my favorite cornbread

iron skillet cornbreadi use an 8″ iron skillet for this…pour enough veg. oil on the bottom of the skillet to coat it (about 1/8-1/4 cup) then put it in the oven at 375* while it preheats.then take another frying pan add 2 or so tablespoons of fake butter and cook up until tender about 1-2 cups of chopped yellow onion depending on how much you like onions – then set it aside to cool a bit then add 6-8 ounces of sour cream and a cup or so of chedder cheese. (i use soy sour cream and a block of rice cheese). set this aside.mix up 3/4 cup of self-rising cornmeal (or cornbread mix is basically the same thing), 2 teaspoons of brown sugar (or white sugar), a dash of dill weed, one egg substitute, about 3/4 can of creamed corn (sometimes i get dangerous and use the whole can or i use the leftover and just add it to a pot of corn for a veggie plate), 2 tablespoons of milk and a dash of hot sauce.pull the iron skillet out of the oven and add the hot veg. oil to the mix then pour it all in the iron skillet. carefully spoon the sour cream/onion/cheese mixture on top and then add some more cheese if you like. bake about 35 minutes at 375*.

my funny guy

my 3yr old is completely hilarious most of the time. he tells me all day long he loves me and makes me laugh constantly.  after a crummy day at work i came home and hubby had to run off to work so i’m hungry and exhausted with two kids who are wide awake.  around 10:30 i finally get the baby to sleep and go to put both kids in bed and realize a poopy diaper had leaked ALL over the bed and hubby didn’t notice.  so i had to change the sheets and bedspread and throw them in the laundry and of course the baby woke up again so i am running around the house all pissy and the 3yr old kept telling me he loved me and he was sorry. i told him it wasn’t his fault and i was not mad at him i was just mad at daddy.  the next day when i was at work the boy woke up and said to daddy, “mommy is mad at you ’cause i pooped on the bed.”
