I love cornbread and milk. We also call it Johnnycake and also Dodger

Let the corn bread get a couple days old, crumble it up on a plate then add lots of Bacon Gravy, damn thats good stuff.

DorGunR,

Yesterday I made some pinto beans and a big pan of cornbread.

I had a bunch left over, so about an hour ago I heated up a bowl of beans in my microwave for lunch. I got out my cornbread and put it next to my place where I sit at the table. I then went to the mailbox to get my mail while my beans were heating up.

And, my dog got my last piece of cornbread......................... :mad:

Growing up in poverty, we would get surplus cornmeal that my sister would bake into bread. She would often put corn in the batter, which was good. I also like it a little sweet. I thought you had a hangover from the thread title.

We ate cornbread all the time when I was kid! I hated it! It made me cough as I must have had some allergis reaction to it in the back of my throat. Just thinking about it makes my throat hurt right now.

How about supplying us Yankees with a real southern corn bread recipe?
You know the real McCoy, done in a cast iron skillet.
All I can find around here, is the stuff in the box that you bake in a pan.

And while You're at it, I could use a good biscuits and gravy recipe also.

I love southern cooking, but can't get it around here.
Fortunately, real homemade Italian cooking, (my other favorite) is abundant around here (especially in East Boston) it helps ease the pain.

Biscuits and gravy........Yum! Man! My friend's Grandma he lived with when we were kids made down home Biscuits a Gravy every Sunday. She grew up down on the Tennessee-Kentucky border and could that woman cook!

Every Sunday while my friend, his Dad and I would go to church she would get up around 5 AM to make all the food for the week. When we got back to their house around noon it was feast time! Being around 12-14 years old my friend and I were not shy about eating! We'd have Ham-n-greenbeans, Fried chicken, homemade MAC, eegs, bacon, sausage biscuits and gravy, pork roast, beef roast, paotatoes, noodles, and a bunch of other stuff in huge quantities!

To this day I have never known anyone to cook that much food like she did.

It also got me to go to Church with my buddy, because in order to go I had to stay at their place. :D We went to youth group actually and it was a lot of fun then we would come home and eat like pigs or teenage boys (I don't know if there is a difference).

My wife can make some mighty good tasting biscuits and gravy. Then, maybe a little side dish of some fried taters. Yum!

This is wicked strange (ayuh...Ima yankee)
I'd been hankering some cornbread lately... with some wicked good venison stew! This, complimented by some Samuel Smith's Old English Pale Ale would certainly rival any batch of pinto beans... not from a culinary standpoint, but based purely on methane output....
Beans are always better the next day.... WHY IS THAT???

We have about every 3-4 weeks and that was another regular in my house growing up.


We ate something called Gruel as well. Groud beef, cabage, onions, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, potatoes, spices, all diced and cooked together after you brown the beef. I hated it growing up, but I ate it. Now I like it a lot:D

Lentil soup with ham was another one.

Both of those were passed down from generations to be cooked a certain way.

I'm getting hungry!
