>Communications and recipes

>  After hearing that there are actually people that read my blog, I have a little more passion for keeping this up. It’s a fantastic opportunity to pass out information that I otherwise wouldn’t have an audience for. Well, honestly, I probably don’t have an audience for it, but hey, readership of 1 isn’t too bad. (-;

  In any case one thing I should pass on is that UBC fees were due on the 8th. Of course, they don’t tell you – no mail, no email, not even a pigeon with a note tied to it’s feet. There isn’t even a bill. You just have to sign in online, and poke around till you find it. Don’t they have a faculty of communication studies poking about somewhere?

  The other thing I wanted to post is a recipe. I have no idea where I got it, but it’s well worth posting – and now that I’m in grad school again, it’s even appropriate.

Beer Bread

3 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1.5 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 (12-ounce) can of beer

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Grease a 9x5x3 pan
  3. Combine all ingredients (dry first, wet last)
  4. Place in pan (don’t pack down)
  5. bake 1 hour

Optional: Add herbs and seeds to give it different flavours (I love crushed rosemary in it)
Optional: Smear with melted butter on the top, with 10 minutes left in baking time.

  I’ve tried with a couple of different beers: Corona gives a light bread, kinda flavourless; Guiness makes a bread that’s almost like a rye; Hoegaarden gives a fantastically yeasty flavour to it, and is definitely my favourite!

  Happy cooking!
