"Wednesday Wee Ones...and Kitchen FUN"

We have been shopping for new kitchen items for our condo!
My hubby actually LOVES to shop at the kitchen store even more than I do!
When we go to Myrtle Beach, he always spends time buying gadgets
and spices at the big stores there.
He even went online and bought spices and he COOKS!
I know.......I am SO lucky!


(and he's making his famous chili tonight! YAY!)

One day he even picked up something for Wendy at the kitchen store!


Is this FUNNY...well she is still crying so I guess not! heehee!


And awhile back I was reading a blog about putting together a nice pantry
and having measuring cups for both dry and wet ingredients
and I thought this was a great idea!
I've bought 2 new sets of measuring cups but now I've forgotten who gave me that tip!
I hope they read this and come forward so that I can link to their blog!


I made cornbread to go with the chili..........here's the recipe!


And of course, it's better baked in a cast iron skillet in a HOT oven and browned on top!

Happy Wednesday!
Take time to PLAY!

You know it is amazing, we both make the same kind of foods, and we both like faeries, and Mrytle Beach is one of my favorite vacation spots, I use to go there all the time with my family when I was a kid. Maybe your the sister I never had.

My hubby cooks, too! The only problem is, I'm mostly vegetarian and he isn't! I love cornbread and especially when it's baked in a cast iron skillet like my grandma did.

I just love husbands that cook (lol!). Funny too because my husband was just saying the other day he wants to make chili. Now you have me craving cornbread (i don't own an iron skillet though). I think it's a form of comfort food in the winter, don't you think?
bon appetit!

First off let me say YUMMY ..the cornbread looks delicious! Second, a husband who cooks ...VERY lucky. Third ...what a great tip! Two sets of measuring cups; one for wet, one for dry. Now who would have thought of that? Great idea!
Fourth ...Wendy looks stunning with her new kitchen gadgets!

OH My! I could eat that whole pan of cornbread. (Not really, but would love to try!) That's exactly the way my mother made it. ♥

I love the little sock monkey your doll is holding!
I'm at Mom's and we are heading out to a matinee of "Slumdog Millionaire"!
