sweet mamas

Another day of play with friends.

Elliott into living room hockey with Asa, Sascha chasing Axel at high speed crawl and Joanna and I starting conversations that we may some day finish…co-parenting struggles, our love/suspicion of soulemama (I mean really, a sweater? just like that? practically overnight?), telling the truth, transitions.

I’m so grateful for my circle of sweet mamas, near and far. We ARE raising our children in community. This is our village.

And the cornbread. So popular with the boys that I want to share the recipe with you.
Adapted from my new favorite cookbook: Feeding the Whole Family, Cooking with Whole Foods by Cynthia Lair
Here’s the actual recipe:
Sweet Squash Corn Muffins
1.5 cups cornmeal
1.5 cups ww pastry flour
2 tsp bp
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup baked winter squashed
1/2 cup water or milk
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
2 tbs pumpkin seeds for topping
Preheat oven to 375, oil muffin cups or line. Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients separately (save mashed squash for baby).Add together with minimum strokes. Decorate tops with seeds. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

We used applesauce instead of squash and put it in rectangular tray. Delicious. We fed our little hockey players mouthful after mouthful through their goalie masks. They weren’t as into the lentil soup (which I thought was the best ever) from same book, but we liked it lots.
