WIth apologies to my friends who sell Tastefully Simple

First of all, let me say that I accomplished something that would have, I believe, in some circles of religions, put me into sainthood. It was a miracle of dramatic proportions, and even I can hardly believe it.
I made a turkey meatloaf that my family loved.
This was a miracle because a) my kids ate meatloaf and liked it and b) my husband didn't blurt out "where's the beef?" as if he were an old lady jonesing for a square hamburger patty.
I personally ate so much of it that I skipped breakfast this morning because I was still full from the amount that I crammed in at dinner.
But besides the amazing turkey meatloaf, I also whipped up a loaf of beer bread to welcome the husband home from a business trip. And as much as I love the simple and tasty packages that I tend to buy at home parties, this recipe is so easy. So easy. And cheap. Your friends will be amazed.
I should say that my mom made this all the time when I was a kid, and being the dough-lover that I am, I would sneak fingerfuls of this while she mixed it in the bowl. I was always a little bit afraid I was going to get drunk.
I never did.

Beer Bread

3 cups self rising flour
3-4 Tablespoons sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
1 egg
1 can or bottle of beer
1/2 stick melted butter

Mix together everything but the butter in a big bowl. Don't overmix. Pour the lumpy batter into a greased bread pan and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Pour the melted butter over the loaf and bake for another 15 minutes.

Yep, it's that easy.
