The Cure

It was bound to happen. It's all around me. I fought it, ignored it, and then.......IT won!

Sore throat, sneezing, and the awful aching!

All I could think about all morning was a bowl of vegetable soup. So I braved the drizzling cool rain and bought the ingredients I was lacking.....

And now it is ready to cure me.....I know it will....I feel it!



Add a piece of cornbread to the cure and it can't fail



Do you like cornbread or crackers with soup?????

Do you like cornbread crumbled in a glass and filled with buttermilk? Oh me, it doesn't get any better than that. My daddy loved buttermilk and cornbread and I followed in his footsteps. It is pure comfort to me. I laugh at myself when buying groceries. I read labels, buy low fat products and then march to the milk cooler and buy bulgarian buttermilk.

I'm already looking forward to a glass tonight for a snack.....

That soup looks great! I usually love garlic bread on the side.

I hope the soup does the trick!

It's better to eat a little of great food than a lot of so-so food. I fully support your choices to feel better!

OH NO! So sorry about your being sick. I am QUITE impressed with that delicious soup you made despite not feeling well! It looks SOOOOOOO good!

I love home made corn bread! And, I am so pleased to tell you that although I do not care for buttermilk my Papaw always poured buttermilk over left over cornbread! Such a wonderful memory.

Although I was raised by buttermilk and cornbread lovin' parents I did not inherite a love of the mixture but if I had a bowl of that soup then maybe I would be well too. I feel your pain. I.am.sick!

I'm not much of a cornbread lover --but I will eat it with Pinto Beans..... I eat crackers with chili and most soups...

I'm sorry you got the 'bug'... Hope that wonderful soup will cure it quickly.
Hugs,

Nanny, I am so sorry you have the crud! Hope you are feeling well soon.

I'm a cornbread LOVER! My dad and grandparents ate cornbread soaked in buttermilk... I never developed a taste for that though. That soup looks good enough to be a cure! Get well.

Grandmother said...

Love the conbread, for sure. Never had the milk with it but my favorite accompaniment is chili. Feel well soon.

Cornbread and buttermilk does NOT sound good, but I LOVE cornbread with honey!

A local restaraunt serves corbread with cinnamon butter, and it's awesome!

Amanda said...

I hope you're feeling better today and that the soup and cornbread were just the remedy you needed. =)
