On to other news… I picked up a 6 pack of these today:




It’s a Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale by Blue Moon! I am sipping on one now and it’s really good! Never tasted anything quite like it! But, I feel very fall-ish drinking it!! Brown Sugar Rubbed Salmon is on the menu tonight so I better get cracking!! Have a great night :)
