Hmmm...Beer!

Saturday, April 5, 2008
Last night my Smart Man and I took my Smart Boy and his buddy to The Chinook Tavern for a belated birthday dinner.

It used to be the only thing my Smart Boy would eat was cheeseburgers with ketchup. Nothing else on them - just ketchup.

He still eats cheeseburgers with ketchup, but now that he's older, he's expanded his food selections a bit - hence his choice of the Chinook, which is primarily a German restaurant. The Boy has developed a taste for veal, a preference he shares with my Smart Man.

Veal will never be prepared in my kitchen, because I can't abide the idea of cooking or eating baby animals. So my Smart Boy and Smart Man order it whenever it's offered when we go out.

So the two boys had wiener schnitzel, my Smart Man had jaeger schnitzel, and I had grilled prawns wrapped in black forest ham.

But the best thing about the Chinook is the beer.

They have imported Paulaner Hefe Weizen on tap, which they correctly serve with a slice of lemon.

Hmmm...beer.

It's a good German Beer, and comes in light or dark.

Authoritative.
