PROST!!! FRUH KOLSCH is now in Canada. This light and I mean light tasting, wonderfully refreshing German beer is now available here in Canada and the launch in our town, was at WURST, a German restaurant and beer hall!!
This beer is clear light yellow with a billowy foam head. It tastes slightly sweet and is crisp and glorious. If you close your eyes you are transcended to the hills of Bavaria, Germany and you can hear the Sound of Music echoing through the hills…..scratch the record!! Sorry I got carried away.
What I did hear when we were at Wurst was the wonderfully lively songs of a Oompah band.
I went to this event with the lovely Courtney, my girlfriend’s daughter. This little gal enjoys her beer, she is usually a Guinness drinker, but loved the lightness of this beer for hot summer days!!
Wurst is a traditional beer hall downstairs and upstairs more of a restaurant. Downstairs you are seated at long benches and find it easy to join into conversations with people seated around you. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with this lovely couple. Nibbling, sipping and gabbing!! Also in the picture is some of the members of the Oompah Band. Fun times!!
Come and like their Facebook page and see more pictures of Fruh Kolsch and the launch here in Canada!!
April is a time we start to entertain again with Easter and maybe even a baby/wedding shower!! This lovely lemonade would refresh a large crowd for any of these events and it a pretty pink color for Spring!!
We all love this lemonade and it is a sure fire hit with my daughter and her friends. It can easily be made alcoholic with the addition of gin or vodka!! Click HERE for the recipe!!
What are your thoughts on canned fruit? Do you think they lose their nutritional value? In winter months when fresh produce is scarce or not very appealing, do you go to canned produce? Well you should!!
The canning process has actually been proven to increase nutrients, including antioxidants and Vitamin A. Canned peaches are also nearly four times higher in Vitamin C and 10 times higher in folate than fresh peaches. Think of how far your fruit has to travel before it reaches you. In a nice vacuum packed container makes more sense for our winter months.
Not only are they nutritious, canned California cling peaches are delicious and versatile and can be included in a number of recipes like this Protein-Packed Peach Smoothie!!
California cling peaches do not contain added sugar. They are packed in water or their own light juice.
This smoothie was so delicious, I had never tried the almond milk before either and really enjoyed. Our daughter and her friend loved them too.
