lovey dovey

I love my family!

I am a wife, mother of three beautiful boys, and a middle school administrator. At times, I have mistakenly tried to achieve perfection in each role. These attempts always fail miserably because there is no such thing as a perfect wife, a perfect mom or a perfect worker! I decided to relinquished my pursuit of perfection…I can say without guilt that my shortcomings are vast and my mistakes many. Embracing my imperfections and turning my life over to God has been freeing and led to a sweeter life. I found that when I quit trying so hard, that SOMETIMES things magically fall into place and for brief moments I am “Supermom.”

Corona Bread!

We aren't really beer drinkers at our house.  My husband might have one once in a blue moon.  Me, never, because I hate the taste of it!  But, I have two recipes that call for beer that I love:  Beer Bread and Beer-B-Q.  The Beer Bread is from a local cafe and the bbq recipe is something I discovered years ago in a magazine.  They are super easy and really favorite two combinations!  Maybe you will enjoy them too. 

Beer Bread
3 cups self rising flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 can warm beer
1/2 stick butter

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix well in mixer.  Put in bread pan.  Pour 1/2 stick butter over raw dough.  Bake for one hour at 350.  The bread will appear to have a tough top, don't worry!  This is what makes it sooo yummy.  

1 lb (or more) rump roast
1 small bottle of ketchup
1 can of beer
1/2 cup brown sugar

Mix ketchup, beer, and sugar together.  Cut the roast in half and place in Crock Pot and pour the other ingredients on top.  Cook on high all day long (at least 6 hours)...I've had on high longer and it didn't burn or dry out.  Take the meat and place on a cutting board.  Use two forks to shred it.  Take some of the remaining juice out of the Crock Pot and pour over shredded meat.  Serve on toasted hamburger buns.  It is yummy with potato salad or cole slaw.  It makes a ton!

Do you have any easy, yummy recipes?
