Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

How cute are these Leprechaun Hat and 3-Leaf Clover cupcakes?? Hope you all had/are still having a great St. Patty’s Day!! The hubby and I opted to stay home, as going out can get expensive, not to mention WAY too busy…amirite?? We had made corned beef brisket over night yesterday, so we had that for dinner, along with some Irish-style beer…yum!!

I say Irish-style, because we tried out a micro brewed beer, from a brewery here in Ontario (Canada) called Beau’s. I’ve got to say, that I loved it. It may be because it was a red ale, and had some sweet notes to it. We’ll definitely try it again!!

Cheers Everyone 🙂

Maple Porter…Seems I’m Not a Fan…Boo.

A few nights ago, we had ordered pizza, because hey…a girl needs to feed her pizza craving!! And what goes better with pizza, then beer, am I right?! 😀 While at the LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario), we saw this Nickel Brook Maple Porter. Since the Pumpkin beer we had in the fall was pretty yummy, I was expecting the same from this one. Not so much 😦 First off, a porter for me, is too strong. And there was no trace of maple flavour. I was sad. And lesson learned. But, onward and upward with our quest to find yummy tasting flavoured beers!!

Bon Appetit Everyone 🙂

Tonight’s Menu…Sushi and Flavoured Beer!!

We saw this pumpkin spice beer at the LCBO and had to try it. It was really good!! A slightly darker amber ale, with the yummy goodness of pumpkin and spice. A great accompaniment to any meal…especially for Fall 🙂

We also came across this Fruli Strawberry Beer, and decided to give it a try as well. And it doesn’t disappoint – with its fruity berry taste. This would be a great beer to have in the summer, perfectly chilled 🙂

We chased the beer down with some yummy sushi…salmon is my favourite…I could eat sushi anytime…omnomnom!!

Bon Appetit Everyone 🙂
