[bksvol-discuss] Re: OT Southern Corn Bread Recipe

HI Misha!

You have my undying sympathy!  The books you are tackling sound like real
monsters!  Thank you for taking them on.  I admire folks like you who tackle
the kind of material and the immense-size books that you have taken on.  I
do not have anything like that kind of devotion.

The hat that you wouldn't catch me dead wearing is off to you.  Really, and
truly, it is!

Mayrie

It, of course, wouldn't be "southern" cornbread without the bacon drippings.


But the first thought I had was, "well, that's not a vegetarian cornbread
recipe."  We could have all kinds of diet controversies even without
religion being involved. 

And speaking of diet...with all the cookbooks on the download list, I'm
tempted to proof one even though I am trying to lose weight.  However, the
main reason I don't is because I already have two large non-fiction books
that I am working on that are real time sinks (but interesting).  
I am proofing a book on the Vietnam War called "Patriots" which has short
interviess with a variety of people from each side (575 pages).  I am
scanning a travel book from just before World War II about Yugoslavia called
"Black Lamb and Grey Falcon" (1183 pages).

Yes, I am fishing for sympathy.

and those who can't use bacon fat probably can find a substitute.  smile.
