It's only Tuesday today and I'm having a bad week already! Does anybody else have constant nagging thoughts in their head? My mum passed away almost two years ago now and I'm starting to really struggle without her. When she was alive people walked all over her because she was such a giving and loving person and I feel a lot of the time that she's still being disrespected in death. I suppose the only way I'm going to feel better is to express and share these feelings with the people involved but to top these thoughts off, my kids keep playing a game of who can out scream each other! If anybody has a headache, you can guarantee it is me!
Coffee: The elixir of life. The cocoa coloured drink that awakens our senses, stirs our emotions, and fuels our fires. The humble coffee bean, whether it be Arabica or Robusta, shapes our world by keeping us going in our hours of fatigue and need.
In the small city of Houma, Louisiana, there's a restaurant in its downtown area called Milano. My husband and I recently visited and found it to be a nice place to have a romantic dinner or to just eat somewhere fancy.
Before you start the main dish, make some bacon and set to the side to cool. I used eight slices or so. It really just depends on how much you love bacon (which should be a whole lot). I usually cook my bacon in a cast iron skillet. Great flavor, it doesn't stick, and you get to save all the leftover fat to cook other delicious things in. However, prepare it whatever way works best for you!
Through the ages, beer has seen many changes from Meade and Guinness, to prohibition and craft brews. Everything you could ever want from your alcoholic beverage can be found or fashioned into an incredibly tasting brew that steals your taste buds away within every sip. That’s the awesome power that only beer and it's many variations can provide: an unusual mixture of flavors that range far and wide, to the exotic and domestic. Maybe it's for the love of beer, or maybe the liquid itself is just that versatile. It doesn't matter because the truth is beer and wine have gone together long since forever.
