Good Morning from the Hill. Prince took this photo one morning last week while I was busy in the kitchen. There is something about a foggy morning that just whispers "Good Morning."
The air got so heavy that it finally started coming down as rain last evening. I had just finished grilling, when the heavy rain began. I do being it is my Cherokee ancestry that makes grilling out so much fun and I do not care about the weather. I just dress accordingly.
Five O'clock Maggie got me up this morning and the sound of a slow rain just wanted to rock me back to sleep. It is suppose to rain most of the day. I would not mind it raining this way for a few days. Our water table is still low from last years drought.
Now for the Sunday Sharing (while everyone is sleeping)
2 cups self rising cornmeal
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 medium onion, chopped
1-4 oz can chopped Jalapeno or four fresh peppers chopped
2 cups (8 oz) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1- 16 oz tub sour cream
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1- 8 and half oz can cream style corn
Stir together all ingredients in a very large bowl. Pour batter into a greased 13x9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or 400 degrees for 45 minutes. If you use muffin tins instead of a pan it will take only 35 to 40 minutes to cook. Yields 12-15 servings.
I came across this recipe in July of 1998 in the Southern Living Magazine. You can use as many or as few peppers that you wish and also I have made it with different cheeses to just experiment. My opinion is Cornbread is GOOD ANY WAY YOU CAN GET IT.
This is the cornbread that we took to BIL ribs party. It is also mighty fine with soup.
I hope you cook up a batch and when you take a bite say "This is real Kitty Justice."
Y'all have a good day and remember God is always looking out his window.
