[FHCx272] National Strawberry Cream Pie Day/National Drink Beer Day

TODAY IS NATIONAL STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE DAY AND NATIONAL DRINK BEER DAY!

Beer. Ben Franklin’s BFF. With all sorts of varieties: hoppy, malty, dark, light, etc., there’s plenty to choose from. If you’re really cool, then you get to Surly’s Brewer’s Table where you can enjoy a delicious tasting menu with beer pairings. You won’t think of beer the same way. (We did this onĀ SP‘s birthday and it was great!)

Today we celebrated by having this Sioux City Birch Beer. It’s not beer in the traditional sense, but it sure is in the title!

AK‘s endorsement: “It tastes like benadryl!”

Well if beer isn’t your thing, maybe dessert is?

SP‘s “contact” at Baker’s Square says that currently Strawberry Cream Pies are out because strawberries are “out of season.” This is coming from the same place that serves strawberry-rhubarb pie to octogenarians year-long. Trips to the grocery stores nearby were not fruitful (or creamful) either. So we had to make it at home!

AK mixed up some strawberry Jell-O and some vanilla pudding, and made this little pie-lets. Top with strawberry and cream and there you have it.
