Sounthern Homecooked Meal

This is more like a fall meal, but it's easy and yummy. Ham, beans, and cornbread (from scratch.) I am loving summer. We haven't gone on our vacation yet....but in some ways I'm missing fall already. I'm drinking coffee today, making this delicious autumn meal, and listening to my Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosy, (and many more great singers) mix of music. I LOVE it!
I was browsing through my recipe cards looking for my cornbread recipe that I got online months ago. I thought I had found it when I realized that it didn't call for sugar. It was another cornbread recipe that we had tried but didn't like as well. We like it a little sweeter. So I got on the computer and started looking for the long lost recipe. I looked and looked and couldn't find it. I was getting sad; so I went back to my recipe cards and I FOUND it! I was so happy. My whole family LOVES this recipe. It is the best cornbread I've ever tasted! We used to use Jiffy, which is great, but I love making things from scratch. I don't remember where I got the recipe, but here it is:
-Mix together....
-3 1/2 tsp baking powder
-1 cup flour
-1 cup cornmeal
-2/3 cup sugar
-1 tsp salt
-Mix with that.....
-1 egg
-1 cup milk
-1/3 cup vegtable oil
-Bake at 400* for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and you can stick a toothpick in, and it comes out clean....enjoy!!!
Hope everyone has a blessed evening!!
