As part of school, the Popo is learning to cook.  I print out simple instructions, lay out measuring utensils and we name off the ingredients together as seen in the above photo.  Anything hot or dangerous is still done by me, but the rest of it is solely up to the Po.  While I put together some chili for dinner last night, Popo made us cornbread from scratch:  


Preheat Oven to 425 degrees F. 

Sift together:

·      1 Cup Med Grind Cornmeal

·      1 Cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour

·      ½ (Half) Teaspoon Salt

·      4 Teaspoons Baking Powder

·      1 Tablespoons Sugar


Next add,

·      1 Cup Milk

·      1 Egg

·      ¼ (Quarter) Cup Butter

Combine and blend well.

Pour into greased 8-inch square pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.   ( Serves 6-8 )
