A little more than just cornbread…

Pain de Maïs d’Herbe de Fromage de Jambon - now doesn’t that look and sound better?!  But really what I made was buttermilk cornbread with herbs, cheese and ham.

Start with 4 large eggs, beaten.

eggs

Add one cup cultured buttermilk.

milk

Add 2 TBSP melted butter.

butter

Add about 1/3 cup olive oil.

oil1

Mix well and add  2 cups cornmeal (yellow only please! – you do not want anemic looking cornbread!) ,

cornmeal1 1/2 cup all purpose flour,

flour

and 1 TBSP baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda

bpoweder

Salt and pepper to taste…

saltpepper

Mix well and add 1 cup graded cheese – whatever kind you like.   This is cheddar and jack.

cheese3

Dice a “hunk of ham” -whatever you think is enough…this ended up being probably 2 cups.

ham4

Add herbs of your choice, I chose chives…cause I love ‘em!

herbs

Pour into a HOT, greased cast iron skillet or other prepared baking dish.  I prefer cast iron for cornbread.  And if you heat it before pouring in your batter, it gives you that crunchy dark crust on the bottom and sides!

Bake at 400  for about 30 minutes or until it tests done.  And Viola!! Supper! Quick and easy and yummy!

done


Update on Husband: He landed in Paris, is on the way to his hotel and will call when he gets there and give me all his ticket information.  I believe I can get him on an earlier flight home tomorrow and that would be great!

Thoughtful Thursday

I am trying to keep my chin up today.  It might be a little difficult.  My phone rang at 4 am this morning.  It was Husband.  His flight out of  Tunis had been canceled and he was waiting on the next one…something about birds damaging the plane upon landing or something.  I don’t know – all I heard was I will be Friday getting home.  Then my ears started ringing and my eyes watering.  I am THANKFUL he didnt get on the plane only to find out after the fact it was damaged, you know?  But still.  I am disappointed to say the least.  I am fairly certain he caught the next flight and he will spend the night in Paris and head home, same flights just different day.  I am anxious to hear that he made it to Paris safe and sound. His plane should land any minute.  I suppose if you have to get stuck somewhere, there are much worse places than Paris!

I am preparing some other posts for today since my whole day’s schedule has been changed.  And I will try to be more cheerful in them!
