Picked the first batch of mustard greens today. Going to bake a pan of cornbread and cook fried shrimp to go with it.

Mmmmmmmmm Good :smile:

Mmmm ...

Since it's Sunday, I feel like I have more time to relax and fix something a bit more fancy for a change, so I'm thinking crab snack and then baked tilapia, plus I haven't gotten tired of asparagus yet. Don't know if I will as the local farm market just opened with so much new asparagus with big beautiful purple tops.

Do you ever put a bit bacon and brown sugar in the mustard greens?

I have a recipe for soft moist cornbread ... unless you like it the original way, good for sopping up sauces.

Here ya go:

Very simple:

MOIST CORNBREAD

1 box "Jiffy" corn muffin mix
8 oz. can of creamed corn
EITHER: 4 oz. sour cream
OR: 3/8 cup buttermilk + 1-1/2 Tablespoon butter
1 egg

Preheat oven AND your cast iron skillet (secret to great cornbread) at 375 degrees.

Mix all.

Take out skillet and spread a spoon of shortening like Crisco or lard.

Bake for 45 min. or until knife put in center comes out clean.

----
Additions to bread can be crumbled bacon, or scallions ... whatever sounds good.
