Back in mid-January I posted about making scratch cornbread. It truly is something I enjoy. A lot.
Strange as it my seem, I think I enjoy the baking as much as the eating.
I did it again. And I’m posting about it again. And I’m not sorry!
I like the photo I took while I had this yummy stuff cooling on the kitchen table. It turned out very well. And it was just the thing to broaden my breakfast choices for this week!
I hope life is going well for you these days. Your kitchen life. Your life in general.
Just eat it up!

Well, you see, I was up a bit after midnight last night. Oops, that would be a bit after midnight this morning, to be more accurate. Up baking scratch cornbread muffins.
And it made me so frickin’ happy when I realized that the shoe box-size leftover container that I sometimes use to store cutlery is the perfect size for six muffins when you bust ’em out of the muffin pan!
Not at all sure what that means about my thoroughly mundane life, but it was just about two steps short of complete ecstasy when I realized that and starting tossing the still-warm muffins in, thereby fulfilling their obvious destiny!
Doesn’t take much to make me happy these days! I guess that’s not a bad thing…

This is a quick blog posting to say that I do hope this brand-new year of 2018 has gotten off to a good start for you! You just might feel–as I do–that 2017 was so awful that this year has just GOT to be better! If so, I think we’re both right!
I did not say a word about the new year on Monday when it was new new, but I ushered it in with some perfectly-cooked black eyed peas with onion, garlic, ham and Bulldog’s special seasonings! And some scratch cornbread which also could not have been better!
And, no, I did not have any champagne, but some ice-cold Coors in those awesome retro-looking bottles worked just fine.
So far the new year’s going alright. The best thing I’ve done so far is today’s trip to our Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area. Had a fine time and got a few good pix; I’ll have a couple of them up here in a new post very soon.
Please accept my best wishes for a safe, fun and thoroughly-amazing 2018! And I hope you get to spend some of it doing some cool stuff outdoors!
