Football Sunday

The Chicago Bears are playing this afternoon at Seattle. I am expecting the Bears to win. The Bears are looking really good today and the starting quarterback of the Seahawks is out. I’ve invited a few friends over to watch the game. We have Miller Lite and Diet Pepsi on ice. We have chips and salsa, peanuts, homemade chili in the crock pot, and brownies for dessert. I’ll make some cornbread just before halftime. We are keeping it simple so we can enjoy a laid back, relaxing, Sunday afternoon. Go Bears!

Here is the cornbread recipe I have used for years:


1 egg
1 cup milk
¼ cup melted margarine or butter
1 cup flour
¾ cup corn meal
1 tsp. salt
2 ½ tsp. baking soda
¼ cup sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease an 8X8 inch baking pan. Blend flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl and set aside. Beat egg, milk, and melted butter in a smaller bowl until well mixed and add to dry ingredients in other bowl. Stir until just blended. Batter should be lumpy. Pour into pan and let sit for a few minutes. You can sprinkle a little sugar on top for a sweeter cornbread. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Spread a little margarine or butter on top and let it melt before cutting into slices.

This is an old 4-H recipe and is easy to prepare and delicious.
