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 mother-in-law is engaged! This is her third marriage and I hope it’ll be a happily ever after for her. Chris and I have been together for almost 15 years and it has been a wonderful and blissful union. I hope she finds the same with her new fiancé. She sounded really happy over the phone about being engaged to a man she has known for 20 years. I’m happy that she’s happy. She deserves it. She’ll be visiting us with her new fiancé next Tuesday. I know, odd day but they’re only in town for a day. This means I’ll be cleaning the house this weekend.
Yesterday morning, I spotted a spider lurking around my dish rack. I was so grossed out by it I had to hose it down with water then turned on the garbage disposal to make sure it’s dead. One time, a waterbug crawled up my garbage disposal and it scared the bejesus out of me. I had to make sure that didn’t happen again. With that creepy crawler crawling through my clean dishes, I had to load everything in the dishwasher, dish rack included, to sanitize everything. I detest spiders don’t you?
Weird to be sharing that on a food blog but enough about spiders and let’s talk about food (if you’re still with me)! I’ve got a good one today. If you love crabs and if you love dips, this is a good one to make when company comes over. And it takes no time to make –don’t you just love that? I love the jalapeno pepper in here. It gives it heat but is not overpowering. Have a great weekend everyone!
I came across this recipe on the back of my chili bottle. It was a fairly easy recipe to make and with so little ingredients so I made it over the weekend. Although I’m not a fan of processed cheese, this was quite tasty. My family came by and we all snacked on this dip. My nephew LOVED it! He’s a cheese lover so what’s not to like? This dip is perfect for those casual impromptu entertaining and great for when you’re watching a game. Bust open a bottle of beer and it’s all good!
It was a lazy Sunday yesterday. Didn’t do much but cooking and chores, which included ransacking my fridge and tossing anything past its prime and unpleasant. I was going through the fridge and saw some leftover fresh capellini pasta and bell pepper I wanted to use up, and this dish was the perfect place to use them in. The frittata was very filling. The pasta really made it more substantial than your average frittata and it gave it texture! Enjoy this on any lazy day off. Until next time…
