I just love a man who cooks. My husband has his special southern dishes, and he does them well. This one is "cracklin cornbread", whatever cracklins are,,I don't want to know,,,but "he" uses something like bacon in it,,,called smoked hog jowls,,,although, I tease him and call it pig cheeks. Now,,to a gal kinda fresh off the Oregon coast, some of the southern dishes seem,,well,,to be nice,,,strange.
Now,,cornbread is to be cooked "only" in an iron skillet in the oven,,,and that is a "flat rule". There is no other acceptable method. Also you must wear your Alabama jacket when performing in the kitchen....not really,,,but he has spent all day in that jacket, and we left the house at 8:30am to house hunt,,and now its going on 9pm. After it's done you get a warm piece, and put milk over it, and grab a spoon. I had to pass, I had leftover pizza calling my name,,,, but He was in hog heaven. And so am I,,, just watching him.
PS..I did try frog legs,,pretty good, if you don't think about it. I refuse to cook them however. I understand they jump around the pan while cooking, as the tendons,,,,never mind.
