I do not make beer bread fairly often, as a result of each time I eat the entire bread myself, after which my husband goes mad that there’s nothing left for him. What ought to I do, No eat beer bread? It’s irresistible. He cannot blame me for placing away an entire pan stuffed with scorching, scrumptious beer bread with none assist.
However then my husband begins with “Effectively, why did not you inform me you have been making beer loaf within the first place?” Nonsense.
