beer battered cheese bread
Today was just a delightful start of spring day. The sun was sparkling and I went with bunny to have espresso by his work at this cute coffee house called Extracto. They are in my top 3 of favorite places to have coffee at. I am a coffee snob, or should I say I just love good cappuccinos. I think Oregonians are just programmed to love coffee. We didn't stay long because the weather was to beautiful that after I dropped him off at work I ended up walking 10 miles home. It didn't seem like it and I made a lot of stops, I wish I would have had my camera. Portland on a sunny day has amazing spring seasons. autumn is my favorite time of year, but Spring in Oregon makes you feel revitalized! I am finally getting my full energy back after being ill so much. It lingered for so long.
I made Beer Batter Cheese Bread tonight from a recipe out of Cook's Country. I really like Cooks Country because of the test kitchen. The bread was made with Sapporo beer and Gruyere cheese. I added chives to the mix. I really enjoyed the crunchy top. It was super easy to make, it took less than an hour to make the whole thing, including prep. I ate way too much, and I am still really full!
