Seasonal Beers [Nov. 21st, 2005|07:13 pm]
I was kinda sad about not getting to drink my fill of one of my favorite seasonal beers this year,
So I bought a case of it that is sitting in a closet at my mother-in-law's house where no one will drink it. My plan was, after the baby comes, I will drink it.
It might not taste so good without the holiday ambience, but I didn't think of that when I bought it.

Maybe I will bust out the case for my family at Thanksgiving, and save myself a 6-pack for after the baby comes.

I should also grab myself a 4-pack of Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome Ale. I think that is my very very favorite.

Oh man, I missed beer SO bad when I was pregnant. I was constantly making D. order a beer when we were out so I could have *one sip*.

you know, missing out on the red wine has been much harder for me. especially when i am having dinner with friends. i always want to smell it.
folks also get a little self conscious or something when i am around and they want to order drinks. they might look at me like a deer in headlights and say "oh!" and I say "go ahead! I will enjoy you enjoying for me!"

Yep, lots of pumpkin. I tried a bottle at a friend's house. At first I was going to abandon it after the first experimental sip, but it grew on me. It's better with food (I had an oatmeal cookie) than straight.

Good choices, both! I'll keep you around as a drinkin' buddy after the baby ;-) Have you tried the Sam Adams Summer brew? Crisp, tasty and lemony! (is lemony a word?)

hey, you made me think

So post birth are you breastfeeding? I entend to, and I want to know is their some magick timing for expressing off some tainted/alcohol filled milk? Someone has to know, the answer. Such as if I drink at 9pm Friday my milk for X time Saturday would be boozy so it would be slightly better to express it and throw it out than feed to Caleb. And oh dear what about other recreational indulgences?

We have bottles of champagne wasting away in the fridge. I have sipped wine and it has a 38% chance of staying down. I am really missing Ciders right now. I love all those fun ones you can get now.....
