Cornbread Goodness

Oh.My.Goodness. Oh my yummy goodness! Craig and I both agree, I have found the best cornbread recipe! If you would like it too click here. It really has to be the world's best! So that's what we had for supper tonight, along with some chili, which in comparison, was the 'supporting role'.

Well, that's what Craig and Eli and I had anyway. Poor Gage went to bed with an empty tummy. He immediately pushed his bowl away when I sat it down in front of him. I even picked out most of the beans and tomatoes ahead of time so it was mainly just yummy hamburger goodness. But he didn't want any, or any of the leftovers that I offered from last night's pasta dinner. All he wanted was the cornbread. Yes, the boy takes after his mama, the carbs are his favorites too. But he was not allowed to have any until he had just one bite of meat or veggies. Well the child is very strong-willed and I am very weak, especially when he is looking at me with big teary eyes saying "peeees". I must say, if it wasn't for my strong, grounding husband, I would have given in. But he reminded me that we can't let Gage have his way, which is an on-going battle in all arenas right now.

So tonight I had a heartbreaking tough love moment, that I hope pays off eventually. And I had some delicious you've-got-to-try-it cornbread. I hope Gage gets to try it too before it's all gone.

Good job!! Sticking to your guns is soooooo important. I know how hard it is, but you are teaching very important lessons and you must start now!! He will learn. It is so true that it always hurts the parents far more than the child. Keep up the good work! And I look forward to trying your cornbread-- thanks for sharing!
