that said "Crappy English Ale" on them.
Take that as a keen observation from a beer lover: avoid beers that announce their crappiness right on the label. The life it saves just might be your own.
