Make. This. Now.

Make. This. Now.

Seriously.

I made Emily’s White Cheddar Yogurt Cornbread as a side dish for dinner tonight and I’m pretty sure it stole the show. Derek went back for seconds (and thirds) and I made sure to savor every crumb on my plate.

The cornbread was very moist and had this wonderful balance of sweet and salty (as every cornbread should!). I loved how the melted cheddar added a level of cheesy flavor without over doing it.

I’m not kidding when I say you have to make this now. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had a bit of a corn theme going with the menu tonight. My main dish was a Corn Soup loosely based on this recipe.

Only I served the soup hot, subbed out the white potato for a sweet potato, added shrimp (after blending) and served with sharp white cheddar and spicy peanuts.

It felt good to busy myself making dinner in the kitchen and actually make a real meal as opposed to just random bowls of vegetables. It also feels good to have food in the house again. Derek and I brought home a massive haul of groceries from Publix this afternoon. Now, I actually have choices of food to work with!

After we were done shopping I had a gigantic Apple with Honey Peanut Butter.

And after dinner, a shortbread cookie sandwich for dessert.

Derek and I brought Mario Kart today and haven’t been able to pull ourselves away from it. He’s been kicking my butt so far, but I’m hopeful that will change. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Good Night!

Good Morning! ๐Ÿ™‚ And Happy Memorial Day! For the life of me I couldn’t remember what I was doing last Memorial Day. Usually Derek and I take advantage of three day weekends with quick trips, but this year we decided to stay home and I couldn’t remember if we had made the same decision last more ยป
