It was oh, so good man. This version was very simple and was found on the bag of my Old Mill corn meal. I preheated the oven to 400 degrees, greased my cast iron skillet with some vegetable shortening and put it in the oven to get nice and hot. Meanwhile, in a bowl combined 2 cups Old Mill self rising cornmeal, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon sugar, 2 cups buttermilk and 1/4 cup melted vegetable shortening. Once the oven was ready I poured the mixture in the pan (listened to it sizzle as it began to create that nice bottom crust) and baked for 30 minutes. Poured some honey on top of my slice and ventured into my own little heaven.
I have to keep a little of that shortening on hand, just so on that rare occasion I want to splurge and make something really naughty.
This is completely unrelated, but this kind of behavior from me shouldn't surprise you. I had to include it. Kind of like a little comic relief for a Monday. This is us as a family, Bella style. I am looking very motherly and proper while Chris is channeling a little Justin Beiber with his bling bling and "The Man" t-shirt. I really like the detail in the pants and I love how she draws the nose.
