I made fried cornbread two nights ago to go with our homemade vegetable beef soup (mine had turkey!). Man was it good. I also found out that I think my blender is going out on me. I have only had it like, 20-25 years. You think it would last longer than that. GEEZ! Don’t they make anything to last anymore? The blender issue has nothing to do with the fried cornbread. Anyone have a favorite blender they like? I am on the hunt!!!!!!
Now…..for this fried cornbread. I have always made mine with two ingredients. Self-rising cornmeal and very hot water from the faucet. That is all. I have seen so many recipes using boiling water and tried it a while back and don’t like it as well. The consistency is different. So this time, back to my regular, good old, recipe. But this time, I added one more thingy….some chopped jalapeno peppers – the kind from the jar. Man, did it kick it to another level! YUM-O!
AND….. I sliced off a “pat of buttah” and added to the skillet with each new batch – I think it gave them a great crispiness and added another level of flavor……(sorry – the lighting above my stove is not the best…if I would remember to turn the overhead light on it may help….)
what do you think??? You can see those jalapenos in there! Sure was good with that homemade soup(s).
NOW – back to the blender – I will be looking at getting one in the next few months – do you have a new, spiffy updated one? Or are you in need of one, also? Let me know what you think a good one is…as you can see, I have not shopped for a blender in quite some time. Have a good day!
