Quicquid

Sweet cornbread is a Yankee abomination.

Mrs. Peperium

Oh you high and mighty Southerners who don't put sugar in your cornbread but then go and serve it with sweet butter and honey.

BTW, anyone who is making their own cornbread for stuffing, don't put sugar in it. You'll have a candied turkey and only your yams should be candied.

I hate candied yams. I believe candied yams are of Southern origins. Some Southern farmers even put molasses in the dirt to get the yams as sweet as they can.

Quicquid

I don't know what you've been sniffing, but nobody I know puts honey on cornbread, or anything else sweet--which of course doesn't include "sweet" butter as it is merely unsalted.

Candied yams hate you too. I'm not even going to ask where you get your information on Southern farming practices.

Misspent

I'd be interested to see your explaination on why private property is not consitant with liberalism. I suppose you are referring to Leftism when you say liberalism, and not the laissez-faire 18th century liberalism?

Card

Quicky, I always put honey on cornbread. But then I'm a yankee. Well, I'm not really even a yankee since I don't reside east of the Hudson River. But I do put honey on cornbread.

And speaking of sweet things...Half of that pie Mrs C made last night mysteriously disappeared. And I thoroughly enjoyed every bite of it. Please feel free to forward any other recipes you'd care to suggest. I will be more than happy to serve as your northern taste tester.

Mrs. Peperium

Molasses contains sulfur which is a natural funghicide. Oraganic farmers (as well as Misspent's relative George Washington Carver) use it all the time.

Laissez-faire liberalism...do you mean Jeffersonian blah, blah? What the good Catholic Ted Kennedy or John Kerry or Nancy Pelosi promulgate as liberalism has little to do with the Jeffersonian blah, blah.

Quicquid

I'm thinking about making that very pie today. No bourbon, though; I'm feeling Puritan. I'm too sick to make a pie to take to Thanksgiving dinner--too sick indeed to go to Thanksgiving dinner--but not too sick to make a pie and eat on it myself.

Quicquid

By the way, Card, I have a good recipe for sausage balls. Just the thing for this time of year. Want it?

Card

Absolutely! If you're given it, I want it.

Mrs. Peperium

Card, what exactly are you agreeing to? This is a family blog.

Card's wife

I say sausage balls are good any time of the year.

Mrs. Peperium

Card's wife, are you up for blogging tonight? I got Mr. P ribeyes for the grill and the Smithwick's ale is chilling. We are ready for some fun.

Card's wife

What about Dick O'Dows?

Card's wife

Too much snow?

Mrs. Peperium

It's nothing against you Card's wife but he wants to be at home tonight.

Card's wife


He wants to watch Lost. Just like Misspent.

Mrs. Peperium

Yeah, that's it. Actually if I can pour enough liquor into him, we might even have him make a guest appearance.

Andrew Cusack

I love cornbread. Only warm though.

Card's wife

Well it is the biggest party night of the year.

Mrs. Peperium

Card's wife, you should see my pies. The only things Martha Stewart has on me is 400+ million and an electronic tether. I wonder if you can bake with a tether? The oven might just melt it.

Mrs. Peperium

Hey, Mr. P just called. He's on his way home.

Mrs. Peperium

The pies are done. The final one just went into the oven (apple crumble). The kids are eating their dinner and Mr. P is drinking, listening to Nero Wolfe on tape while cleaning up the kitchen for me. Bread dough and two loaves of cranberry bread are still on the agenda. Mr. P is going to have to wear a hat and mitten while he grills. There are about 2 inches of snow on the ground.

Andrew, are any women making you a Thanksgiving dinner? There used to be a store in Paris called Home Away From Home. You could walk in there any day and get a turkey dinner to go. They carried Kraft Mac&Cheese, peanut butter, cranberry sauce...

Card's wife

Mrs. P, QQ just sent me the sausage ball recipe. I should say he sent it to the Card. I'm not so certain he would have sent it to me. I think I may be in the QQ dog house. Why that should be is beyond me. As you know, I'm always perfectly charming to him (and truthful).

Mrs. Peperium

Do he serve sausage balls to his dogs or is it a kibble only diet? I wouldn't worry about being in his doghouse unless he's got fleas. Since he lives down South, chances are that he does.

Hey did you hear Michael Jackson is a racist? I've got to go look at the NYDaily News and see if it's true.

Mrs. Peperium

He's an anti-semite.
