We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

I have been a bit absent here, yet so very busy at work with a web-based software conversion that turned out to be a train wreck. Two years history lost at conversion upload. I needed to rebuild all the financial records in order to bill for services.

However, I am glad the project is far enough along for there to be a point of some sanity and I can resume part of normal life. And just to clarify, normal is very underrated! Needless to say, during this time we ate whatever the hand touched. It might have been leftovers, or if I was lucky, something I threw into the crock-pot before going to work for the day.

This smelled so good baking! 
Now I get to dig right in!

But today I had a bit of time and I found fresh broccoli in the vegetable drawer. Then I found this recipe over at Claudia's blog and wanted to give it a try with our favorite cornbread recipe as my starting point.

Cornbread with Broccoli and Cheddar
inspired and adapted from:  Claudia @ What's Cookin Italian Style Cuisine
425-degree oven

1 c cornmeal
1 c flour
1/3 c sugar
3 t baking powder
3/4 t salt
1/2 t granulated garlic
1/2 t oregano
1 t basil
2 T dried parsley

3 eggs
1/3 c oil or melted butter or bacon drippings (use what you prefer.)

heaping 2 c chopped broccoli, steamed until tender - I used 1 large crown.
1 c grated cheddar cheese

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients, stir well to combine. Set aside.

In a small bowl beat the eggs, beat in milk and oil. Stir in broccoli.

Add milk mixture and grated cheese to dry ingredients and stir together quickly, lumps may/will remain.  Scrape mixture into a 7X11 baking pan.

Bake 25-35 minutes or until tests done in your oven.
