Sometimes you just run low.
That kind of reminds me of a kids song that I grew up with:
Do your ears hang low? Do they wabble to and fro? Can you tie ‘em in a knot? Can you tie ‘em in a bow? Can you throw them over your shoulders like a continental soldier? Do your ears hang low?
Name that show!
Like I was saying. You sometimes run low on ingredients.
Since my husband and I share a car, I have to be super-planner when it comes to groceries. No last minute trips to the grocery for me!
So, I was cooking vegetarian slow cooker chili and it NEEDED corn bread. It’s just a match made in heaven. But, I didn’t have any corn meal!?!? Ahhh!
I kept thinking, is it even POSSIBLE to make corn bread without cornmeal? I had never heard of such! To my pleasant surprise, this cornmeal-less cornbread tasted quite excellent!
So, next time you don’t have any cornmeal, make this cornmeal-less cornbread…why don’t cha?!?
