Nobody likes a...

Witness the power of the mini burgers at Ron's Restaurant*. So delicious, even Helene -- GOM alumna and self-proclaimed vegetarian -- couldn't resist.

This Week's Beers

Picked up a couple of new beers from Green's today - Rogue's Morimoto Soba Ale, which, as expected, was quite buckwheaty, and Pinkus Organic Hefeweizen, which is my new favorite wheat. Start stocking up on this for summer.

A pound of Burgers' Pepper Country Bacon showed up at the office, and was immediately cooked & devoured. The Grateful Palate describes it as well as I can - "sweet, chewy, tantalizing interplay of pepper with sugar-cured sweetness. Great with scrambled eggs." Indeed.
