Already planning on cheeseburgers, French fries, and root beer floats.

Nope, no cooking tonight! Our wonderful house guests left today and I'm taking the night off. We will be enjoying pizza from our local pizza place

Wow, GG, it seems like you just told us that they arrived. I bet the week's visit flew by even faster for you.


We'll be having bratwurst steamed in beer (not root beer, though ) that Himself will finish off on the grill. We'll use them for brat-and-kraut sandwiches, along with fresh made applesauce, dill pickles, pickled beets, and green beans. If we're going to eat by 8, I'd better get going. Been busy goofing off with laundry and dishes and cleaning today...

I haven't had a root beer float in at least a half a century. There's a local company that makes some really good sodas (or whatever you call them where you're at), and their root beer is exceptional. Way, way better than the big national brands.

Dinner tonight was grilled B/S chicken thighs in a soy balsamic marinade, leftover potato salad and cole slaw.

We have a drink over here called Dandelion & Burdock (made from the roots of both) which has been made since the Middle Ages when it was a sort of alcoholic beer - disgusting is a mild way to describe the taste (I only had it once - as a polite child I drank the whole glass and promptly threw up all over the neighbour's lawn). Not the same as Root Beer but probably was a fore-runner of it - perhaps the Pilgrim Fathers couldn't find dandelions and burdocks.
