American Flag on the Moon

Every now and then we all need a little motivation. Some motivation to get us through the day, week, or even year. Country singer Brad Paisley’s “American Flag on the Moon” is the perfect inspiration and pick me up.

Just remember when you are going through a tough time, there is nothing you can’t do, because, after all, there’s an American flag on the moon.

Happy Thursday!

Southern Cornbeard

Been stuck in the house these past few days, due to the winter storm? If you are like me, you are probably starting to get cabin fever. An easy cure for this “disease” is to cook.

Hopefully this quick recipe for cornbread will make it to your dinner table tonight.

Ingredients:

  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup plus 3 Tbsp. plain yellow cornmeal
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet (cast iron is the best). Once melted, set aside for now.
  3. Whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt in a bowl.
  4. Mix eggs and buttermilk in a separate bowl. Then, combine with dry mixture until smooth.
  5. Add in melted butter
  6. Pour batter into skillet. Bake for 30 to 33 minutes or until golden brown.

Enjoy!

Country Belle Chic’s Fall Bucket List

fall

Fall- my favorite season of them all! We are TWO days away from the start of the season and every year, there are several things I MUST do before it ends, so here is my fall bucket list:

  • Tailgate at a football game.
  • Go apple picking.
  • Buy school supplies.
  • Watch Halloween movies.
  • Decorate with tons of pumpkins and DIY fall crafts.
  • Travel through the mountains to see the leaves.
  • Visit the county fair.
  • Carve a pumpkin.
  • Make an apple pie, apple butter, apple pie, and homemade apple sauce. (Can you tell I like apples…alot?)
  • Stuff myself during the holidays.
  • Go on a hayride.
  • Eat s’mores at a bonfire.
  • Wear a hoodie, while snuggling up with a cup of hot chocolate.

It’s fall, y’all!
