Erik's Birthday Week

This week is Erik's Birthday Week! His Birthday is on Saturday but I decided to do something different this year. Rather than give him his gifts on Saturday, I am giving him one gift a day. It's like Birthday Hanukkah!

On Monday, we went to the store and his gift was that he was able to pick out any beer that he wanted. He chose Dogfish Head Ale - Ta Henket. This is a cool beer because it is made with yeast from Egypt!

"Ta Henket is brewed with an ancient form of wheat and loaves of hearth-baked bread, and it's flavored with chamomile, dom-palm fruit and Middle Eastern herbs. To ferment this earthy ancient ale, Sam and friends traveled to Cairo, set out baited petri dishes and captured a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain."

The beer tasted really good! It was light and a little fruity. 

For dinner, we made pizza and we put a fried egg on top. We love pizza with an egg on it so we wanted to try it at home. It was pretty good!

On Tuesday, I gave him a gift card to Peet's Coffee. I'm excited to give him his gift tonight!
