Over the Christmas holiday, Chris and I attended a dinner party over at our friend EW’s house. We decided to bring a bottle of wine and this bread. I know EW is a HUGE bread lover so I thought I’d bake him a loaf. In the past, I have baked him savory breads but he seemed to love beer bread more than others. I’m guessing it’s the dense texture and the crusty top.
My first post of the year. Yes, I’m extremely behind! Chris and I were away for our anniversary and when we got back from our mini-trip, there was so much to do around the house that blogging took a backseat again. Anyway, I hope everyone had a lovely holiday! Can you believe we’re in 2014?! It’ll take some time before I get used to writing 2014 on my checks and signed documents.
Today is a special day. It marks my 15-year union with Chris. And I say union because we were together for 11 years before we got married. He’s the most loving, understanding, caring and giving man I know. And I feel so lucky to have him as my partner.
Today is Christmas Eve! I hope everyone has all their Christmas shopping done and presents wrapped. I’m still behind on my gift wrapping. My last few presents came via delivery yesterday so I’ll be wrapping today —yay!
I love baking this time of the year. There are a lot of seasonal items during the Christmas holidays that you don’t see year-round. Gingerbread Twix is one of them. So if I’m bombarding you with all these sweets, my apologies!
