Hard Rock Grill

Tonight was a very special night indeed. Why? Because a few months back we entered a contest to win a dinner with Scott, the drummer from
Badfish and tonight we got to cash in!


Of course he had quite a bit of rock star business to attend to like talking on his cell phone about his upcoming gigs but still it was an honor just to cook for him.

Grilled Chicken with Vidalia Onion and Cilantro, Asparagus, and Rice

I probably should have made a little more effort than I did but I already had a chicken marinating in the fridge so I decided that I would grill it up. It was marinating in a Vidalia onion and cilantro dressing before I grilled it up along with some asparagus and some reheated leftover rice from Indian takeout the other night. It turned out pretty good for such a low budget meal. Next time I have a famous star of Rock & Roll over I should probably make something a little fancier.

Maybe I was just too nervous to make anything more complicated.

Sixpoint Apollo

It was a beautiful evening so we enjoyed dinner outside. For drinks I poured this Apollo from Sixpoint, their new summer release. It was really good, better than I'd expected, and not quite like anything I've had from Sixpoint in the past.

It's not summer yet but it sure was a lovely evening. Maybe it was having my pregnant wife there with me. Maybe it was the beer. Maybe it was the presence of rock and roll royalty. At any rate it was a night that I will remember for a long, long time.

Go Rangers!
