Had plenty of power when I got home. Finished cutting the side pieces for the forms and started on the bracing. Around 1:30 the creek travelers stopped by for a tour. Very nice folks. I followed them out to go pick up my mail. Completed the forms by 5PM. Worked in the shade of one of my shipping containers. Had 2 longhorns in for a snack around sunset - Caroline and Cosmo. I don't see them very often any more. Perhaps they are afraid of the drug trouble south of the border - hundreds of miles from me. Saw one very pregnant longhorn this morning stroll by - she looks like she is ready to drop any day now. Looking forward to the new crop of bovines to frequent my spread this summer.
When I dropped off the bread to KRTS the other day....Tom Michael asked if it was made with Chelada ( Budweiser and Clamato juice ). It wasn't but it got me thinking.... So today I tried a batch of the new Field Lab Specialty Bread - and although it sounds really weird, it is actually pretty good. Try it if you dare! Tastes best of course baked in a solar oven. I'm sending a chunk of it to Cousin Holly via Aunt Kathy tomorrow. Holly turned me on to Cheladas last year. Perhaps if I call it Holly Bread instead of Beer Clam Tomato Bread it will have more mass appeal.
2 tablespoons mesquite seasoning
1 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1 16oz can of Bud Light Chelada
mix it all up, lightly kneed, and bake.
caution: contains tomato and clam juice.
