Quick Cornbread With Dinner
The other night, my family and I had soup for supper, and I was wondering what else to make with it. I was thinking of blueberry muffins, but that didn't sound right. I decided on cornbread, and that was the right choice. Cornbread went well with the bean and vegetable soup that my mom and I made. It didn't take long for me to mix up the cornbread and bake it. It tasted great.
I added flaxseed to the instructions, not the ingredients because it is optional. The recipe doesn't call for it, but since I love it, I added some to the cornmeal, and it was great. You can't even tell that it is in the mixture. So you can add some to anything that you eat.

Nothing goes better than cornbread with a big pot of homemade soup. I have a favorite recipe that I have used for years. I always make it in a cast iron skillet.
