Grandma’s Kitchen is the current theme of Seattle Cooking Club. This presents a real challenge. My grandmother cooked on a wood burning stove. She butchered a chicken in the morning and cooked it that evening. This will not work for me since I don’t even have an ax let alone a chicken.
I have seen my own mother butcher a few chickens but for the most part she was a cook of convenience. Frozen fish sticks were a real treat. Sauces started with a can of soup and salads consisted of jello and fruit cocktail.
In order to come up with a recipe I scoured cookbooks and internet sites for Grandma’s recipes. I think this one is going to be delicious. It is a cornbread recipe that calls for two lbs of bacon, green chilies, cheese and corn. I actually picked the corn myself and it is in the freezer waiting for the perfect recipe and I am hoping this is it.
