Christmas Cheer and Corn Bread...

 One of our best gifts of 2013 was developing friendships through the French exchange program our family participated in.  While meeting and living with Elise was the highlight of the summer hanging out with these two ladies was an undeniable treat!  Christine, the director of the Easy English for All Program, was visiting from France and Rachel, the program's American liaison, could resist hosting a little cozy dinner to celebrate the occasion and the season. I am not sure how I ended up invited to this one, but I sure did feel lucky to be there!
I made a little Creole Donut appetizer and our hosts served up a ridiculously good gumbo and Rick whipped up the best corn bread I've ever eaten in my life.  Seriously, it was that good!  They sent me home with some leftovers and I have been  lovingly drying them out for use in a stuffing for my Christmas dinner; not a crumb of that precious bread should go to waste.
