This week’s Narragansett Recipe

I really like Narragansett Beer, I find it pleasant to drink (when in bottles), cheap, and it’s somewhat local. I also really like supporting farmer’s markets, so, I’m going to bring you a recipe a week created with Narragansett and some local produce. Sound good? Good.

This week’s I bring you something pretty simple but incredibly tasty:

Asparagus with ‘Gansett and Sage LittleNecks

– 1 Bunch of Asparagus (I used asparagus from Four Town Farm – much much better than what you’d get at the supermarket)
– 1 lb of Little Neck Clams (Mine were from Matunuck Oyster – awesome)
– 1/2 bottle of Narragansett Lager (or any local lager)
– 1 teaspoon of Dried Sage – Fresh would be better
– 1 clove of garlic
– 1 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil

Mix Oil with thinly sliced garlic on medium heath add Asparagus. Saute on medium for about 10 minutes.

Put Little Necks in Large pot, add 1/2 bottle of Narragansett + Sage let boil on high heat, cook for about 5 minutes, until they open a little bit.

Plate,Eat and Enjoy. (Drink the rest of the beer with the meal)

I am FINALLY done with this baby. It took me over a month to knit, and I was pretty committed to it. I even kept trying to bring it to Stitch and Bitch, where i would knit a row or two, screw it up, and then have to figure out how to fix it for the rest of the SnB session. I have to say, I really love the colors in the yarn and the way it looks after being lightly spritzed with a waterbottle and blocked on a towel out of reach of my kitty who was puking up easter grass all night.

uglyagnes trivia: quiche lorraine is my fave b52s song

I like a good cover band, and lately there has been some buzz about B-Hive, a local B52s cover band. I got a chance to see them last night at a Providence RollerDerby event, and they were dynamite!

Providence has a great b52s cover band

At the end of May i’ll be seeing the B52s play at the true colors tour in Boston, and i have a feeling that B-Hive might be better than the real thing!

katie lee cookie mania

We listen to Howard Stern almost exclusively in the car these days. Recently he had Katie Lee Joel in (she’s a friend of his fiance) and she made these cookies from her badly named-new book, The Comfort Table. There are mixed reviews on this book, but she brought in some of her cookies to the studio, which prompted my roommate to make some. Luckily, the recipe is available for free here.

While MJP was the chef, I will willing to taste test them. And i can say, i give them an A-. Had I just tried the raw cookie dough, and fresh out of the oven cookies, it would be a solid A. But this morning I had one for breakfast and they are a little less OMGWTFSOGOOD, but still,OMGSOGOOD.

hi: I’ve got stuff to say

I really do. But i’ve been lazy. I’ll post more, i promise.

Anyway, I have TMZ Addiction, and sometimes it pays off, like this morning when I saw this “Hollywood Muppets” photo gallery.Buscemi
