I know I’m late but,
Happy New Year!
I had a wonderful new years weekend. New Years Eve was spent at Tremont Tap House…in Tremont:
Where I had a five course meal…
and a feather on my head!
I really need to sport that more often. Anyway, back to food!
First course: Mixed Greens Salad; First beer taster: Dogfish Head Immort Ale:
I normally don’t like fruit IN things, but the salad was very good.
Second course: Roasted Squash Soup; Second beer: Midas Touch:
Soup was okay, too much warm spice for my taste. I have been very anxious to try Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch, the recipe is the actual oldest-known fermented beverage in the world. Was discovered inside King Midas’ tomb! How crazy is that? It was really good.
Third course: Crispy Sweet Tea Brined Pork Shoulder; Third beer: Sah’Tea:
HOLY PORK! Freakin’ amazing.
Fourth course: Duck Confit Enchilada; Fourth beer: Theobroma:
I’ve never had duck before and I don’t know why – delicious! Buttery and sweet with some spice from julienned jalapeno. Perfection.
Fifth course: Berry Crisp; Fifth beer taster: Black and Blue:
Again, I do not care for any sorts of cooked fruit/berries. Me no likey (plus I was stuffed).
Then it struck midnight and I was overwhelmed with birthday wishes. Thank you, everyone!
I may have gotten the best birthday present ever…
Thanks friends! For all the lies and planning, I really appreciate it : ))
What’s a party without Michael Jackson?
