Beans N Corn Bread

Sunday afternoon.
Decided to make black beans and corn bread.
So did Penelope.
Penelope our hen, that is.

What you'll need:
1 cup of yellow cornmeal
1 cup sifted flour
1/4 cup of sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs- preferably blue but others colors will do
Preheat the oven to 400

Combine all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Mix wet ingredients together and add to dry ingredients.
Do not over mix- just a few strokes will do.
Hold your hen and drink your wine.

Place in greased 9 inch pan.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.

After the cornbread comes out
immediately cut yourself a slice and slap on some butter.

Crumble on top of some hot black beans
and garnish with cilantro.

Cheers! And don't forget to share with you friends. 
Feathered or not.

And if you want to do a little jig here's the music.
