Meal #7

Meal number seven - Friday Lunch

Success! This was easy and fabulously tasty... Chili Pie! My sister helped me make corn bread (she even found a good recipe in her Boxcar Children Cookbook by Diane Blain), and we topped a pie pan full of leftover chili with the corn bread batter.
Here is the recipe she used...

1 1/4 c flour
3/4 c cornmeal
1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c milk
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 egg
            Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, pour into a greased baking pan (or on top of some chili) and bake at 400 until a toothpick or a knife comes out clean.
It did take a while longer then expected to bake (the chili was cold and I think that was a big factor), but the end result was worth the wait! We topped each bowl full with grated cheddar cheese and the whole thing magically disappeared, so fast in fact that I almost didn't get a picture of the end result.

Oh my gosh-what a funny funny picture of you!

(And I am impressed with how clean the counter looks in the pictures where Abby is baking!).

Hey Mom. That's Rosie.

Ha ha! Priscilla Segar told me it was Rosie and I told her it wasn't!
