Mexican Corn Bread , Stephen Small's Newest Skills, and Short Blog Break

Isn't weather crazy?! Hot...cold...humid...cool...kinda hot...freezing. It is all over the place. This time of year in the South you never know if you will need to wear a tank top or a winter coat. I so welcome the days that actually feel like fall. Sunny and cool.

I imagine that during these cool snaps you are embracing huge pots of warm chili, soups, and stews. If you are looking for something to go with them, then boy do I have a recipe for you...Mexican corn bread. I made it the other night with chili. Both Stephen Grande and I ate about 5 pieces of corn bread and a small bowl of chili. It was so good that it stole the show from my main dish...so you might want to double the recipe if you are making it for more than 2 people!


Ingredients:

2 eggs
8 oz carton of sour cream
1 can cream of corn
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 and 1/2 cups corn meal
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 or 2 tablespoons of diced jalapeno peppers from a jar (depending on your desired hotness)
1 cup of grated extra sharp cheddar cheese

*based on the recipe from Southern Sideboards

Mix all the ingredients except for the cheese. Then pour half of the batter in a greased 8X8 baking dish. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the grated cheese onto batter. Then pour the remaining batter on top and finish off with the rest of the cheese. Bake at 350 degrees in the oven for 45-50 minutes.

In addition to yummy cool-weather-food we have enjoyed some long walks these days. I love to bundle Stephen Small up in his stroller. Sometimes we walk with friends, but yesterday it was just me and my little walkin' buddy.
When we got home, he showed off some of his newest growth and development milestones...pulling up! I told him "Stephen Small, you are too little to be doing that." He didn't listen.

Anyway, I've been pretty busy this week...following him around, supervising his every move. And that is why I am taking a short blog break (just a few days, a week at the most). I need to clean, simplify, organize, and BABY PROOF! Plus I'm going to my Alma mater this weekend and my cousin Bibba is coming in town to teach me how to sew.

See ya sometime next week!
