Chili commentary

Me: (after tasting The Wife's chili) "I don't know, it doesn't taste like it needs much of anything."

The Wife: "Cornbread."

T.: "Hate."

[laughter]

The Wife: "Ok, he's right it does need Hate more than it needs cornbread."

"Hate" is soooo strong. For a milder chili, use dislike.

Enjoy the misfiring of your neurons and dendrons

I'm going attempt to irritate everyone and say that my wife, who spent much of her childhood and adult years in the South, makes the best damn cornbread I've ever had. And not just by a little bit either. This stuff sends me into a feeding frenzy. None of that dryness that requires masses of butter and honey; it totally stands alone, though the masses of butter and honey are nice variations.

One of her tricks is to soak it overnight. I suppose me grinding it beforehand so it's totally fresh helps as well. I give her closer to corn flour than meal.

Tate said...

mmm that sounds good, but i agree that tons of butter and honey is always good...

Bentley said...

Kate!
I Agree!

well Mr "land ark nw" it doesn't irritate me, I just think she should make enough for EVERYONE, and we will all come over with some butter and honey and have a feeding frenzy there. or better yet - she should make enough for everyone and then ship it to us so we can all partake in it, or better still - send us the recipe so that I can make this for my husband!
