I have no kids myself, but I’ve spent a fair amount of weekends with family & friends who do, and I’m always amazed to see how quickly the adults are to down their kids’ leftover meals. Who am I to judge? Waste not, want not, right? And as it is often time for Mommy and Daddy to suck back on a drink or two to settle the nerves, why should they let that food & alcohol pairing go to waste? If multiple lists can be made for wine and fancy foods, whose to say that adults shouldn’t have their own guide for beer which compliments their kids’ uneaten grub? Dammit, parents are people too!!
