Skillet corn bread-for a non sweet version(but start with the sweet recipe posted first, since you're a newbie)You really ought to have cornbread of any stripe by itself to see how you like it, before you advance to cassaroles, and additives like cheese and peppers.Cornbread is also good served with chili.

Pour 2 tablespoons vegetable oil into a cast iron skillet. Set oven tp 425 degrees farenheit.Mix 1 beaten egg, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 cup cornmeal, 1 cup buttermilk. I never have buttermilk, I just put a spoon of white vinegar into regular milk and let it sit 5 minutes whenever I have a recipe calling for buttermilk.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes.I haven't made this for a while, I think you need to heat the oiled pan briefly before pouring in the batter.

My aunt's mint tea-
You need fresh mint-this stuff grows like crazy here. It calls for 4-5 springs of mint. When I pressed her for a definition of spring, she guessed8-10 leaves a stem, don't get too hung up on it.

1 3/4 cup sugar
2 quarts boiling water
4 tea bags(Heresy, I know)
1/2 or 1 cup lemon juice(I use 1 cup)
2 cups orange juice
Take water off burner, add the rest-stir well so the sugar dissolves.Let steep 25 minutes.Remove tea bags and mint, add enough water to make one gallon. meant to be drunk cold, but hot or cold works.
Spice tea version-leave out mint, add 2 allspice,5 whole cloves,1 stick cinnamon.

Roger Z.? Yeah, that Zelazny *is* dreamy.(Bats eyes).

Oh, yes, we're supposed to be crafting here, aren't we? Cooking is crafting, right? And I did make a fairy tale cookbook for this swap.
Sorry, fairies are horribly off topic, I know. Grin
Back to the gossip!

WHAT'S CORNBREAD?
Oh, Sulky, you poor deprived thing! I guess it's mostly a southern U.S. thing, at that. Along with sweet iced tea by the gallon.Yes, I love traditional hot tea, also. But when it's regularly over a hundred degrees farenheit in the summer, and humid as all get out, that iced tea is awfully good. My aunt gave me a good tea recipe that has orange juice, lemon, and mint in it-don't shudder, it's delish!
 Cornbread-well, it's made with cornmeal. You buy it in a sack, it's usually next to the flour at the grocery store, similar packaging. ou can buy boxes of cornbread mix, but it's not the same.You can make it traditionaly in a cast iron skillet, or make muffins, or fill a small (square pan. Some prefer it with a little sugar in the batter, I'm a purist myself, and like it without. But it's all good. Butter it, and eat it while it's warm.
Oh, I can't wait for summer now. Corn on the cob, fresh tomatos,blackberries....

Oh, and I splurged a little at lunch today-had a coupon for Gumbo a go go, had etoufee.
(Pokes pogo, looks innocent)

Ah, Sulky, it sucks to drag yourself to work when you feel like crap. I hope you feel better soon.

Bigs hugs all around! My maternal grandma passed on almost 20 years ago, and I still miss her. She's still my inspiration. Incredibly gentle and sweet, and tougher than iron nails.

And glad you joined us, Imagine!
I feel like high school, and we're all sitting at the nerd's table in the lunchroom.(Ducks spitwad). Only this time it's the cool kids being jealous of us.
And isn't Tommy over there just *dreamy*?

Okay, I had to be silly a little. Now, who wants to trade lunch?

1875  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Old ribbed women's tank tops on: May 20, 2008 06:47:26 PM
There's a tshirt reconstruction book called Tease. You might want to check your library for it; lots of ideas there.
One I remember was called the angora tee. They used an embroidery hoop to hold the fabric taut, them took the yarn and sewed a running stitch up every rib of the tank top. It looked fuzzy, pretty, and comfy when it was done.

Ooh, the Kitty series is good. And Mary Janice Davidson-aside from the vampires and werewolves, she has 2 series I really like. Drop Dead Gorgeous, and Hello,Gorgeous!-imagine going out partying with your buds, then waking up after the car crash to find you've been turned into a cyborg by a secret agency, and have to go after a *hot* spy.Very funny.
And the alternate history alaskan royal family series, The Royal Treatment, The Royal Pain, and the Royal Mess. Also very funny, and plenty of sex. Royal treatment was the first book my husband managed to read after his stroke a couple of years ago, when he had to relearn how to focus.(He's okay now,FYI)
Hee, I will always keep a spot open for swaps involving this crowd. Hmm, a sexy book swap-nah, the way we'd carry on, we'd get banned from the server. Grin

Oh, my yes, Laurell K.Hamilton(fans self).
It's funny that half the romance section now seems to be vampire related-with lots of werewolf,demon,witch, dragon, ect ect.
But one supernatural being is conspicous by it's absence.
Zombies.
That's right, zombies.
Is there a woman alive who hasn't longed for a man who would appreciate her for her brains?
