Recipes, for my son 
 
Just thinking that you might want
to have some family recipes…
 Cornbread is a good start 
since I just finished making some…

Your Grandmother Evans
made cornbread with half corn meal,  
half flour, one egg, & milk…
mix to pudding texture…

Cook at 400 degrees until done,
depending on pan, fifteen to twenty minutes…
If you preheat the oven before putting in the iron pan, 
you’ll get a golden bottom to the bread…


I modified that 
with ¼ flour, ¾ cornmeal, egg, 
I prefer buttermilk
rather than milk…

But milk will do
since I cook my cornbread 
in a small iron pan,
cups is the measure…

One of my Dad’s sisters
added 1 tablespoon mayonnaise… 
that makes a smooth
 textured  cornbread…

My Mother called it 
the ‘northern’ version… 
don’t know why…
since we all lived in the  South…

 I’ve used either
brand of cornmeal 
even used
cornbread  packages…
 
Whatever you  use
 be sure to eat some
 hot from the oven… as a sampling… 
butter applied… 

my Dad always
 had his hot cornbread
 crumbled in buttermilk… 
yuck, milk for me…

by the way, 
my creamed, mashed potatoes
has a tablespoon of mayonnaise added…
when you were not looking…  :D
