I've got Miller Lite. What do I do with it?

We had guests over for Thanksgiving that I knew were lite beer drinkers because that's all they ever served at their houses. So I bought a 6 pack of Miller Lite for them. No one drank it. Everyone hit on my Summit Extra Pale Ale and Bell's Lager of the Lakes stock and even grabbed some of my Surly Furious. I encouraged my wife to try it the other night hoping maybe she would lay off my good stuff and her comment was it tasted flat. So I tried one. No, it was just light beer. So now we have four left. What the heck do we do with it? ;)

        1. I feel your pain, Mr. Food. Man, those 'Fins stink this year.

          What about some good ol' beer-battered onion rings? Traditional, but sooo good hot out of the fryer. Add a little cumin and lemon pepper and voila.

        2. Use it to deglaze for a sauce or stew.

          1. I usually use beer in my Chili if it gets to thick or to deglaze after browning the meat. Yuor hoppy preferances would be too strong for that so a lite beer is perfect.
