Blueberry Cornbread

I’m back from vacation!

Okay, so I’ve been back from vacation since Tuesday but I just didn’t want to admit it to myself. I knew that I was home the moment I stepped off the plane and found myself caked in sweat from the heat and humidity. And even though we started cleaning the apartment the minute we walked in the door, and even though I went back to work yesterday, I am just now admitting that my vacation is over.

I miss you, vacation.

Come back to me.

I made this Blueberry Cornbread for One Green Planet and I fed it to these little guys.

You know that’s not true. Not only because I’d never feed wildlife and blah blah blah, but because there’s no way I could make something delicious and then actually save it for a few days.

Blueberry Cornbread sounds weird, but it tastes like all those flavors are just meant to be together. Cornmeal and blueberries are soul mates, trying to find each other like those cute little mice from that 80s cartoon movie where they look at the same moon and sing that song that makes me cry. Do you know that movie?

Clearly I’ve missed you because I cannot stop with the rambling!

  1. Welcome back from vacation. I love blueberry cornbread. It’s my favorite thing to pick up when I am in Fresh Market. (Do you have one of those near you?) Now I have no excuse not to make it at home!

  2. You’re so right! Cornbread and blueberries are secret soul mates. I don’t know how I didn’t realize it before now. I put them in my polenta sometimes, which is a riff on the same idea. American Tail was definitely a tearjerker! “And even though I know how very far apart we are, it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star…”
