Yesterday was fun. Went to a beer making class at the Philadelphia Brewery (formerly the Yards brewery, now with new name and new recipes). We did a tour of the building, and got a brief history of the brewery. Not too much detail into the split. Since none of the beers in progress were bottled or ready to drink, we were instead offered some homebrew from the guy that owns a homebrew store in South Philly. At the meetup, we talked to a couple from Springfield, and then I saw an old friend from when I went to Temple (in 1992). I haden't seen him in years and years. He looked a lot the same (I don't). His girlfriend was there, and she seemed nice. Overall, the even was fun. Then Aaron and I went to my aunt's house (about a mile away), and had soup. It was okay, nice to see her again. I really need to visit more often.

Then we ventured home, attacked the supermarket. I got 10 packs of Hamburger Helper for $10. I figured, hell, I've never tried the stuff. I made some when I got home. Debating if I'll make more.. it's _really_ salty, and not particularly good. Granted there are a lot of flavors to try.. Maybe this wont' be a $10 box of hamburger helper (but maybe it will). I'm also making a fake Quiche - http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Easy-Quiche/Detail.aspx I say "fake" since you don't really make a crust for it. In theory, the crust will find its way to the bottom, and the eggy stuff to the top. We shall see, but the comments lead me to believe it's not really quiche like.

I'm also thinking I need more LJ userpics.

Sparks. He was Nick's friend from Drexel. I believe he continued his studies at Temple, graduated, and has done web design ever since. He went to Ithica, NY for a while (doing web design) and has been back in Philly for the last 5 years doing web apps for Jefferson (and about 20-30 websites). I swear, he looks almost exactly the same (put on a little bit of weight, but he was really thin when we were in college, so now he's more "normal" with a slight belly). But, hell, he's 34-35, so that's to be expected anyhows.

Could add more pasta to the hamburger helper, thin out the salt per portion...

I'm trying to think of ANYTHING that could make hamburger helper approachable...

Zomg? Never EVER had hamburger helper? Ever? Obviously your parents were uberfunctional....hamburger helper is what latchkey kid/foodstamp family memories are made of!

I mean shit, I think I still have a chunk of teriyaki flavor meal from 1988 in my lower intestine somewhere.

Along with debris from grilled gubbment cheese sammiches, but I digress...

My parents were hippies. Basically only ate red meat if we went out (wasn't in the house), and don't think I ate any pork stuff till I was much older. Good chunk of veggie meals, and we had stuff like fish sticks, occasional chicken dishes.
