For some reason, though neither my husband nor I drink beer, I always have it around. I love to. It can really add flavor to recipes. Is this just an Hoosier thing?
The other day I was in the mood for bratwursts, but I wanted to try something different. Beer makes everything taste better right? So I grabbed out a beer and poured it in, along with some chopped vegetables. My husband came inside and gagged. The entire kitchen smelled of beer and the recipe was overwhelming in smell and taste. So, I started going to work to counteract the beer flavor. In the end, my husband devoured it and told me to “add this to the list!” It was amazingly delicious.

- Be Centsible: Stock up on Bratwurst during the summer. They usually hit the lowest price around holiday in which most people cook out, like Independence Day.
- Change It Up: Try honey flavored beer, if you have it on hand, instead of beer and honey. Or use regular mustard instead of dry mustard. You can use the same amount.
