Hockey Players Are Dumb…













I can say that because I am one. We have a rather stupid mentality of when something is broken or injured we just “tape it”. “Tape it” is probably the most used phrase there is in hockey. And so I taped it…my foot that is. Slammed a beer and went out and played. Now I’m not totally stupid, I did try and skate on Friday to see if I even could. I couldn’t stand on my skates if it was just a regular surface, but I had no problem skating on ice…so skate I did. Oh sure it was sore but not painful. And so like all moronic hockey players I played today. Not well, but not bad. I was more out of shape than anything…sitting on your ass for a month can do that…and there is nothing like a hockey game to let you know that you are out of shape.
And speaking of sitting on my ass, my foot injury has allowed to me to spend many an hour organizing my recipes. This has been great as I have found a few of my staples that I have been looking for. One of those was corn bread. Every since it went to hang out with my lost socks and keys I have been stuck trying corn bread recipes on various sites, never being happy with the results. They were almost too salty and just never seemed right to me or my hubby. So it was a happy day for me when I came across my double corn bread muffins. These babies are on the sweet side, containing 1/3 cup of sugar, but consider the source and her love of sugar :).
My foot as of now is doing fine…that is after enough beers that I am torturing the dog by singing Carpenters songs to her :P The real test will be tomorrow.

P.S. I know some of you are trying to comment but are getting nothing but a picture of cornbread when you send it…I have no idea why but I will sick my husband on it. Keep trying it might just be WordPress having issues this morning.

  1. Wow, cornbread is just most lovely thing. Those look incredible and so moist, which you know can be hard in getting cornbread to be.

    I am putting your recipe in my folder right away, and will tell everyone it is called “Peabody’s Dumb Hockey Player and Carpenter Singing Cornbread.”

  2. Those muffins look delicious !

  3. yowzah. that looks divine. I love adding syrup to my cornbread. and I’m certainly of the ‘sweet’ cornbread camp as well.

  4. Ha, that title killed me! I live in a town that has an OHL hockey team and back in high school I used to sit beside one the players in math class. It was his second time taking the class and the only reason he passed was because he copied all of my tests.

  5. The muffins look great! I love cornbread too and on the sweet side like you, haha a rhyme! I also top my cornbread with some maple syrup, even more sweet!

  6. I don’t bake much, but I do eat!
    Your photos are fantastic!
    Good luck on DMBLGiT

  7. One of the best corn muffins I’ve seen!

  8. Hi Peabody – I love the sweeter versions of cornbread (we also call it Johnny Cake). I have never added corn kernels to it, but I bet it gives it a great texture!

  9. They look superb (those little bits of corn in the cut cross-section drove me a little nuts with LOVE!) and I can see them going down well with me! Glad to hear that the foot is doing a bit better – though perhaps the pooch could do with a little TLC now that she’s had to endure the Carpenters ;)

    J/K, much love for the Carpenters here! Well, the Carpenters and these muffins!

  10. Yum! These look great! Did you put honey on the one on the bottom? That’s what it looks like…my dad’s best friend likes honey on his cornbread and I must admit, it’s pretty good. Hope you foot gets better quickly and you can return to the wonderful world of hockey!

  11. What a great post! I giggled at the “Tape It”(b/c I know so many hockey players). The muffins look dee-lish!

  12. You crazy girl – hockey on a weak ankle/foot!!

    Oh well, it’s very good that you are back at it!

    These cornbread muffins look SO good. I like em sweet too. :)

  13. You can make even corn muffins look lucious!
    But, as a southerner I have to say. That is Yankee cornbread! Sugar? NO Sugar in cornbread!
    (but, I may try it and call it dessert)

  14. Claire- yes that is honey, I either put honey or maple syrup on mine.

  15. Peabody you are suppose to be taking it easy. What is this about trying to get back in your skates!
    Make more corn bread muffins, freeze and then send them to me :).
    And stop torturing your dog with your singing ;)!

  16. That looks so moist and yummy! I keep scrolling back up to look at it!

  17. MMM…that must taste so damn good toasted!

  18. what a delicious looking muffin-take care of that foot!

  19. Delicious looking muffins! Is that last picture of them with honey on them? Looks fantastic!

  20. YUM, I NEED a good corn bread recipe! Thank you!

    I live in WA too! And I don’t play hockey but I took up indoor soccer and love..d it, until I sprained my ankle and how! I feel your pain!

  21. I made your muffin recipe yesterday and really liked it! (Hubby – aka the antiFoodie – didn’t like that it had real corn in it – well, to that I say “More for me!”). Although my muffins did not rise nearly as high as yours, they had a nice texture and taste. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    My mom was looking for a cornbread recipe (she’s never made it before) and I sent her this recipe. She loves it so much that she’s made 4 batches in 2 weeks and forwarded the recipe to everyone she knows. Now my mommy loves me. ;) Thank you!!

  23. “muffing tin” lol

    i’m about to make these–will report back

  24. simply delicious…deliciously simple. And I’m also a dumb hockey player, so that’s proof of how easy it is. Thanks!
