A SNOW DAY AND A SWEET CORNBREAD RECIPE FROM STONE HILL COTTAGE
There is nothing more exciting for a child than to wake up in the morning and look out the window to find that Mother Nature has brought fresh snow. That’s exactly what happened when my cousin,s kids spent a few days at Stone Hill Cottage.
The little kids & big kids alike couldn’t wait to get outside to play in it.
A snowball fight quickly ensued…
with the kids facing off against their dad.
Chinese exchange student Mia got to see the California mountains for the first time.
I think she’s going to take back lots of lasting memories.
And dad Sean proved that big kids can have fun at Stone Hill Cottage too!
Our 1 acre of gentle slope on Stone Hill provided the perfect spot for sledding.
It also helped that dad Sean carved out the perfect path.
The only problem was they had to trudge their way back up the hill for another run.
So after about a hundred times of doing so they decided it was time to make a snowman. I can’t decide who’s cuter, the kids or their snowman!
Eventually frozen fingers & toes got the better of them and it was time to come inside.
Hot cocoa and sweet cornbread made the perfect comforting snack.
And I’ve got just the recipe for Sweet Cornbread. It is the perfect accompaniment for my Mac and Cheese Chili, goes great with Soup & Salad, or makes a terrific snack. Here it is…
- 4 Eggs, Beaten
- 2½ Cups Milk
- ⅔ Cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 Cube Butter (1/2 Cup), Melted
- 3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
