Maybe we'll get to see the Devillettes' perform to Monte Carlo at Tiki Oasis 11. Bring on the 'Shakers!
Holy cow! I am glad the rapture didn't happen without me hearing this song first!
The Ray Price records have been set aside until 3pm.
I remember Regal beer. Brewed in Miami. 99 cents a six pack. 89 cents when on sale.
It's the water :P
Was brewed. http://www.pbase.com/image/103044656
The 'lectric guitar on Lorin Dean's song glows like the neon on a semi-functioning bar marquee. A beautiful thing, thanks Rex!
* 2 cups white cornmeal
* 2/3 cup flour
* 1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder
* 3/4 teaspoon baking soda (omit if you use regular milk rather than buttermilk)
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* Dash of black pepper
* 1 and 2/3 cups buttermilk (more or less)
* 2-3 tablespoons of bacon drippings
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
2. Prepare the skillet by placing the bacon drippings in the skillet and roll the skillet or use a paper towel to coat the interior sides of the skillet with the bacon grease. Place the skillet in the pre-heated oven while preparing the following batter.
3. In a medium size bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well.
4. Add 3/4 of the buttermilk and stir.
Remove skillet from oven and slowly add about 1 tablespoon of the hot oil (bacon grease) from the skillet, into the batter, stirring well. (Use a pot holder to pick up the skillet!!)
Note: the skillet and bacon grease should be very hot but not smoking.
5. Watching the consistency of the batter, carefully add remainder of buttermilk while stirring.
The consistency of the cornbread batter should look like a thick pancake mix. This may require a little more or less of the remaining buttermilk. If the mix is too thick, add more buttermilk. If the mixture is too thin, add more cornmeal.
6. Lightly sprinkle the skillet bottom with dry corn meal and pour in the batter.
Immediately, place skillet in pre-heated oven.
7. Bake at 400 degrees approximately 25 minutes. Time will vary according to the consistency of the batter you end up with. Watch the cornbread after about 20 minutes and cook until the top is golden brown.
8. After the top is brown, remove the cornbread from the oven and flip the cornbread over in the skillet (see tip below), then continue baking another 5 minutes.
Serve hot. Makes 4 large servings.
Tip: If the cornbread sticks (step 8), run a table knife completely around the inside wall of the skillet while gently shaking. This will usually free the bread for you to flip it over. Protect your hand...it's hot! If the bread does not come out easily, do not try to turn it over. It will crumble and fall apart. Just skip step 8. Allow to cool a few minutes, then run a knife around the edge, while shaking, and the bread should come out in one piece.
St. Cecilia's is right across the street from me!
Keeping up with the contours Keith:

Thanks Rex! We appreciate the shoutout!

I used to dye my hair a lot in high school. Sadly, this is no longer an option.
Teem is a lemon-lime-flavored soft drink produced by The Pepsi-Cola Company. It was introduced in 1964 as Pepsi's answer to 7 Up and Coca-Cola's Sprite.
Teem was sold in the United States and Canada until 1984, when Lemon-Lime Slice was introduced, though it was still available at some soda fountains into the 1990s. Sierra Mist has since taken over the Teem role in the US.
