2020 June 02 Beer Bread


Welcome, family and friends to our daily journal,

from Liberty Hill, Texas.

efore we get into this post, I feel the need to say this, I’m an occasional drinker. By that I mean, about once every three years or so, I have a beer. Yesterday I purchased a twenty four ounce can of beer. I had this recipe for beer bread that called for twelve ounces of beer. Twelve ounce cans aren’t sold separately (I guess) so I bought the large can.And this morning, before breakfast / for breakfast I made the bread. It turned out real well. I found out later that I could have used a soft drink instead of beer. And, yes, I did drink most of the rest, although some just went down the drain.Here is a video from this morning.his was the eastern sky this morning. It looked promising. But it was a promise unfulfilled. No beautiful sunrise. Never saw hide nor hair of the sun until around ten. Speaking of “hide nor hair,” I actually knew a guy named Harry Hyde. What were His parents thinking? They didn’t do any better with his younger brother, Dick.I was more concerned about the western sky this morning. Those clouds looked less than friendly. And indeed, it turned out that they passed right on over without even a “HowdyDo.”hile the bread baked, I reinstalled the drawers, which I had removed to make more room for bags of cans (see Sunday and Monday’s posts). I also stowed most of our folding camp chairs. I feel much better now that my topper isn’t backed full of empty beer and soft drink cans, with all the ants, slugs, dirt, maggots, mud, and Lord only knows what else lurked I those cans.I received an email from my truck:“Cars Don’t Like to Sit Idle

Cars are meant to be driven. A car parked for extended periods risks the battery losing charge, tires gaining flat spots, rubber components such as belts and wipers drying out, and critters taking residence in your engine compartment.
Drive the car at least once a week for 20 minutes or longer to ensure that the battery is charged. Driving is a good solo activity, and frankly, many people probably need to shake off some cabin fever.
While in the car, check for any food, snacks, beverages, or disinfectant wipes that were left behind. Even better: Also vacuum the carpet. These steps can reduce the risks of mildew and unpleasant odors from developing.”

All good advice. Though the last paragraph seemed a little snarky for my truck to say to me!or lunch I made some open face hot pork sandwiches. I prefer hot beef, but I had some pulled pork left over from the BBQ pork a free days back..also took some time today to work on a sermon. It just needs to be read through aloud. That’s how to proof read, check for length of time, and clarity.Thanks again for stopping by. Share this with your friends. See y’all again tomorrow. Stay safe. Remember, we love you.
