Blog Buster

Writing a book is a sure blog buster. I am barely walking my talk with lunches consisting of turkey slices, apples, and chocolate or simply a bowl of popcorn. My training schedule has also taken a dive, but I'm hopeful that all will be back on track soon.

I did bring in a good lunch to work last week to share with those who were at the lunch table--leftover Napa cabbage slaw and curried cornbread from book club. It was my mia culpa to all of those whom I have advocated the importance of a good lunch.

Today's Lunch
Curried Cornbread

1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup turbanado or raw sugar or 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp curry powder
1 onion, chopped
2 Anaheim peppers, chopped
1 cup milk
1/4 cup olive oil
1 egg

Mix dry ingredients except the curry in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Place olive oil in a large skillet and sauté the onion on low heat until translucent. Add curry powder and cook for about 3 minutes stirring occasionally. Add peppers and incorporate with the curried onions. Turn off heat and add milk and onion to pan and whisk. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients an pour into a greased 9 x 9 pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
