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. πŸ™‚

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.

Yum. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜‰

Good Night!

Wow, that cornbread does look good! I spent most of my life thinking I hated cornbread, and I tried it again last year and realized that I actually loved it. This looks way better than the kind I made!

Yum!
Mario Kart is super addictive. We played for like 3 weeks straight when we first got it. I beat the entire thing in just over a month so now I have to entertain myself by playing other people online. God I sound like a huge loser writing this!
Enjoy!

oh my heavens that cornbread looks amazing! πŸ™‚

I have never made cornbread with yogurt before but always love adding yogurt to quick breads so it makes total sense!

My siblings and I used to play mario kart all the time, it is totally addictive! πŸ˜›

Mario Kart is so much fun! Although I think we;re burnt out — we played so much when we first got it.

Doesn’t it feel good to put time into your meal? Last night I had a friend over for dinner – usually when I’m by myself I don’t try as hard. Mario Kart ….AWESOME!
