I'm thinking that it'll only be about ten more years until I'm complaining about the kids these days with their loud music and jazz cigarettes.
As I prepared dinner I enjoyed this Double Ale from Grimbergen. Founded in 1128 they've been brewing beer for 883 years. That's 883 years longer than I've been brewing beer!
I can't recall if I had this one in France this summer but I did have their Blonde and enjoyed it quite a bit. This bottle looked and tasted like it's probably been hanging around in the liquor store for a little while. Still it was quite enjoyable.
Plus, it was a good way to settle my nerves after that drive home!
For dinner I threw together a quick salad with these beautiful tender salad greens from the Finger Lakes. I simply tossed them with lime, sesame oil, sesame seeds, a dash of soy sauce, and shredded carrots.
For the main course I fried up some ginger and garlic in sesame oil then browned some chicken breast and tossed in the baby bok choi and cooked it down with a little sweet chili sauce. I served it all over white rice. Not exactly revolutionary but good enough.
Tonight was also time for Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
I'm a man now, Tanta!
