Christamas Caroling, The Legend of the Beer Wagon Revisited, and Random Weekend Eats
My burger had garlic pickles, Provolone cheese, thick-cut bacon, and grilled red onions. It was fantastic.
I had told Elizabeth that story before but I think she thought I was joking, just making up the name of the product. But sure enough, we saw it at Fresh & Easy on Saturday afternoon.
I got pastrami instead of corned beef, and layered it on top of a piece of Swiss cheese on an egg roll wrapper. I put some sauerkraut on top of that, rolled up the wrappers, and fried them for a couple minutes. Elizabeth mixed up a sour cream/mustard concoction and I made a basic Russian dressing.
They were very tasty.
One morning in 2002, Zach and I were looking at ads in the paper, and we came across one for Harbor Freight Tools featuring a wagon for a very low price. We decided it would make a great wagon for the Caroling party. That first year, we just dumped ice in the wagon and filled it with beers. The next year it had a thermos of cider attached to the back. In the years since, it has constantly been renovated, sometimes in ways that don't even make sense. Like the Winchester Mystery House for drunks.
It was still good.
I may not eat again until next weekend.
