Bacon Cheddar Cornbread
In addition to the Broccoli Cheddar cornbread, I spent the morning making Bacon Cheddar Cornbread. This is the one I will take to our Homecoming. That is tribal-speak. Translation: the families in our tribe come together once every year at Labor Day weekend for kind of a multi-day, multi-family reunion. There are various activities on Saturday and church and Dinner on the Grounds on Sunday. Our Sappony Homecoming has been an annual event for I don't know how long. A hundred years, maybe a hundred and fifty? Two hundred years? Something like that. If you are interested, our tribal website is http://sappony.org/
Saturday is a time to participate in the activities from walkathon and kids' crafts and games to tribal history information and walks, lunch, tribal update meeting, voting and visiting with extended family. Our tribe boasts some of the best cooks in the region. And at Sunday's Homecoming's Dinner on the Grounds, there are tables after tables after tables loaded down with mouthwatering homemade specialities. I usually bring my chocolate chess pie, but I wanted to do cornbread this year.
I was planning an extravaganza of both Broccoli Cheddar Cornbread, Bacon Cheddar Cornbread and then toying with the idea of making a Butterscotch Pumpkin Cake, but had to scale down my plans because of my arm injury. And one of my best beloved friends voted for the Bacon Cheddar Cornbread, so that will be this year's contribution to Dinner on the Grounds.
