  1. Craft Beers

    I haven't bought a growler in a long time, but isn't that also about twice the typical price for the empty bottles? Sounds like they don't have a good business plan.

    I was up in old forge last weekend and ordered the Saranac Blueberry Blond. I was totally clueless, thinking i was ordering a blonde ale, totally missing the blueberry part of the name. Now, I'll admit,I'm a bit of a purist about beer. Most of the times i find beer with added flavors might taste good for a sip or two, but i can't finish a whole glass. Because of this i had never tried the Horsehead blueberry ale. I have to say,i really got into the Saranac version. A nice blueberry nose, but still a clean beer flavor.

    I've had some of their brews a few years ago when someone brought a few growlers. It was all pretty bad, like a home brewer who didn't know how to scale up. Sounds like they might have improved since then. Thanks for the update.
  4. Pot Luck Ideas

    Went to a put luck last night, we took two dishes. Our usual home made sheet cheese pizzas and a tomato/cucumber salad with Italian dressing and chunks of sharp cheese. As for other dishes... There were two type of meatballs, one in standard sauce and the other tasted like the recipe above. A green bean casserole, potato salad, coleslaw, chili, shrimp ring, baked ziti, plus assorted desserts. The usual fare.

    What's that? Just the sound of it is making my mouth water.

    We go to the occasional pot luck, or dish to pass, dinner. Looking for some new ideas. Getting tired of taking the standards like Mac and Cheese, baked ziti or five bean salad. What are your favorites?
  7. Making Fried Rice

    Looks delicious! Thanks for the post, it reminds me I haven't made this in a while. Fried rice is traditionally a way to use up leftovers, and in Chinese kitchens left over cooked rice is always available in quantity. Eggs are a non-perishable protein source which is why they are a standard part of the recipe. All of the other ingredients are what you have on hand to be used up. I've used cauliflower, greens, peppers, or whatever other lonely (possibly about to go bad) piece of vegetable I find in the drawer. I love your idea of using left over pork chops, great way to turn not enough meat for a family into a family meal. The narrator was terribly pretentious. His saying not to use left over rice is BS, cold rice is the secret and the left overs from the night before work perfectly fine. While a restaurant might need to follow a recipe to ensure consistency, home cooks can do whatever pleases their pallets and makes life easy. This should be in everyone's repertoire, don't let lack of formal ingredients scare you off.

    Diversion Brewering in Chemung, one of the best in the area. We love the beer and the atmosphere, feels like a private party, but one that will let me in. The wife loves the Pilsberry, I like most of the other types, the East Cost Roast is my favorite. Saturdays they have live music and a food truck. They also have "crowlers" from an on demand canning machine for those who are not a fan of growlers.
