For a few years now I've been thinking about making cornbread. My sister makes it and her family loves it. I love cornbread too. I always load up on it whenever we go to Chuck A Rama. It's like eating healthy cake. In the past I have bought those little bags of cornmeal thinking that I would make corn bread. Well, you know me, I never do what I intend to do, so over the years I have thrown out expired corn meal that's never been opened.
But last week the stars aligned. I found a recipe for cornbread and a new bag of corn meal in the pantry, Capri was asleep, Roman was playing race cars by himself and the kitchen was fairly clean, so I thought ok, I will give this a try. I made the corn bread which was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. I didn't burn it so that was good. The only thing was I didn't know what else to make with it. What goes good with corn bread? I don't know. Probably a whole bunch of things but nothing that my family will eat.
I ended up making chicken and, yeah, it didn't go that great together. But hey, at least I can say that I have made corn bread now and it turned out pretty good. The kids weren't goo goo over it but that is to be expected. My kids don't get excited about any food unless it's chocolate chip cookies. Then all the sudden they love to eat. I made sure to eat lots and lots of corn bread that night to make it worth all the effort.
PS Does anyone feel sorry for me? I mean, I seriously can't stand this whole dinner thing. And it doesn't feel like it's ever going to change. Ugh.
