It's been a long week!!

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been missing in action this week. It has been such a bad week for me and I haven't been myself so therefor, no posting for me! I have been in such a funk this holiday season and I'm not really sure why. I hope this goes away soon ~ I don't like it!

I have been thinking about how I want to do this blog and I have come to the conclusion that it would help me to have a theme for each day that I post as I have seen on some other blogs. For instance, I have seen people post "Whatcha working on Wednesday", "Feast on Friday", etc. I think I may employ that same concept and that way I won't be floundering around trying to figure out what I want to post.

With that being said, I am going to post a recipe for yesterday's "Feast on Friday". Hey, better late than never, right???

Cornbread Salad

1 pan cornbread
1 large tomato, chopped
1 large cucumber, chopped
5 green onions chopped (I just use the green part but you could use the entire onion if you so desire)
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 16 oz bottle Hidden Valley Ranch dressing
1 small pouch of real bacon bits

Crumble cornbread evenly in bottom of 9 x 13 pan. Add tomato, cucumber, and green onions. Stir about 1/3 cup of the dressing into the cornbread and veggies and smooth out. Add beans and remainder of dressing. Top with cheeses and bacon bits.

O.k., I know this sounds like a very weird concoction but trust me when I say that it is one of the most delicious dishes I have ever put into my mouth!! My hubby loves it and begs me to make it often. It is very quick to put together and is a great dish to take to potluck dinners or to serve when company comes over. Enjoy!

Until next time. . .



  1. Thank you for sharing this recipe Donna! It sounds yummy to me! I will definately give it a try! I always like new recipes to try out for something different for my hubby and me to eat.

    I think your ideas on how to do your blog sounds really great!

    Take care now... Catch you again on here or over on the Country Sampler forum!

  2. Donna, that sounds very interesting, I'd love to try it. So is it more like a side dish? And it is served cold...correct? TFS!!

  3. Kitty,
    It is served cold and could be either a side dish or I do fix it as a main dish sometimes if we don't want a really heavy meal. It is really good! Let me know if you give it a try!
