Beer on the Brain: Favor Mock-up

March 4, 2010 at 4:07 pm Leave a comment

It’s Lent in the Pretzel house and this means giving something up for 40 days until Easter.  When I was a kid I would give up candy because between you and me, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth.  But, the real purpose of “giving something up” is personal sacrifice, which if its candy- isn’t much of a sacrifice for me.   This year Mr Pretzel and I did something unthinkable….

We gave up beer.  Serious sacrifice.  We’re hanging in there but we have beer on the brain.  What better time to tackle our favors.

No, we’re not giving homemade beer- the non-beer drinkers and underage guests wouldn’t appreciate homemade beer like we do.  Since one of our favorite past-times is cooking, Mr P and I decided to give our guests homemade beer bread mix.  Our guest will just have to add 12 oz of their favorite beer to our delicious mix and bake.

Check it out!

Ingredients in layers, packaged up all pretty.

Since I don’t have a “signature” recipe, we’re trying out different online recipes.  This one includes cornmeal, brown sugar, Parmesan cheese  and pepper flakes. Yummmmm.  We had to give it a test drive of course!

A simple equation for our guests

It was yummy but we’re not 100% sold yet and are still searching for the perfect recipe.

Are you making your own edible favors? Where did you find your recipe?

PS: If you are worried we won’t make it all 40 days, don’t worry- we did this last year and survived. Mr P also lost 10 lbs last year. Sadly I didn’t drop a lb. booo
