Buzzin' around Hertitage Fest

Buzzin' around all weekend long, like a fly in my ear, has been the Goodyear blimp.

Buzz. Buzz, buzz. Buzzbuzzbuzz.


Also happening this weekend is the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival. Vendors, fair food, a Rubber Duck Race, Ancestors Gathering, and old machines.

This machine, the "New Badger",

gave me this....

a bag of ground-before-mine-own-eyes corn meal! The lady that handed it to me and said, "refrigerate or freeze it...fresh ground = no preservatives."

Anyone have a good corn bread recipe? I'd love to have 'em!

Sorry, no good cornbread recipe here. We usually use good old Jiffy mixes!

Did volunteering at the festival help your funk? We went to a farmer's market in downtown Holland (ever been? it's a great little town!) and got some fresh ground honey roasted peanut butter - to die for!

Um, yeah. Jiffy Corn Muffin mix is what I use. *Cough* That's awesome, though! If you find a recipe, you'll have to let us know how it turns out!

I've got a couple of great ones. If I don't get back over here in the next couple of days to post it, feel free to harass me via email. We've got a bday party this weekend we are prepping for, and my brain is a bit scrambled right now.
