To Beer Bread

Possible due to my gracious housemate Roxanne who gave me a bottle of beer (:

Extremely simple

Ingredients:
12 oz. bottle of beer
3 cups self-rising flour
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter (optional)

Directions:
Mix the first three together
Pour into a greased bread loaf pan and bake at 375 for 58 min
Pull from the oven and brush with the melted butter and put back in for another 2 min – let cool and remove from pan – Voila! Beer bread that all love!

Cheers

To Spinach Dip

Spinach is what made Pop-Eye strong and yet for some odd reason it never seems to be the favorite vegetable. On the contrary I love spinach – especially spinach dip (even though it’s not the healthiest way to eat it) when it crossed my mind this afternoon to make some to go with the beer bread for brunch tomorrow I immediately texted my sister to get the recipe that she uses. Simple enough it is the Knorr Vegetable Mix recipe. Or as follows (I have made a few tweaks to the packet recipe):

Ingredients:
3/4 cup mayo
1 cup plain yogurt
1 Packet Knorr Vegetable Mix
10 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed
3 Green Onions Chopped (I used one huge one that I get from my fav. organic vegetable stand at the farmer’s market)
(optional use of water chestnuts – I didn’t use these since I forgot to buy them)

Directions:
Mix all of the above together and put in a cute dish and let chill for a minimum of 2 hours (overnight is best)

Eat with beer bread 

Cheers
