and I continue to miss my Callie, she is at Jamie's - this one cannot risk tripping over her (
Maybe I would be fine...
Yesterday, because I do not like store bought sweets I baked my favorite Zucchini Bread
been a long time. This is the best recipe, been using for about 50 years and is a little different with crushed pineapple in it. Also Nan's brownies, the simplest recipe, I can mix with my whisk
makes a small amount. Guess I am addicted to this recipe. These recipes shared by me in the past.
On the stove yellow squash and onions cooking, green beans, potatoes, cabbage cooked yesterday and going to
1/2 a recipe of my old cornbread recipe. Cooking it differently, on the stove top in my grandmother's over 100
year old small cast iron skillet. She called it a hoecake but will be better than turning on the oven.
Also, beautiful ripe tomato's brought to me, will add cottage cheese. A simple, healthy country meal with an addition of
sweet ice tea.
always have loved to cook, once for a big family and now solo, need to cook for health
and trying desperately to gain 10 lbs I lost when leaving this home during the winter.
I cook small portions, enough for 2 days.
So, what is a hoecake? Google shares "it is a primitive form of cornbread"
the slaves made it. Googles image and I will make 2 hoecakes :) and cover with butter.
to me, since it was my grandmother's, she used it daily and it was given to me.
Can remember her saying "I'm going to make a hoecake" now I smile at her words remembered.
Remember this grandmother almost daily, my parents so young and she was the one who
constantly encouraged me onward and loved me with a love I shall never forget.
