Day 46 – Today is my son’s birthday. Birthday number 2 in “Safe home. Stay safe.” I love that we don’t have to order out for the kids birthdays they want me to cook their favorite dinners. We did order a cake from the local grocery store decorated with Star Wars for his birthday. We ordered him a few gifts online. Most of them came in but one of them is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. We had to put quite a bit of thought into the gifts as we usually try to give experiences but not knowing when things were going to open we wanted to give things this year that the kids could use. Hopefully he will like his gifts.
This Honey Cornbread paired well with the Texas Beef Chili – Slow Cooker (click for link to recipe) yesterday. I am usually not a fan of most cornbreads as I find them a bit dry but this one is my favorite.
Verdict: I love this cornbread! Warm with a bit of butter and honey drizzled over it was amazing! Everyone was eating the cornbread more than the chili. All I kept hearing through dinner was, “Is there anymore cornbread?” You know you have a hit then! I forget to make this and I need to get it back in our meals more. It is just remembering to pick up corn meal once in awhile.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir together, just until moistened.
