Beer + Chocolate = ????

New Belgium Brewing is teaming with Ben & Jerry's to create Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ale.  The proceeds from the sales of this clever creation go to Protect Our Winters, a climate change awareness group.  I love to the cause, I love beer, I love chocolate.  But Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ale?  :naughty:

Just sayin....

that does not sound good. One on the worst beers I've ever tried is:

Not a beer person in general, but I did try cheese made with beer once (& it was quite tasty). Plus I tried Guinness-flavored potato chips from England, & they were really good.

New Belgium hasn't made a beer I hate yet. So there's that.

What about chocolate and peanut butter? My friends and I found this last weekend. I thought the name was funny, but haven't gotten the courage to try it yet. It's either going to be amazing or God-awful. I'm not really a beer person, either...image.jpeg

I don't know about this specific beer, but my dad really has really liked the varieties of Evil Genius that he's tried.

I have to dig around to find it, but Mr. Spoon bought a dark chocolate ale this spring.  It was because he had chili made with it that was divine.  His chili with it was even better.

So, at least from a cooking standpoint, the one I am aware of was outstanding!

Chocolate should not be adulterated by beer.  End of story.

      There are some versions of the bible that clean up the story of Jacob and Joseph, so that the reader is missing something. Joseph wasn't the arbitrary favorite. He was one of the only biological children of Jacob and Rachel. His brothers who plotted against him were all half brothers. Jacob wanted to marry Rachel, but was tricked into marrying her older sister Leah. The Lord made Leah very fertile to make up for it. Rachel was almost barren until Joseph. (In the meantime, Rachel and Leah both sent their maid servants to have children by Jacob.) Jacob and Rachel were eventually able to have 2 biological children: Joseph and later, Benjamin. Benjamin was too young and not apart of selling Joseph into Egypt. Some versions clean up the story to just say that Rachel and Leah are the bio-moms of all the kids and Joseph just happens to be the favorite, but this is incorrect. 

      Jacob's father-in-law arguably started the problem when he tricked Jacob into marrying the wrong sister. 

      They really don't do Biblical marriage like they used to.

      I think the best part of Gary's retelling is struggling to remember any of the names or relationships, that's what people look for in a preacher. Although I can see all the women in the story going through all the kids names until they hit the right one!

      Not exactly real life, but there's a woman I followed off/on for a long time on-line. She has always admired fundies like the ones we follow here. She was single for a while, but in her late 20s/ early 30s she met a widower with slightly larger than average family. He's fundie and now she's a fundie homeschooling stepmother. They also had a baby together. Now she's set up an account to be social-media homeschooling Quiverfull SAHM.  Because of the stepkids, they have biggish family (not Duggar big, but bigger than average.) She seemed like a sweet person, but this seems like a risky move for many reasons.

      Wow! That’s a massive house. They certainly don’t seem like they want a herd of children - I’d guess one or two more, if any. I wonder what they’ll do with all that space? 

      Why can't I get that kind of deal?! I have a career  🤣 ... and ethics, a conscious, morals, work ethic... that tracks 🤨

      That's why I was wondering about the BR/BA distribution. I haven't seen that posted, but I haven't looked at the Reddit thread for several hours.

      It's 4600 sf. More than double what they had before.
