Mr.Clowers amazing cornmeal contraption

We went to the flea market Friday. Nothing like waiting till triple digit temperatures to load up the kids for a day of walking. We are beat! 
Today, I'm treating myself to a snack. Hot water cornbread topped with greek yogurt, figs, then drizzled with our neighbor's honey and cracked pepper. Yum!
Hot water cornbread is easy, mix cornmeal, salt and pepper with boiling water till you get the consistency of wet oatmeal. Drop by the spoonful onto a greased skillet and smooth down flat. Cook till golden brown on both sides, they'll be crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Hot and cool, creamy and crispy, sweet and peppery..makes one happy heat exhausted mom!


I thought you might like to see where we get our cornmeal. Mr. Clowers lives near us and we are fortunate to get fresh cornmeal anytime we like. And once a month he hauls his amazing cornmeal contraption to the flea market. We stopped by to say "hi" and I snapped a few photos of his diesel mill. I don't know if it's the heat or our new tractor..I think I'm turning into a gear head ;0)











Hope your day holds a sweet treat for you :0)

What a cool contraption! I've seen something along those lines at local craft fair this past spring. Your treats look pretty good and more than anything its just a beautiful picture with the flowers and tray. My mom always added a little sugar to our cornbread. It was probably more like cake compared to your dropped cornbread here but both sound good, I'm starving!
