MR. SWEET and myself don't drink much beer..
well....me...NEVER..a half bottle gives me a headache and ...it tastes HORRIBLE to me.
HE has a few bottles during the year....but very few.
The above outback Texas Bar-b-Q sported a
of the tiniest little bottles of beer you ever saw.
YEP...I did buy those little beers for their cute little selves !
This one photo was in JULY of '10.
Here is the last TWO little bottles...
8 months later...
SEE, told ya we didn't drink it much....
O, and I used 2 bottles for cooking..:))
Now, I realize that these little adorable bottles of beer have a twist-off lid.
I LOVE using my little on-the-wall, old fashioned bottle opener..:))
Grands love it to open their coke bottles..
yep, we buy the little ones in GLASS bottles. ...just taste better to us.
"SHEILA, can you love a little, old fashioned bottle opener ?
Why, you bet your little Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper, you can !!"
YUM # ONE
take a gander at that FOAMING action..
smelling so yeasty and gooood.
There's no waiting around forever for it to rise..
After mixing, just
throw it in the pan
and start the baking.
OOO, that's a pretty sight !
I just wish Blogger would add a SCRATCH and SNIF gadget so YOU
could have smelled this while it was baking...
Mercy Me !

Cute little burlap bag that I just love...
do you have WORLD MARKET in your town?
Everything under the sun and so much fun to go thru.
Here, I have the little burlap cutie filled with
baking tools, some of which are vintage, belonging to my little mama.
Thrifted pot plant ..
I am hoping it and others I bought will live long
enough for me to repot them and put out on our front porch in the spring.

this is pretty much the reason for buying
the cute little bottles of beer in the first place...:))
A REAL flower tucked into each one...on a windowsill...*sigh
O, the amberness of it all....
I must tell you..
this is the BEST bread.
So quick to make and before you know it,
you are ready to sit down with a slice.
Like all homemades, no preservatives so that
means ya gotta eat it up quickly.
No problem !
LAURIE was kind enough to post the recipe and
I stole it so quick, she never even knew it
She surely named HER blog right...
I luv that name, Laurie....it has a warm, downhome, friendly sound to it.
...just like your homemade bread.
I sliced it HOT, right out of the oven
and it just about brought
MR. SWEET to his knees.
The outside is crispy while the texture inside is what I would call a "medium" density.
I also didn't have fresh herbs to add but I will get some before bread baking time
comes around again.

He used buttah...
I used Creme Cheese with Pecans
all served on my thrifted white plate.
This, with the fresh orange slices, made the most delightful afternoon snack..
WAIT...do I need
my afternoon cup of DUNKIN DONUTS coffee tasted just right...
