So, staying with my sister, I've gotten to eat a lot of awesome home-cooked meals (I've cooked a few myself, too). One thing I don't remember liking so much as I suddenly do now is cornbread. The regular stuff with just a good bit of margarine slathered over it, or crumbled up with pork-flavored white beans over the top is a thing of down-home deliciousness. I also got the opportunity to try broccoli cornbread not too long ago - basically, broccoli  bits and shredded cheese added in for even more goodness. It's great on its own, though - don't crumble it up in chili or white beans.

And for you people that insist on muffins, just... no. Cornbread should be baked in a cast-iron skillet, period, full stop.

Wow, 723. My best score in a long time. Yes, I have had a lot of time off of work lately, how did you guess?

I think I once scored a 89 because I had the wrong answer selected as correct in the back end.

Also, bacon jalapeño cornbread sounds awesome.  I found this pic:

Looks awesome. Do you do yours with or without cheese? I'm seeing recipes both ways.

You should be all set for the question on smart toilets (and yes, I actually called the corporate office to verify the question).

My smart toilet just told me to ease up on the corn bread. I clogged it out of spite.

I decided to get it after spending a few weeks in Japan. I looked at the Japenese models but they were too complicated and the Germans know how to make toilets...

No. No they do not. They believe in the "poop shelf", I guess so you can look at it and smell it and poke it or something before you flush.

I've of course heard of the poop shelf, but I've never seen one in the wild. Don't really see floor standing toilets very often either.

With a bit of skill one could beef off a smiling Hitler caricature in that thing - or is that the point?

I'm not a fan of sweet cornbread. Esoecialky the overly sweet ones that are super moist and cake-like in texture. The ones that remind me of the Jiffy cornbread mix in a box. At that point of sweetness, it's more like a corn cake than cornbread. No corn flavor at all.

I think that's an imported brand. From Canada or something.

What flavor? Like the spicy kind, or BBQ, or the "plain" ones with that weird powdery stuff that sticks to your fingers?

Yes I knew what you meant, I was just wondering whether or not it was 'autocorrect' or as you say 'stupid fingers.
