Fresh Baked Beer Bread and Peach Pie!!

Today I had a really lazy day until I decided I was going to bake!  I made beer bread for dinner-really easy!!  Here's the recipe:

3 cups self rising flour
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 can or bottle of beer

Mix together and put in a greased bread pan to rise for 15 mins.  Then preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bake bread after the 15 minute rising for 1 hour.  3/4's of the way through brush top of bread with butter and after you take the bread out of the oven also.  Let cool and slice.  Wonderful toasted the next day for breakfast!!

Then my grandsons brought me some peaches when they went to SC.  They were a little hard then but just right for pie now!  I added some peaches I bought at the farm stand yesterday and made a fresh peach pie for dessert tonight.  It wouldn't be right if I didn't invite the little boys over for some, so they are on their way! 

Yesterday when we were at the farm stand we got corn and yellow squash.  I really love butter and sugar corn or yellow corn but all they had was white corn.  It was good and very tender, but not butter and sugar!  I also love yellow squash-that was wonderful!  I cooked one of my Dad's grass-fed sirloin steaks and made mashed potatoes too!  What a wonderful and tasty dinner and dessert!!

As I was walking around my garden today, I looked at the moon vine.  It is loaded with more buds!!  I also noticed the leaves are heart-shaped.  Then I do remember my Nana told me about the heart shaped leaves.  She told me that when she shared her knowledge of the moon vine and would call me to come watch it open with her, it was because she was opening her heart up and sharing this with me!!  I really miss her!!

Well that is about it for me today!  I'm going to sit and read my Elin Hilderbrand book while I wait for Jenny and the grandboys to arrive for fresh peach pie and ice cream!!  Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

It turned out really good too! My grandboys did a good job picking peaches for me :)!!

Hi Sherri....your pie reminds me of my Dad. I would bake him a pie and bring it to work for him...warm with vanilla ice cream.
I usually add some sugar to the boiling water to sweeten up the corn for my hubby, because he likes his corn pretty sweet, too. It works!
Sounds like you are enjoying your summer.
Your headers are always so pretty!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
