nothing to do with rescue, but everything to do with good food.

i picked up some groceries today. i wouldn't be as excited as i am except i bought a packet of cornmeal bread mix...just add water, and egg and some oil and dump it in a 8x8 pan. i had everything except the 8x8 pan but i bought that so now i can make it. (deb has made it for me before, but not recently and i want some) there is a story behind my love for corn bread...maybe a boring one but there is one.
i graduated from high school when i was sixteen, not cuz i was smart but because i just loaded up on extra courses so i could graduate early. i lived in a small town, and i was pretty fed up with being 'father read's daughter" and wanted to be me, which at that time was a wanna-be hippie.
anyway, i graduated in january and immediately started working at McDonalds for a whole $1.03 an hour. i was trying to save up enough money to go and live with my very cool canadian boyfriend who had long hair and played the guitar. ( he would 30 years later become my still guitar playing ex who will get half my pension)
i worked with this very nice young woman who's name and face i cannot remember now but back in the very cold winter of 1974, she invited me to her apartment for dinner. she had this great garage apartment...very cool. and she served me homemade corn chowder and corn bread. i can still remember how good that meal tasted.
ever since then i have had a love affair with corn bread. and sometime this week, i am going to make some because i need more vegies in my diet and corn is a vegie and corn bread is a comfort food, and i am looking for comfort lately too...two proverbial birds with just one rock!.( and i will not share a single peice with any of the beasts either.)
