How could I pass this up? I'll fill out the form later, I'm in dire need of a nap at the moment.

And here we go again-yay!

I'm sorry you're feeling so rotten,janelleleigh.

But I have just made you something silly. And useless. And it kind of fits your requests....barely. If nothing else, it'll give you a giggle.

Hope you feel better soon!

I wouldn't mind a breather, but that's just me. I'm on the tail end of two swaps right now, and have to make up my mind today if I can do the Victoriana swap.Sheesh-I don't even look at the new swap ideas board anymore-I'm afraid to! It's just the ones I've been a part of leading to second rounds/new swaps with the same fun gang. And my notorius lack of anything resembling willpower. At the least, I'll be lurking merrily along!
This was indeed a very cool, fun swap.

Separated by a common language-too right! DH called me ducky today, and the all wise 11 year old rolled her eyes and informed me that was OLD british slang, nobody says that! I then inquired as to when she was last in England, and got more eye rolling.
Embarassing the kids-it's universal.(no, DH isn't english-he just likes to talk in accents for fun-annoying the DD is a bonus.)

I can make myself understood in four languages.
I speak American, some English,Aussie, and can get by in Canadian at a pinch. Grin

I think Antonio Banderus(However you spell it) is hot-is that strange? But yeah, I admit we're all suckers for a british accent.

And barking mad englishwomen are also odd, but loveable. Cheesy

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?
