Y’all should be in my house right now…I have temporarily taken the “healthy living” out of my blogging, and gone to the dark side. In honor of Lucas‘ blog anniversary on Thursday, I’ve made an incredible celebration feast, all centered on beer that Luke’s brewed over the last year:
- Beer cake with bourbon-soaked raisins (recipe here)
- Used Cranberry Ginger Pale Ale/”CGI“
- Stout ice cream (recipe here)
- Blueberry Chocolate Stout/”Enough of the BCS“
- Pale ale pretzel caramels (recipe here)
- English Pale Ale/”Over the Pond”
I used four sticks of butter and an entire bag of sugar to make these three recipes, and yes — I feel a little ashamed. I know Lucas will be blogging about the results, and I’ll have a post in the near future detailing the steps to smorgasbord.
I’m such a good wife. Remember when I made him Bacon Maple Birthday Cake?
But today, I want to share a couple of videos with you. First, the little snapshot of my sleepytime that has gotten me into the *finals* of Sabrina’s awesome mattress contest! I have some great competition, but I think we have a good entry:
That is only partially fiction. I have found one dog or the other on my pillow when I return from midnight potty breaks.
Now to the second video…and I’m really excited, because it’s proof that some products are not too good to be true! I have a famous (because it’s been featured by Nasoya) Tofu Pressing Technique, that has always involved weights, paper towels and a pretty knarly looking process. Thankfully, I’ve gotten an upgrade, thanks to TofuXpress.
Disclaimer alert! The fine folks at TofuXpress sent me this product to try out…this is my honest review. It rocks.
We have used it multiple times for pressing and marinating tofu. We have not yet tried it for spinach, eggplant, etc., but we plan to!
Here are some pictures of the process, but honestly — Lucas did a video that does a much better job of explaining the awesomeness. So make sure you scroll down.
