One day last week while we got some much needed rain, Felix and I worked on coloring some paper to wrap a package for our uncle in.
We enjoyed watching the rain fall.
and later after the rain stopped, Felix had his first pretzel (or bits of it.)
while Andrew and I enjoyed sampling some beer for our first visit to Liberty Street Brewing Company.
Last night we went to Motor City Brewing Works for some tasty Pizza and a beer (we both had the delicious Motor City Pale Ale). F had a fun time playing out front.
We’re all hoping for some sun this holiday weekend!
What do you do when you have a lot of beer left in the post-party keg? Why, you fill up all of your glass jars and share it with friends of course!
As I was finishing some of the party left overs today, I realized that I didn’t write much about the food aspect of Felix’ party. I wanted to mention a few things we had though, because it is important to us to support our local businesses as much as we can and I thought it would be nice to spread the love.
The above mentioned beer was the crowd pleasing Ghetto Blaster from Motor City Brewing Works. There was a giant salad made with lettuce from my parents garden and like I mentioned Monday, my sister made the fabulous cakes.
We made pulled pork for our main entree using lots of pork from John Henry’s. We have been buying meat and eggs from their booth at our farmers market each week, but for this order they delivered it right to our home! Talk about customer service! The pulled pork was piled onto delicious fresh baked rolls from La Gloria Bakery in Mexican Town (Southwest Detroit). (Oh, and we had some vegetarian BBQ too, made from lentils.)
Sassy Jones is the sauce that flavored our BBQ. Although not local to us, my Uncle from Arkansas brought it as a gift on his last visit up here. The label is way too fun not to share.
It’s good on lentils too…
