Adventures in Burgers, Dogs and Beah(s)

I hesitated to post this, as most gun bloggers who post about food post about fine food:  seafood, chili, gourmand cuisine.  Think Brigid, and many others.

I like to cook, and am not half bad at it – traditional American fare:  lasagna, deep-dish pizza, steak, hamburgers, hot dogs.  Baking.  Some sugar-free stuff.  But, with my various infirmities, standing and cooking usually isn’t a pleasant experience.  (I need to eat more salads, anyway).

So, I’ve taken to finding foods I like near my new digs.  Mexican food, bar & grills, pizza.  Usually accompanied by alcohol (or diet soda 🙂 ).  Much depends on how close it is to ‘payday’.

We used to frequent a pizza place near my old house.  Our favorite waitress appeared to be a recovering tweaker from Boston – always pronounced beer as beah, so we adopted that.  For fun.  (Yes. sarcasm and mockery are our stock in trade!)

Of late we (my roommate and I) have found a couple new places.  One had excellent burgers and fries – at steak prices, and 52 craft beers available.  We took immediately to Mr. Pineapple Ale, then found out the mr pcraft beer was $7.00/pint!

As much as we liked the food, we went on the hunt to find Mr. Pineapple, and found it at another place we have been known to frequent.  For $4.50/pint!  Have three beers and you’re saving money!  (see what I did there?)

The problem is, the food at the cheaper beer place, while good, is not as good (or as costly) as the expensive beer place.  They do have 1/4 pound BACON-WRAPPED hot dogs, though!

A friend recently gifted me with a fine single-malt Scotch.  Perhaps I should just stay home with that.Scotch & chocolate

I’m certain my doctor would agree.

Probably without the dark chocolate, though…

FTC – San Tan Brewery gives me nothing.  Now go away!

  1. Careful, Guffaw – you’re developing expensive tastes. :^) But you knew that. I’m right there with you, though – good food is hard to find, unless one prepares his own.

  2. Local “institution” is a Krautburger place. Hard to find; in the middle of the block with minimal signage. Survives on word of mouth and draws people from everywhere. No alcohol and mainly open around lunch. Always crowded. Basic burger is around $4. Tastes good, but I can make better piroshkis. Much better than the usual fast food and our two dozen Mexican restaurants all using the same recipes.

  3. Forget gourmet – you’ve got bacon wrapped hot dogs and beer.

    The crock pot meal last night was a hit but tonight it was just barbecued burgers with grilled onions, provolone, and grilled corn on the cob and a bottle of cheap red wine drunk on the porch with a friend. Not a bad way to spend the evening (it’s cooler on the porch than in the house right now but Captain A.C. will be here Monday with the replacement part.)
