That is what I said when I stumbled upon this instant bread in an awesome terracotta bowl (in a pharmacy, no less). Generally, one-off novelty items like this that pop up in strange places dissuade me, but really, Herb and Garlic Bread in a terracotta bowl? That’s a no-brainer.
Just add beer? Really? Just beer? Even my Saturday nights require more than just adding beer to prove delicious. If you say so amazing easy-bread.
Ok, even unbaked, it looks awesome. I could just leave this on my counter as is, and anyone who passed though would trust that I am a country-kitchen goddess.
Step one: the sacrifice.
(Please excuse the blurred quality. It was the beer’s fault.)
Step two: let the bread rise, then place in oven.
While the bread is baking, clean up the big mess you made…
Oh wait! You didn’t make a big mess because all you had to do was ADD BEER!
Instead, pet adorable cat. This easy-bread thing only gets better and better.
(The hairy arm is Jeff’s, I swear.)
DING! It’s done! And it looks amazing!
Step three: enjoy delicious, dense, celery-seed infused bread with boyfriend’s BEST CHILI EVER and a couple heads of roasted garlic. Heaven.
Is it *homemade*? No. Am I slightly blaspheme-ing my domestic goddess status by making something pre-mixed***? Possibly. Is it worthy of being on my cousin Adam’s amazing new food blog? No. But is it food that is good for the soul? Hellllllz yah. So take a chance on those funny little novelty items; you might just be surprised.
