I seem to be making a lot of posts about recipes lately.
One reason could be I really haven't gotten down to the business of redecorating the house after Christmas and I've been spending
too much time pinning recipes & other great ideas. Most spaces & shelves are sparsely decorated with stuff just to make it look like somebody lives here.
Anyway, back to the subject of food.
Yesterday I cooked a mess of beans for our evening meal.
Sometimes when I cook beans I add a can of Rotel to spice it up, but this time I just used salt, pepper, garlic powder, worcestereshire sauce & ham chunks.
I also baked a pan of cornbread using a new recipe from Pinterest.
Buttermilk Cornbread Recipe
3/4 cup butter - melted
3 eggs - slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.
Bake at 400 degrees F. for 23 to 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. I baked mine for almost 40 minutes because the first time I cut into it wasn't done. Lately I've been thinking my oven isn't working right.
I didn't have any buttermilk & had planned on making my own by adding a little white vinegar. Oops, I didn't have any. I just added 2% milk.
The cornbread was wonderful & the beans very tasty.
Of course we'll be eating beans & cornbread for several days, which means I won't have to cook.
I love leftovers!
