Joining the WWW in your 90's?

Uh huh, I do loves me some corn bread! Corn bread can be a tricky monster. I find most that I come across are hard, dry as a rock and really bland. This is light, moist but crumbly and sweet.

I've been making this for a few years now; I found it at All Recipes it's called Golden Sweet Cornbread. It has over 827 reviews so you know it's amazing! I have linked the recipe here.

The only extra thing I do, is after 20 minutes of baking, I take it out of the oven and drizzle corn syrup over the top and then pop it back in the oven for the final 5 minutes. The corn syrup leaves a nice crunchy sweet crust. I always make it in the bundt pan but I bet it would make amazing muffins. Fail proof, easy recipe.

We had the corn bread for lunch today with amazing pulled pork that I started in the crock pot last night. Good stuff!

Finally, my Nana has just bought herself a laptop and has joined the world wide web. See even at over 90 you're never too old to learn something new. Rumour has it she snuck out during installation because she had a card game to attend. If you knew my Nana this is so her. The day she got her pace-maker she was spitting mad because she missed a game.

Grandbanana said she has read all your blogs and quite enjoys them. Being on the web, she now has had emails from all her grandchildren whereas they never sent letters before. She says it is easier for her to type because it's too hard to hold a pen. Just ignore the spelling mistakes. She might take awhile to answer back if she has a live Bridge game to go to. Mom
