Another semester ends

If you're reading this around 7 p.m. EST, I'm at the Biergarden on High Street in Portsmouth, overdosing on an odd version of potato soup and helping to run a local version of geek trivia. It's part of what is becoming a tradition in that the last (unofficial) day of class is held at the Biergarden.

I'm addicted to the potato soup, which I'm not supposed to have due to its content. I don't have the recipe for it (hope to though) but it contains what looks like small bits of pot roast, potatoe slices, and spaetzle in a clear beef broth. Occasionally, another veggie may make a cameo appearance but the base recipe is delicious. Anything with spatzle can't be all that bad, right?

If you can find someone who makes good spatzle, heifering, and dumpfnodle hire 'em, marry 'em, or otherwise move in with them. Same goes for lumpia and pansit. And before you food vacuums at 757 ask, mine's only passable so you ain't moving in with me.

Apologies for the spelling.
