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)

Jalapeno Cornbread

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.

Lady Di,

When we woke up yesterday morning, the world was shrouded in cloud. Fog is not much here but in the Tennessee Mountains, it is awesome. I love Tennessee and everything about it.

Re your comment on my post about baiting hooks. Jordan actually tried to bait the hook yesterday but Brandon cannot stand to even see worms and bugs move around, let alone put one on a hook. It has something to do with his Asperger's, I think. He says they make his stomach all wiggly and that the make his head feel funny.

Please keep Brandon in your prayers. He is starting a med today for his Obsessive Compulsive Behavior and we're watching carefully for side effects. The meds are to stablize the chemical imbalance in his brain.

Blessings for a great Sunday.

Dear Dianne ~~ That foggy picture and then the snow scene in the previous post didn't do a lot for me. It is neither foggy or snowy, but it is darned cold here. Thanks for your comments and I am glad you enjoy the jokes. Connie (aka Meow) and I had a really nice visit, her second and she is so nice, you can see that by her smile. Her husband and daughter are nice too. Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

I am glad to hear Jordon tired and glad you are such a thoughtful Grandma concerning Brandon. I have my paws crossed for the new meds to work and not cause any problems.

Considering your location, I would have been surprised if you had not made it. Peace

Sorry it is sooo cold were you happen to be. It has been so Humid here that southern ladies no longer glisten but just sweat like a worker in the fields. Today and this week, we get a nice break from the humidity and for July that is an extra special treat. Glad you had a great visit with Meow.

Peace be with you today and always.
