Carbs never tasted so good.

I am pretty sure that I could live off bread and cheese. I would end up looking like a roll but whatever. My MIL {mom in law} makes the best breads. I love when we go over for dinner and there is a fresh loaf sitting on the dinner table. Makes my heart go pitter patter and my thighs grow an inch. One of my favorite loafs she has made is the beer bread. For the record, I am not a beer person and by no means can you get drunk or tipsy off of this recipe but you can taste it and it's awesome! I have made two loafs in the past two weeks and I need to stop! I'm running out of butter!!

 

Anyway, here is the recipe. Super simple and you don't even need a bread machine, just a good old fashion oven :) 

 

The Best Beer Bread Ever {or so I think }

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch baking pan.
  2. In a bowl, mix the self-rising flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. Pour in the beer, and mix just until moistened. Transfer to the prepared baking pan. Top with the melted butter.
  3. Bake 45 to 55 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
 I am eating a slice as I type this out and am still drooling! 
The key to this bread...don't over cook it and put lots of butter on a warm slice.

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
