El Chaupuin Colorado by 5 Rabbit Brewery. A gosé made with crickets and cochineal. So good.

Yes, I drank a beer made with bugs. Yes, it was beautiful. Yes, it tasted great. I would like more, please.

Honey. Goat cheese. Mushrooms. Toast. A delightful wit beer.

I went to an event that paired food with beer. Of course. BUT! Also with performance art. Mostly comedy. It was a fun, fun time.

Edible flowers in a light cocktail.

I finally got to try a cocktail that really involved edible flowers. It was fantastic.

Which made me all the sadder to realize I will not be growing these guys or any other edible flowers this year. Time got away from me, and I didn’t get my plot planted before we left for a long trip. Someone else will be using it this year, though I’ll still be part of the community around the garden.

Communal eating at The Rice Table pop-up.

I tried Indonesian food for the first time. I really enjoyed it. Though some of it was “blew my face off” spicy.

I got sick, but I didn’t take pictures of that. I think that’s really for the best.

Monday will be my five year anniversary of blogging. Please join me then for a big giveaway.
