Girl: Mrs. Avery my mom won't let me wear my Guiness shoes anymore.
Me: Really? Why?
Girl: 'Cause it's to cold out now.
Friend: What are Guiness shoes?
Girl: My beer flip flops.
Me: I don't really think you should be wearing beer shoes to the fourth grade anyway.
Girl: I thought they said "genius" when I bought them...I can't read.
That is when I thought but your mom can.
As long as we are talking beer here is a recipe I tried out tonight. I got it from a high school classmate of mine. Everyone but one in the family liked it. You know what I say to that one...make yourself a dam PBJ then.
4 lbs picnic/shoulder roast
1 onion, coarsely chopped
1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
3 (15 ounce) cans black beans not drained
(16 ounce) jar salsa
2 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 can rotel with diced chilies
Juice of one lime
Chopped garlic, cilantro, crushed red pepper flakes and 2 beers *Budweiser's (use what you are comfortable with)
Frozen corn 2 cups? Whatever you want….
Dump it all in crock pot (except for corn and cilantro) cook 7 hours on low. Pull pork out, shred add it back add corn and cilantro cook 2 more hours. Serve over cilantro lime rice.
Rice is 2 cups long grain rice to 4 cups water. When rice is cooked add juice of one lime and a half cup of chopped cilantro. Mix.
