I’ve had the opportunity to sample two completely different types of French Onion Soup recently. The first offering is from Miller’s out in Willow Grove, PA. It’s different than any that I’ve had to date.
It had a sweet taste to it. I couldn’t decide if it was due to the type of bread they used in the center or not but it was good. I also wondered if the sweetness was from the use of Vidalia Onion instead of the standard onions such as Spanish. It was a different but tasty treat.
The second offering is Houlihan’s in Plymouth Meeting, PA.
This French Onion Soup was the classic style. Slightly salty with a beefy broth stock and of course…onions. It was topped with Provolone Cheese and pumpernickel bread in the center. I must admit I do prefer the Mozzarella or Provolone cheese to the when Swiss is used as the melted cheese on top. I’m kind of a FOS snob that way, lol.
Well there you have it. Two completely different Soups. I am still very much into this project!
I came across this picture of Willow and Mickie that is older. Mickie is miserable in her cast and Willow is…well…
She looks like she’s thinking…’Hey did you see what ‘ole Genius did?’
Those crazy dawggies!
Okay at least that’s what I’m getting from the story in Philadelphia about the Beer Week party wanting to join forces with the Comic-Con weekend. They share a weekend every year and wouldn’t it be awesome and fun if they just merged the two events into one big event? Um no…no it wouldn’t.
First off as a self-declared Geek I’m not a big drinker. Don’t get me wrong I appreciated a good beer. I love beer in fact but what I don’t like is getting drunk and having a hangover. There is no fun in that for me.
What I envision from the merge is a bunch of Drunken A-holes picking on my fellow Geeks who dress up in costume for a good time at the Con. I love these people and I love that they get dressed up and in some cases take a bus or a train to the event and ride out the stares and the snickers so that they can just cut loose Comic-Con style with their peeps! Lets add drunken fools into a mixture of my people. You know, because drunks are always sweet in demeanor and never are mean or mean-spirited while under the influence of their drink or their drunken peers.
This too me is a recipe for disaster. The one’s pushing this merger aren’t the Comic-Con people it is the Beer Week group. They would like to increase their numbers using the people who attended the Comic-Con.
“It would be a lot of fun,” says Philly Beer Week Executive Director Don Russell, who has his own alter ego — a local beer superhero known as Joe Sixpack. “I think we could really come up with some really killer beer-drinking event with comic book fans.”
Seriously I’m supposed to just take Don Russell’s word he dresses up as Joe six-pack (He doesn’t actually say anything about dressing up in the article just that he has an alter ego.)? I have dressed up in a Batman Costume for all the world to see. I’m proud of my outfit. My hood is a little too big but I can work with it. So Don here’s my picture…where is yours????
To conclude I dress up like superheros, play with action figures, collect comic books and live the dream all without doing a pub crawl. BOOM!
Bean and I were driving thru Media when the following exchange took place…
“This is a cute little town.” ~ Me
“We can’t live here there’s no parking.” ~ Bean
“Wait! We could totally live here there’s a Primos.” ~ Bean
This is so true because Primos makes those tasty hoagies Bean likes and those tasty wraps I like so I know that where ever we move there will be tasty treats
I love to people watch. Sometimes I people photograph when I find people who stand out above the rest. Here are the people of Longwood Gardens.
