She will remain nameless, lest she be deluged with requests for samples (unless she agrees to be outed.)
After reading her post on how she made cornbread with blue corn, I made a comment about how much I'd love to try that. Little did I know that a packet of her own mixture would show up in my mail. Due to work constraints and various vagaries of life that intervened, I didn't get to make it for almost two weeks.
May I say it was definitely worth the wait???!!!
The night before, we had steak for dinner, and I saved some of the beef to make soup for the next evening's meal. Soup and cornbread make one of my favorite meals, so last night when I came home from work, I mixed the cornbread according to my friend's instructions, as the soup re-heated.
Around here, cornbread always gets eaten quickly, but previous experience was nothing against which to judge this time!! We ate the whole pan in one sitting, except one slice that I saved (hid) for my lunch at work today! It has a marvelous texture and a slightly different taste than my regular cornbread (made with buttermilk.)
So, my incredibly generous blog friend, I want tell you how grateful I am for your friendship, your blog, and your cornbread! All of them have enriched my life over the last 4-5 years, and I am very glad I found you on the web! I'm still hoping for the possibility of meeting you in person someday.
