Tuesdays Treasures

It has been a few weeks since I have shared a treasure so this week I wanted to share my lovely granddaughters Caitlin and Alyssa ,our time together for three weeks was indeed a treasure and on this particular day we made bread together . They had so much fun kneading the dough and here you can see Caitlin showing her muscles as she is trying to mix in some of the flour with a dough hook . It really is what makes life special to spend quality time with your grandchildren , in fact all family members . I hope you have something to share today as a treasure and if so head on over to visit with Melody of The House on the Side of the Hill  our host for this weekly event . Thanks for stopping by and have a great day .
hugs Sheila

  9. Hello Sheila,

    Some very pretty treasures this week with beautiful smilses.

    I made some bread this week. I usually make my bread in a breadmaker but found this recipe. It is scrumptious.

    Beer Bread.
    3 cups flour
    3 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 can beer (rinse out the can with water to make the volume up to 400mls- don't use low alochol beer)
    1 handful grated cheese,about 1/2 cup.

    Pre-heat over to 200 degrees Celcius. Mix the flour,baking powder salt and beer in a large bowl until well combined. Tip into a large 21cm by 12cm non stick or well greased loaf tine. Or use 2 smaller 8 by 15cxm tines. Sprinkle the top with grated cheese. Bake the large loaf for 50 to 60 minutes or the two smaller loaves for 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Tip out and cool on a wire rack for slicing. This is beautiful sliced with butter fresh from the oven and makes beautiful toast.

    I got the recipe from a cookbook from New Zealand.

    Hope you have a go at making it, I told my hubbie he could even do it.

    Happy days.

  10. You look like you have a great company. I hope you make the dish wash after Sheila.
    LOVE Susanne
