`1.)  Basketball.  Can’t beat it.  It’s in full swing for all four kids.  Thankfully half of our kids play on the same team and it will be that way for 3 years.  How sweet is that?

And finally we took advantage of last year’s Christmas gift and got Landon some personalized basketball shoes.  They are supposed to arrive December 22nd.  What I wouldn’t give for him to forget about them so I could wrap them up and put them underneath the tree for him this Christmas.  Think that will work?

Cornbread Muffins

Yellow Cake Mix

2 Jiffy Cornbread Mixes

4 eggs

1 cup water

2/3 cup milk

4 TBSP vegetable oil

Mix all together until just combined.  Fill your Mary & Martha square baking cups 2/3 full.  Place cups directly on baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 22-25 minutes or until middle of muffin cup is set.

Serve with butter, honey, or white corn syrup.  But honestly, they are good and perfectly sweet just on their own!

    • I have an All-Clad 7 quart that I just got a couple of months ago and I LOVE IT!!! It gives you options to start on High and go to Low. Also you can start on Low and when it’s done cooking it automatically goes to WARM. 🙂
