Wow! My last post sure brought out all the cornbread lovers! LOL! Let's hear it for corn pone!
This is my favorite cornbread mix of late (Good ol' Martha White): My BFF Janet has been begging for my special recipe. Okay, you busted me! I have no special recipe, unless you count the one on the back of the package:
Some people like to add a tablespoon or four of sugar. I sometimes will layer some cheese in the middle of the batter as I pour it into the skillet. Yes, skillet. Iron skillet. I have no idea why cornbread seems to taste better baked in a cast iron skillet but will tell you this: it tastes even better when you heat the skillet before you pour in the batter. Love those crispy edges!
Good news! We found a van! We'll pick it up tomorrow. We decided on a 2004 Chevy Venture with about 78,000 miles on it. That's the same mileage that was on my now-extinct (we had it crushed) Windstar when we bought it. I'm hoping that's a good omen.
I've been cleaning house most of the day and it looks sooo like I've never touched it. Don't you hate that? Maybe I should let it get so rotten, stinking filthy that everybody will notice the difference as soon as they step foot in the door. (Suddenly remembering a few rotten, stinking, filthy houses that I've been in ... ) Never mind. I'll let it remain a thankless job, at least for right now.
Tomorrow is October 1. Another monthly Giftaway will begin and September's will have come to an end. Maybe the winner will be you! ;)
