Monday Night Martha, Jalapeno Corn Muffins
And since this is Monday Night Martha, we turn to Ms. Stewart for a cornbread idea to complement this pork fest. We are excited to find this recipe for jalapeno corn muffins from the March 2004 Martha Stewart Living.
The recipe calls for unsalted butter, buttermilk, eggs, sour cream, yellow cornmeal, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, coarse salt, 2 jalapenos seeded and finely chopped and fresh or thawed corn kernels.
At the party, the muffins seemed to be a success. Our host - who had been awake between 2:00-4:00 AM tending to the smoked pork roast - ate three.
The New Year was launched in foodie style with jalapeno corn muffins and slaw and crock-pot greens and homemade walnut bread and black-eyed peas and cold beer. And since our host's alma mater, Georgia Tech, would be heading to a bowl game, he even made some deliciously zesty yellow BBQ sauce he called "The Sting". Not a bad way to ring in the New Year.
