Honey Of A Peanut Butter Loaf

Pretty ain't it!

Pretty ain’t it!

Well, if this had went according to Plan A, you could have been sampling a taste of your own today! This is another one of our disasters or almost disaster that happened yesterday! Husband wanted to get the north forty of the property mowed before the rain and according to radar, it seemed to be somewhat far off and so he was off, and I mean that in more ways than one, love ya honey! Now since he had checked radar and all was clear on the western front, I figured I’d stay busy making this bread. With the batter almost complete, BAM, lightening struck really really close to home. Worried about him first and my bread second, for a second there it was a toss up…ha ha!

I stuck my head out to see if he was on his way back to shelter; sure enough he was heading for the barn. Okay he’s safe, now onto my bread………. It wasn’t a little over 5 minutes in the oven when the power starting flickering continuously and then the worst happened, IT WENT DARK and then it stayed DARK for 2 hours! What to do? I pulled the bread out of the oven and the top was just starting to set up. ?!#* Kenny suggested I stick in the frig and I decided to just leave it out.

With power restored, I turned the oven back on and with fingers crossed, I threw it back in for the amount of time per the recipe. After said time, I checked and it looked a little funky, but it tested done or so I thought. Out of the oven, cool in the pan for a few minutes and now onto a wire rack to finish cooling. This is when it really got so bad that it was actually funny!

Well..it still tasted pretty darn good!

Well..it still tasted pretty darn good!

You see, I had tested it for it’s doneness and all seemed fine, NOT! My guess was that the top was so nice and crunchy from the double exposure to the oven that when I inserted my tester, the top being so crispy wiped all the uncooked dough clean. Upon flipping it over to the rack, the raw dough came gushing out from under the nice cooked top of the bread, oops! We quickly tried to amend the sitiation (and yes I meant to spell it that way) and threw it back into the oven without it’s top and finished cooking it. It came out a little funky looking, but I have to say the flavor was there and it will still be enjoyed with coffee or topped off with some nice homemade ice cream! Next time I bake, there will be blue skies above and absolutely no hint of rain coming down on our parade…………

Just wanted to get a quick message out today to remind everyone of what a special weekend this truly is! It’s not just about the BBQ but time to thank all of those who have served and are serving our country so that we can enjoy the freedom we have today!

Our front porch.

Our front porch.

So on that note, just thought I’d remind you of a couple of recipes from the cooking- with-mama archives that might spark your interest for this wonderful weekend of cooking on the grill. For us, we’re having some fresh shrimp on the barbie along with some wonderful grilled steaks. For that steak we are going to use Magic Dust to make them mouth watering. For ribs lets go with the Mexican Rubbed Back Rib recipe or even the Louisiana Meat Rub if adventurous and want some real HEAT! For a tasty BBQ Sauce, a recipe given to me years ago and as close to Bull’s Eye as it can get………..
If you want to marinade we have the Corona Beer Marinade which is excellent or the Yuengling Lager Beer Marinade if you want to stay with an American beer!
Then for some sides we have Confederate Slaw which might be appropriate for the holiday and of course the Perfect Cole Slaw  I have been making this for everyone, they always ask for if they’re coming over for a cook out as it’s almost identical to KFC’s and I’ve been making it for years, literally!
Onto dessert, do you even have to ask, WATERMELON, of course……………..
Have a great one, be safe and enjoy…….. We’re out of here until next week!

          Always remember….Never forget….Those that have fallen!
