We have become very familiar with the brotherly St. Peter since he was the one who denied Jesus three times anyway, it is easy to take his name in vain.
Or when irritated that someone had done something really stupid and you cry out, “For Pete’s sake! What did you do that for?”
You get the jist of this. A way to swear without actually swearing in front of the children. Well, swearing is in the meaning not in the actual words, or is that not so?
So, here is a recipe for this day for you to make and for Pete’s Sake do not grouse, just try it.
Here is a tired and true great recipe for Beer Bread. Easy and fast, this will make you seem like you baked all day in the kitchen and the results are tasty and different.
