Famous Cornbread

I recently bought an old recipe card file box. I love these things - the recipes, the handwriting, the weathered cards.
This was one I noted right away - "Dad's Famous Cornbread." I haven't had a chance to make it, but I love the fact that it looks well-worn. No doubt it was really meaningful to whoever took the time to write it off.
It's now safe with me, even if I never actually cook Dad's Famous Cornbread.

Oh to find Ethel's hush-puppy recipe... I remember the fish fries and hush-puppies. And the bath towels to warm the shoulders as the evenings cooled down in the yard.

Memoir fodder for sure.

Ah yes... fish fries... haven't thought of that in a long time... definitely a memoir in that!

You have to love those tattered and torn recipes. Those were keepers for sure!

You know they got some use when they look like this. :)
