This is an adorable video of Best Friends... shared by Brooklyn Vivia... Thanks, V!
 

Yesterday I made some corn bread... Using Marie Callender's Southwestern Mix.. just add 1½ cups water. In it is dehydrated bell peppers, chili peppers, onion, garlic, and parsley.
I also added in some Parm cheese....

When they finished baking I just tilted them up to cool... the pacakge says to use muffin liners... but I just sprayed the muffin tin with Pam!
Ate them as a "football snack" with some Boursin cheese. YUMMMMM!!!
 
All I know. Happy Monday. Nuff said. Ciao.

November 9th
National Scrapple Day
 
Scrapple is a breakfast meat product, popularly served with eggs or pancakes—or even by itself, with maple syrup. The product was originally developed to make use of pork scraps and trimmings that would have gone to waste (including the fat, heart, liver and skin). These are combined with cornmeal, wheat or buckwheat flour and spices into a mush, that is formed into a loaf. Slices of the scrapple are cut and pan fried. The result is a breakfast pattie that is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Scrapple is best known as a regional country food of the mid-Atlantic states, particularly the Pennsylvania Dutch region.
 
Here is a simple and good recipe made with pork sausage.. good with scrambled or fried eggs!
