1. I went back to the Millrace to take pictures (and look for my eyeglasses -- a lost cause). The environment was foggy and gray and the water was black and gray. I enjoyed, as best I could, setting the colors along the shore against the dark backdrop of the water.
2. I tried two new beers today. First, at Sixteen Tons, a half pint of Gilgamesh's Chocolate Mint Stout, a pleasant beer, but not one I'd eagerly return to, but would gladly accept if offered to me. After grocery shopping, I tried a half pint of Deschutes The Stoic at the Supreme Bean. A half pint was all I would want. It's a strong ale and full of more different flavors than I can describe. For me, it was kind of like bleu cheese: I love bleu cheese, but I'd never sit and eat a bunch of it at one sitting. Same with The Stoic: interesting, unique, flavorful, strong, and something I would only drink in small doses.
3. I thought I fixed a pretty good dinner tonight: I baked five chicken drumsticks and, in the meantime, I fried sweet onion and mushrooms, combined last night's leftover basmati rice and make a salad that the Deke dressed. Add a baguette and it was a good meal.
