Happy Monday friends! Did you spend your weekend cooking away and running to the grocery store too many times? I totally did. I should just move into the produce section at Sprouts and make it official. I think I went to the store five times, which is possibly my new record. I just really love hanging around the veggie aisle, man.

Speaking of stores, have you ever heard the song Same Old Lang Syne by Dan Fogelberg? If not, you’re missing out on a real treat. It’s possibly the worst song I’ve ever heard, but it came on the Christmas station today and I laughed out loud at the first line: Met my old lover in the grocery store. He proceeds to talk about how he found her int he frozen food aisle. SO yeah, this horrible song is probably how I’ll meet my husband one day, except we will meet next to the produce in Sprouts. And we won’t ever sing about it–I’ll forbid it.

I do firmly believe that now is the time to begin listening to Christmas music, even if it is slightly before Thanksgiving. I like to give myself a solid month and a half to enjoy the songs, so I usually begin November 14. I want to be good and over with all Christmas music by January 1. Besides, how can you not like Christmas music? I feel like the type of person that doesn’t like Christmas music is the same type of person who doesn’t clean up their dog’s poop in public places. Total grinches, the lot of them.

In other news, this Paleo cornbread is ROCKING MY WORLD FRIENDS. Its like Christmas music, but better. YES! I swear it’s possible. It has even passed the taste test of non-Paleo human beings, so I know it’s good. I’ve even seen those people reach for seconds, so I know they weren’t just being polite.

I plan on trying to make Paleo Cornbread Stuffing out of this recipe, so there may be a Part 2 coming soon. The problem is that I keep eating all of the cornbread before I have time to make the stuffing. It’s not my fault I’ve been deprived of corn for so long.

On a technical note, I used Thrive Market coconut flour in this recipe, which has quickly become my favorite coconut flour. It’s also super cheap! You can’t beat Thrive Market prices, man. I’m definitely using Thrive to stock up for all of my holiday baking, and you should totally do the same!
