Dear Cornbread Diaries...

As you know dear Diary, I have been on a quest for a healthier lifestyle most of my life and lately I'm findin' great success with eatin' more vegetarian dishes. Not only have my derriére and grocery bill been goin' South but upon deletin' dairy products from my diet I have noticed no more terrifyin' lactose intolerant episodes. Hallelujah! I simply must share my latest cornbread (and vegan too, I might add) concoction...

How to make Country Veggie Curry over Curried Cornbread Cakes
4-5 servings in less than 30 minutes:
For the cakes:
1 (7.5 oz) box of cornbread muffin mix
1 teaspoon Tandoori Masala Seasoning from the health nut store (or use half coriander and cumin)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 Tablespoons oil
More oil for fryin'
For the curry:
3 Tablespoons oil
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
2 carrots, slices thinly
1 large jalapeño, chopped and leave the seeds in for spice!
1 heapin' teaspoon Tandoori Masala Seasoning (or use half coriander and cumin)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large Roma tomatoes, diced
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1/2 cup coconut milk
1. Mix the muffin mix, seasoning, salt, coconut milk, and 2 Tablespoons oil together in a small bowl.
2. Heat some more oil in a large 10 inch iron skillet. Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls and fry til done turning once. Set aside.
3. In same skillet add 3 Tablespoons of oil and sauté onion, carrots, and jalapeño while also adding  the seasoning and salt until tender or about 5-6 minutes.
4. Add the tomatoes, garbanzo beans, and coconut milk. Heat till hot and bubbly throughout.
5. Arrange 3-4 Curried Cornbread Cakes on a plate and heap some Country Veggie Curry all over. Garnish with extra jalapeño.

Looks yummy! 

Till next time, 

Love, Di

Dear Cornbread Diaries...

Goodness gracious! Has it been almost two months since my last entry?? Question: Whatever have I been doin' with my sweet little ole time?? Answer: Only workin' on all my other blogs and neglectin' you terribly! Sooo sorry but to briefly catch up I must link to one of the most scrumptious cornbread delights I have ever concocted if I do say so myself, Vegetarian Green Bean Fritters with Luscious Fontina White Sauce! Still workin' hard on that vegan thing but simply loving the vegetarian lifestyle!

Oh, and I have been doing a little socializing at the Crescent Hotel as well!! Check out my blog adventures there...Blogging Adventures at the Crescent Hotel. And, I certainly can't sign off with out braggin' about our new Louvre quality art museum right here in the Southern Ozarks! You must check out what I had to wear to this grand event...What I Wore To Crystal Bridges.  Now, I'm tired of talking about me, me, me... do tell me what do you think of me??? Just kiddin' but, I do love your comments!

Until next time, sweet diary...Love, Di
