What? You didn’t know there was a connection between the two?
Now if that title didn’t grab your attention right in here, I don’t know what would. Who doesn’t love cornbread? And yardsales? You know I do. So, when a friend tells you she is having a yardsale, you need to show up. This is my friend who had the sale the same day that I did. I got to preview on Friday and when I got there, THESE were waiting for me. My friend, Debbie, has a set of these cast iron cornstick cornbread bakers and I’ve told myself if I ever found some, I’d snap them up. And snap them up I did, for $4. And they’re already seasoned. They make some nice crispy cornbread sticks that are to die for.
Got all excited and tried them out, but I filled them too full, so they didn’t just pop out of there like they are supposed to. Next time, I won’t fill them so full. But, they were yummy. Really yummy, even if I did have to dig them out a bit. Here’s the buttermilk cornbread recipe I like to make. Very Southern. Found this one in our local paper and it’s really good and authentic, just like my mama makes.
Did you know if you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can add about a tablespoon of vinegar to your milk and it does the same thing? Just a tip for you!
Edited to Add: Look who has Lodge cornstick cast iron pans: Walmart and several others online too, in case you have to have one!
One more thing you should never pass up, a BIG face watch for $1. All it needed was a new battery. I love that I can see this without squinting.
Some of you will know what I mean! 🙂 And the rest of you, your time is coming.
