I am wandering around the Kitchen, and hungry to make something. Son is upstairs Not to Be Disturbed reading the New Harry Potter.I have Sophie Hawkins on, and I am humming, which means I will only offend my deaf dog. So here is my Gift to you tonight, a little Cornbread....passed down countless generations of Kentucky women served with Chili, or Soup, whatever your heart desires.And here is some Sophie for you, singing one of her best "Damn" songs....and fellas tell me is a girl in faded old jeans hot or not ? It doesn't matter....cuz with old jeans and cornbread on a Saturday Night you can't go wrong.
Cornbread Mix ( sue me it works great when doctored-better than some fluffyass Martha Stewart reciepe)
Can Creamed Corn-use .5 or more of can- not too runny.
Brown Sugar 2tables
Cinnamon-smidge and sprinkled on top
Maple Syrup- 1 tsps.
Evaporated Milk-1 tablespoon
water .5 to 3 quarters cup
Mix it all together, and it should be somewhat thick- like cement, slightly lumpy, but still smooth. Bake in a buttered pan and set oven to 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Eat hot- have butter ready.Great withPumpkin Butter or Apple butter. If Granny Ethel made it and you complained it was TOO Dry, she would serve you a shot of Bourbon and tell you to shut up. ( Yup, she was raised by moonshiners and rummrunners-all class).
ART: Imogene Cunningham self portrait made in 1915, kind of mystical, interesting.Looks almost like a Hippy photo from the Sixties.....There is a little Imogene in all of us...Victorian Hippy....
Have a Great Saturday Night.....
