Oh wow, is it Wednesday already?! My blog has been seriously neglected. E and M just left. And I’m pooped! It has been quite an exhausting weekend. We were out all day Sunday and Monday. Mostly outdoor stuff —poolside barbecue and picnic barbecue. And I’m not into any of those things. There’s one thing you need to know about me. I don’t like getting dirty and I don’t like outdoorsy activities. OK, that’s two things. Why? It’s mainly because of the insects. I attract them. They love to eat me alive. Plus, I do not like dining with any bugs around. Who does? Aside from that, it was great seeing my nieces, E and M!
Doesn’t the title of this post sound a bit strange? Ricotta and yogurt?! Well, I was going through the fridge and had stuff I needed to use up before they go bad. I had about a half cup of ricotta left but it wasn’t enough for a bread batter so I added yogurt, which also needed to be used up. Surprisingly, the bread turned out super moist and delicious. Who knew? Happy hump day!
I’m a bit late on this post but I made this last week to pair it with the Ranchero Beef Stew we had for dinner. I made this into mini loaves so I can give some away. This beer bread is fantastic by itself or with soups or stews. Anything with beer in it is a great start to the week! Toodles!
I promise, this will be the last banana recipe for a while. I finally used up the last three bananas in my possession —yay! What a relief! I thought my last couple of bananas were black but these were super black and ripe! But the outcome of these cute little mini loaves were delicious. Who doesn’t like banana and chocolate with crunchy almonds? I shared these loaves with my neighbor Angela and my dear friend Lisa, who I’m having lunch with today. Happy hump day!
This morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my Haemul Pajeon (Korean Seafood Pancake) was mentioned in The Guardian UK! Thanks to the lovely and talented Claire over at Under the Blue Gum tree for submitting her adaptation of this recipe to tailor towards the 5:2 Diet.
