Bobo's Mountain Sugar Goes Camping

Bobo's Mountain Sugar

As you may or may not know Maple syrup holds a special place in my heart.  I've said it before, but
Bobo's Mountain Sugar is top level when it comes to the syrup making game.  Light, bold, fragrant, sticky, delicious, addicting...yep, it's all of those things.So when it came time to pack the camping gear this year, Bobo's came along and was a hit.    It pairs well with apple and banana pancakes.  Check out their Tumblr for more info.

Fourth of July on the Water

Situated in a small corner of the world is a lake that I used to call home.  Every now and then I get to visit and explore.  Somehow, in the past 10 years, this was the first time I can recall watching fireworks from the middle of the lake bobbing up and down on a boat.  Pictures could never do it justice.  I hope you had a Happy Fourth of July!

A cool Canadian publication called Day & Nite Magazine featured one of my photos in their premier issue.  Check it out here in full.  It's from a Sunday afternoon post (here) about making the perfect Old Fashioned. Yummy!

Beer Review (32): Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company Trauger Pilsner

Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company Trauger Pilsner

Brewery: Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company Beer: German Pilsner | Beer Advocate Score: 84 Abv: 4.8%

It's absolutely true that World Cup Soccer combined with any beer is a recipe for a great afternoon.  It’s a theory I proved four years ago and carried over into this year’s competition.  So when I found myself thirsty and in center city this weekend I found it only natural to seek out three things: A/C, TV, and an adult beverage.  Neshaminy Creek doesn't usually rank too high on my list of local (Pennsylvania) breweries since having a lackluster IPA last year, but I thought to give them another go.  The traditional German Pilsner was smooth, crisp, fruity and memorable.

Lakes, Wildflowers, and Weekends Away...

As it turns out, Muffin is a water-loving dog.  We made bouquets of wildflowers, rode kayaks around the lake, explored the water, ate great food and relished in the sunshine all weekend long.  It's a grand summer.
