I've really been looking forward to Friday.
Much as I love student teaching, I was tired Friday morning, so a weekend of sleeping in and relaxing was definitely something to look forward to during the day Friday.

To kick off my night, (after I went to the gym - success!), 
I went over to my friend Ben's house for chili.
And decided to make cornbread to share. 
This is my favorite recipe that my Mom always makes, so 
I thought I'd bring it to share. 
I also took some pictures, just to try out a cooking 'tutorial' like the ones
Ree Drummond features on her blog, The Pioneer Woman
The best part about this recipe is how EASY it is to make
 Ingredients you'll need....
1 14 cup Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 cup Cornmeal
1 cup Milk
1/4 cup Oil
1 beaten Egg

 Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
 Stir in milk, oil and egg, mixing until dry ingredients are moist
 Pour into a 8" or 9" greased baking pan and bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.
 And there you have it! Magic, delicious, easy cornbread. 

And one of the best parts - clean-up is super easy.
 So few things to wash, especially since I only used a 1/4 of a cup for everything. 

In addition to chili, I also caught up with some of the boys, and of course, had to have photos!
{Clockwise} Greve, Mumm, and Berger. Of course we don't use first names here!

I'm so thankful for the friends I've made during my college experience.
Some of the most unlikely people have given me some of the greatest memories. 

Enjoy your weekend!
