For a starter I made this salad using Tropicana Green Leaf from Gotham Greens with red onion, green onion, avocado, and a vinaigrette made with lemon juice, whole grain mustard, Lyle's Golden Syrup, and olive oil.
For dinner I took some leftover vegetables from our lamb stew the other night and roasted them in the oven. I threw in some lightly seasoned fresh hake which looked beautiful at our local purveyor of fine seafood. I also tossed in some chicken apple sausages Jen had purchased at the butcher just in case I decided I wanted to use them in place of our missing Irish bangers.
I did not.
I also added a little beer that I'd been drinking to the pan just to add a little flavor.
The beer I'd been drinking was this Resin from Sixpoint Brewery. This was a phenomenal beer. I may have disliked this a couple of years ago but I found it to be an amazing dry hopped ale. At 9.1% alcohol by volume I was glad I'd shared a little with the fish I was cooking.
Normally Sixpoint packages their beers in 16 oz. cans but for this brew they opted for a slimmer 12 oz. can which reminds one of Red Bull. Thankfully the taste is much nicer than Red Bull. It had a wonderful floral hoppiness and, not surprisingly, a resin flavor as well.
It did not, unlike Red Bull, taste like someone had dissolved SweeTarts in diet soda.
Red Bull is disgusting.
