Talking with My Mouth Full

   Get your mind out of the gutter. This is all quotes about food and life meet photos of local joints and homemade dishes.

Not all chemicals are bad.  Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer.  ~Dave Barry

Every year I go to Park City, head right for Wasatch Brewpub on Main Street, grab a stool at the bar and order a Nitro Cream Ale. Utah beer might be lower ABV than what we drink back east… and out west… but that just means that as a lightweight I can enjoy a whole pint and not fall off my barstool. Win.

This time I went for 5oz glasses of Nitro Cream and a fruity Apricot hefe. Then we had the Jalapeno Cream Ale- it has a nice bite to it, which I imagine is even better with nachos. Or a burger. Or pretty much anything, really.

Can’t wait to go back.

Red meat is not bad for you.  Now blue-green meat, that’s bad for you!  ~Tommy Smothers

I’ve been feeling a little rundown and tired lately and I haven’t been getting enough exercise. Part of it might be the food I eat- lots of sodium-rich soups, preserved meats and veggies, and sweets. It’s winter and it’s easy to curl up with mac’n’cheese or a chocolate bar.

So to amp up my energy and feel a bit healthier, I’m toying with the idea of becoming a vegetarian. Or a pescetarian, because giving up poultry for fish and shellfish- the same chunky mouth feel, if not the flavor- would be easy. Everything “tastes like chicken”, right? Ham has never been a big fave. Pork I can live without. Bacon? Sure I’ll miss it, but I will survive (hey hey). The hard one for me is red meat- every once in awhile I get this craving for a good steak, but more often for a really good burger. With a really good beer.

Thunder Burger & Bar’s Born to be Wild is a musky, rich, slightly bitter chunk of ground boar burger topped with Havarti, pineapple salsa, and remoulade. It’s perfect with Avery White Rascal, a Belgian wheat (5.6% ABV).

I didn’t know it at the time, but it was a perfect last burger.
