Its hard to believe that Christmas has passed, we rang in the New Year and have said goodbye to the second week of January, all the while wearing shorts and tee-shirts down here in The Lone Star State.
Today has finally given us something that resembles winter-overcast skies, wind and a cool drizzling of rain. The few handfuls of leaves still grasping to the pear tree won't last long now. They have a story of fight and survival on their hands and thus must be strong.

|They last few just holding on|
|WW Beer Bread|
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
4 1/2 t. baking powder
1 1/2 t. salt
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
1 (12-fl. oz) bottle beer (we use Shiner-'cause its the law)
- Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, stir the flours, baking powder, and salt together. Add brown sugar and mix the dry ingredients together. Add the beer and stir until a stiff batter forms. Scrape dough into prepared pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
