I Love Snow

It snowed during the night! One of my favorite things is waking up and finding snow on the ground. Mainly, I love it because it's so beautiful but there's probably a small part that goes back to the ol' school days when snow meant school was canceled.

I'm starting to feel a bit better! Not well enough to play in the snow outside but I can stare at it from the window. :o)

Last night I made some cornbread. I've never made cornbread before but I thought it might complement the veggie chili we were having for dinner. I used a recipe from Moosewood Restaurant: New Classics by the Moosewood Collective.

I followed the recipe exactly except that I used corn flour instead of corn meal, because that's all I could find.

I'm corn flour! Yippee!

I made the little well and poured in the wet ingredients.

Make a wish!

Presto Change-o! We've got cornbread.

It came out pretty tasty. It was moister than some cornbread I've eaten but still a bit dry. You know, the get-stuck-in-your-throat kinda dry. I don't know what can be done to make it more moist. Maybe dryness is just the nature of this bread. We did crumble some of it directly into the chili and that tasted pretty darn good.

Yesterday was a first for me too. I made a chocolate cake as an exercise during my meeting. We were paired up and were given the ingredients and told to make a cake. No receipe. And half way through we were told not to talk. So it came out better than I expected, but I couldn't give it away. It tasted okay to me but not to anyone else. The first cake I ever attempted and I succeeded at making a cake noone would eat. So I am sure your cornbread was much better. You don't get your baking skills from me.
