Friends, Food, Fun

My friends are so amazing. There are two of us that had moved away. We all haven't been together at one time in well over a year. The girls in New Orleans got together and sent Southwest giftcards for a flight back home to visit. We're planning on next month. I'm excited. I miss the Council so much. YaaY!! Coffee and food and fun =)

I finally heard from S a few minutes ago. He's in Guam. He met up with a guy he went to the academy with and he showed him around. He got to see the end of a fire twirling show, and women in coconut bras. I'm jealous. He had to get ready to go and catch his flight back to Hawaii and then from Hawaii home. He should be back in the morning, that is as long as he doesn't get delayed two days again in Hawaii!

I made a beer bread recipe last night. Super easy, and tasty, just on the sweeter side. I had to stop myself from munching on it last night after it was cool enough to cut!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

Beat the beer and brown sugar together in a mixing bowl to make a smooth mixture. Add the baking powder, and gradually stir in the flour to make a smooth dough. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes.

Remove the bread from the oven, and pour melted butter over the top. Return to the oven, and continue baking until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 10 minutes more. Cool in pan 5 minutes before turning out onto a rack. Cool bread 10 minutes more before slicing.
