With the recent cold weather we have pretty much been eating soup haha. We made this last week, no recipe or name, used kale from the garden and smoked chicken sausage, almost like a minestrone. Going to make green chili tonight, have 1/2 bushel of roasted peppers in the freezer we need to use up.
I brewed a batch of beer over the weekend with Erik. The cold weather helped, we used snow to chill the wort (along with a wort chiller), took less than 10 minutes to get it from ~150F to 100F.
The Coopers got me the kit for my birthday, it is based off Bell's Two Hearted IPA, can't wait to try it! Erik said it is bubbling a lot = good sign.
