The Beer Tasting

Last night my friends and I kicked back at BEERFEST! 2011 aka the beer tasting hosted by Malik and me. It was good people, good food, and good beer... an overall GREAT night. Above are some of the beers we tasted.

One of my brighter ideas was to make homemade corn dogs for everyone to snack on. I'm looking homely in this picture but they were a big hit!

Here is the recipe from if you want to try them out

1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 quart vegetable oil for frying
2 (16 ounce) packages beef frankfurters
16 wooden skewers
1.In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, sugar and baking powder. Stir in eggs and milk.
2.Preheat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Insert wooden skewers into frankfurters. Roll frankfurters in batter until well coated.
3.Fry 2 or 3 corn dogs at a time until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
