Cornbread and Milk...

I was going through boxes in my studio when I came across a picture of my grandpa.  It has been a few years since he passed away and finding the photo made me miss him terribly.  So I went into the kitchen and I made one of his favorites:  Cornbread and Milk.

It's not anything fancy – kind of like him.  He never put on any kinds of airs.    It's just cornbread that's crumbled up with milk poured over it.

Later in life, he used to get really bad heartburn and this was one of the few things that he could still eat that he enjoyed without consequence.

So, I made myself some and thought fondly of the memories we shared.

That's so nice, and a big coincidence because I have just put a large pan of "bread pudding" in the oven to bake - thinking about my Mom, as she used to make it all the time.
