To celebrate we had a scrumptious feast tonight, which seemed even more delicious thanks to the perfect backyard setting, including four very nicely (!) behaved children around the table. (The fact that it was fast Sunday didn't hurt either...)
BBQ baby back ribs
sweet Jersey corn on the cob
crisp spinach salad
buttermilk corn bread & honey butter
caramel corn, watermelon
and a game of wiffle ball
Buttermilk Corn Bread
(I got this recipe from my mother-in-law...it is really corn cake. Love it! Love it!)
Mix 1 stick melted butter with 1 cup sugar. Add 2 eggs. In a small bowl, combine 1 cup buttermilk and 1 tsp. baking soda. Then add to butter mixture. Stir in 1 cup flour, 1 tsp. salt and 1 c. cornmeal. Mix with a fork and pour into greased 9x13 inch pan. (For thicker slices, use a 9 inch square pan.) Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with honey butter:
1/2 cup honey, 1/2 cup soft butter, 1/2 tsp. vanilla and one egg yolk. Whip.
