Many people I know love to have a beer or two, especially around the fire while having a braai (BBQ), at night. This morning, one of my clients phoned me and ask if I have an image of beer somewhere in my archives. I don’t, but quickly added that I’ll make one for her as it was on deadline for this afternoon.
I sent a selection of glasses that I have at home for approval of what type of glass to use for the shot. Now for those of you who know me, I don’t drink, so no beers in the fridge. I went to shop close by, bought some beers, got ready for the shot and saw that the glasses that I was about to use were badly scratched. Off to the shops again to buy some beer glasses for the shot and voila, the shot was made, sent and approved.
Now what to do with all this beer. How about a beer bread? So I phoned my client, asked if she could remember where the beer bread recipe was that I shot a few years ago. Got the food book, Plaaskos, followed the instructions and as advised, put in some cheese for a twist on the original recipe and waited in anticipation for the result. Mmmmm. Yummy!
