Thrive Bakes: Beer Bread

Helloooooo Fall and soup season! Soup season is my very favorite. For us, it goes from about the end of September through March. The first few years of marriage, I would make a soup or stew every Monday for dinner. It was a nice tradition that I looked forward to and gave me cozy leftovers for the rest of the week! Nowadays I don’t make soup on Mondays exclusively but I do make it once a week at least. And one of my favorite sides is beer bread! So I’m gonna share my favorite recipe with you!

Just for myself. It doesn’t rhyme usually and it often doesn’t make sense, but it’s quirky nature makes me feel better. To give you an idea, here are a few…..

Autumn Check In

I was talking to my sister-in-law the other day and we were lamenting a bit about this past summer. We felt like it hit us both really hard as well as lots of people we know. For my husband and I, we’ve struggled through job stress, bouts of anxiety, arguments about said job, and filling the calendar too full so the house stays dirty and the yard is a grass jungle. Here at the beginning of fall, I’m not sure if we’re breathing a sigh of relief or just a heavy sigh. So I wanted to check in on you and see how your summer went. Grab a cup of coffee or run to Starbucks for that PSL, I’ll wait……
