Tuesday Tidbits - Fixed Doors, Old Memories, and A Recipe For Cornbread

Today has been a long, but productive day...so long, in fact, that earlier I thought it had to be 9 or 10 o'clock at night and couldn't believe it when I looked at the clock and in was only 6:30! What??? 

Oldest son and daughter-in-law came over this morning. Rudy fixed my bedroom door (it's been dragging at the bottom since we laid the carpet when we first moved in) and put a new door knob on that works like it should...which is really nice...and he straightened the frame on the front door and weather-stripped it for me. That should help to cut the heating bill in future.

This afternoon I got started on the sunroom. That's where my husband's bookshelves and sermon notes are, as well as, totes of old photos and other stuff. It's been fun going through old pictures, but, my, oh, my! How I do love and miss my husband! 

As I was going through the pictures I kept thinking of the words to the theme from The Way We Were...

I also found the Christmas card that he gave me the Christmas Eve that he proposed. So special! 

I made a pan of cornbread this morning and enjoyed a piece with supper this evening. I haven't made cornbread in a long time. Here is my the recipe that I use...


1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt    
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cup milk
2 eggs

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and beat vigorously for 30 seconds. Pour into an 8x8x2 inch baking pan that has been sprayed with pan spray. Bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. 

In the late afternoon daughter-in-law, Nicole, and I went for a walk around the neighborhood while the grands rode their bikes. It was a nice day to get out and get some exercise for all of us.

Now, I'm settling down with a cup of tea and an episode or two of Little Men with Michelle Rene Thomas and Spencer Rochfort. 

Until next time...
