Goose Island 312 and Green Line

>> Sunday, March 27, 2011

Angela is not much of a beer drinker, and doesn't like anything too malty (tasting like chocolate or coffee) or too full of hops (has a bite or some bitterness). I say, the more hops the better; the darker the more satisfying, especially in the wintertime. But once Angela tasted Goose Island's 312 and Green Line, she loved the Green Line's crisp wheat ale taste and the fresh, mellow 312. These have become some of her favorite local brews.

Note: if you get this on tap, the tapper will probably be shaped like an old phone receiver. That's because "312" is the area code for central Chicago. About 25 years ago, that area code covered all of north-eastern Illinois.

The Green Line is the El train that goes from the city of Oak Park, west of Chicago, through the Loop, and then down the south side of Chicago to Cottage Grove Ave. It is the only Chicago line that is completely elevated.


Corn Souffle

>> Friday, March 11, 2011

This is a cheap, quick, and easy dinner to make when you're really busy. A box of corn mix, eggs, and cans of corn are almost all you need!


16 oz. can creamed corn
16 oz. can whole corn, drained
I package of corn muffin mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 beaten eggs, or 1/2 cup egg substitute
8 oz. sour cream


Preheat oven to 30 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Pour into a greased round baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, and the top is golden.
