It's All About the Food - Part I
Cornbread - one of our favorites around here! Yesterday I promised some recipes, and this is the one for today. Our daughter posted one at her blog, munchomom.com, several days ago, and it is a good one. However, I used a different one for this time. This came from a Southern Living magazine at least 30 years ago.
1/4 cup canola oil
2 cups plain cornmeal, white or yellow
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Add canola oil to 10-inch iron skillet; set in oven to heat.
Place dry ingredients in mixing bowl; add eggs and buttermilk. Stir until moistened.
Add oil from skillet that has been in the oven. (There may be a sizzle, but doesn't have to be). Stir to combine oil with batter.
I cut 12 slices from this. My husband puts the leftovers in the freezer and enjoys it regularly, thanks to the microwave.:-)
Our weather here has become much colder, and there is a mention of the slight possibility of some snow flurries in our area. I doubt that will materialize; however, there is snow falling in the mountains at this point, and everyone is happy there. The ski season is late because of our mild weather conditions.
Tomorrow - "It's All About the Food - Part II."
I really appreciate those of you who are following this simple little blog. Love to have your comments, too!
