Third in line were cheddar beer crackers. VERY TASTY. And easy! That reminds me.... Gotta bake up my leftover dough (we only cooked half to save some for later)!
Next up was a quick beer bread -- literally, quick.... like five ingredients, a few quick stirs, and then into the oven! Very tasty, dense and filling, but an excellent side bread. PERFECT for dipping in cheddar ale soup. I would definitely make this loaf again. Whereas the rye bread baked on a stone in the oven, this one just got dumped in a loaf pan and fired right up. Easy peasy.
And last... but DEF not least... apricot beer scones. YUM. I could have gobbled all of these up -- and it was tempting, trust me. But I have some (very little, but some) self control and quickly got as many of these out of the house as possible. :)
In addition to many new baking tips... I was also reminded that being immature never gets old. And getting busted is even better. I mean come on -- four hours of "look at the size of that loaf" and "it's like tossing a salad"? How is it possible that Lisa and I were the only ones giggling and smirking? And how awesome that, to thwart our immaturity, the dreamy teacher actually said, "Lisa? Did you have a question?" Classic.
Thursday night it was back to Novi for Hooters and double feature... This week we were treated to Wild Zero. I won't give anything away -- you simply MUST see it. But here are some peeks into the amazingness that was Wild Zero: "Love has no borders, nationalities, or genders!" "Stop being so shitty!" "You scared shit out of me!" "ROCK AND ROLL!" "No waaaaaaaay! No effing waaaaaay! Anything but that!".... and an evil Asian man in Peter Pan wig and hot pants.
Then Friday, Rachel and Floyd came over for a visit, and we took a lovely walk. Say hello to our little blonde mafia:
PS. I caught up with the last two episodes of Eli Stone today, including the season finale.... This show is SO GOOD. Love love love it. I'm so sad it's over for the year. It BETTER come back in the fall!!!!
