beer beer and more beer :)
I was poking through a beer newspaper and came across a beer baked beans recipe , tres simple, and it used just a little beer. I was like "I have to open a beer in the morning, dump some of it into the crock pot, what do I do with the rest???". I dunno, as a NOT alcoholic, the smell of beer or anything like that is a nauseating smell in the morning, you know? 5 pm is a different matter...
anyway, as a thrifty guy, I did not want the leftover beer to go to waste and thought "I have heard of beer bread" and the wife tells me of begging her old roomies' boyfriend for a spare can of Bud to make beer bread with...and HO BOY, did this work out beautifully.... I mean, baked beans is the YIN and the bread of the YANG of a nice meal, right? (along with cucumber salad and a cold beer at dinner--I cooked with the cheap stuff, saving the good stuff to drink....next time I wanna use the good stuff to cook with! MORE FLAVOR I bet....)
It is hard to believe how easy and tasty this bread is, I wanna try more recipes like it!
(note--I did not have the exact ingredients for the beans and I improvised a little which was FINE...but with the bread I did the opposite---I did exactly what it said because it was something I had never done before, except I used veg. margerine over the top rather than butter, a spectacular crust, believe me :)
