      You’ve got me curious…. (even though I’m a vegetarian and wouldn’t eat the ham – lol)

      called for?

      I’ve added the obvious things like grated cheese and/or canned chopped green
      chilies — and its turned out wonderful. Last week I added a can of corn
      (drained) and some chopped green onions — again
      with good results.

      Right now I’m using up a box of “white” cornmeal. I happen to of added some
      flour that was half whole wheat and half regular — cuz I mixed it while
      trying to eliminate extra containers on my counter. So the cornbread looks
      NOT yellow, but more beigey.

      Is beigey even a word? It has no effect on
      the taste that I noticed.

      So anyways, tonight I thought I’d try something different. Chopped an
      onion, added some garlic and a little oil to a pan. Then added some
      bitesize ham chunks that were frozen solid in a larger chunk.

      After the ham
      had thawed, the onions were partially cooked. I mixed in a bag of frozen
      corn, partially thawed from sitting on the counter for a few minutes. Then
      turned off the burner.

      Meanwhile, back at the ranch………. I mixed a double batch of the
      cornbread as directed on the box. Also added a tablespoon or two of dry

      I divided the meat/onion/corn
      mixture from above in half, into two different
      9″ by 13″ baking pans. Poured half of the cornbread batter into each pan on
      top of the meat/onion/corn mixture. Both pans are now in the oven baking.

      Didn’t intend to have two pans full when starting this experiment. However,
      it could be considered a complete meal since it has meat, veggie, and bread
      all in one. Or even if not, it will be for me!!

      Obviously this will last
      me 3-4 days. Gotta break out a few of my flat plastic containers with lids
      to store the leftovers in.

      So anyone want to know how it actually tastes when finished? How it looks?
      If it was edible at all?

      Ahhh…imagining that irresistible “new car” smell?
