  Cornbread is a great staple item that is perfect for any meal, especially one with fresh vegetables.
And to quote a popular slogan, "Make Cornbread, Not War".


1 c cornmeal
1 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2/3 c buttermilk
2 T Oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten

Put a small amount of oil into an 8-inch cast-iron skillet and place the skillet in the oven. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Add buttermilk, oil, and egg, stirring just until moistened.  Pour batter into hot skillet. Bake at 425 degrees F for 18 minutes or until browned. Yield 4 servings.
