To celebrate the season I got some surprisingly good asaparagus from California as we probably won't have much around here for a while. I made this pizza topped with tomato, mozzarella, ricotta, and sliced ham from the freezer which is still leftover from Christmas and still quite delicious.
I took some of the tomato, ricotta, and asparagus and pureed it up for the Wombats mixed with a little multigrain cereal. The end result tasted much more like pizza than I would have expected. This may have been the closest that the Wombats have come to having the same thing for dinner that we had.
The verdict was a positive one. They seemed to like it quite a bit. This was fitting because we liked the pizza quite a bit Of course by the time we are able to eat any meal we generally enjoy it for the sheer fact that we are hungry as hell.
For beer we had this Double Agent IPL from Samuel Adams. I've been wanting to try this one for a while as it is a new style of beer. They took a lot of the classic India Pale Ale hops and made what they are calling an India Pale Lager as a result using the lagering method rather than ale yeast. This beer ended up being quite good and while a lot of the traditional IPA elements are there it does have a very different characteristic to it. If I had been served this blind I don't think I'd have been able to put my finger on why it seemed like an IPA but slightly different.
I applaud Sam Adams for trying something new with this one. It was tasty and very easy to drink.
After dinner in order to entertain the Wombats we gave them their sippy cups.
Yeah, they still haven't quite figured them out yet.
