Southern Hoe Cakes

Southern Hoe Cakes

1/4 cup of self rising flour
1 3/4  cup of cornmeal ( I like to use the buttermilk variety but you can use any, just make sure it is white and not the yellow kind)
2 eggs
1 cup + 2 Tablespoons of milk or water. (You want it good and moist but not runny, you want to bee able to spoon it up on a spoon and it stay there and not run off.)

1 tablespoon of oil, for frying, 


In a medium bowl, mix  together all the ingredients.
Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by Tablespoons into the hot skillet to form small medallions. You can make them as small or as large as you want.

Fry until brown, the side up toward you will start to bubble, turn and brown the other side.

1.  Peel and wash potatoes.
2.  You can do this 2 ways, either dice potatoes or slice then across.

3. Put enough oil in the bottom of skillet to cover bottom of skillet well. A cast iron skillet that is good and  
    seasoned really works well.
4. Heat oil over medium heat until hot.

5. Carefully put in the potatoes,cover with a lid and stir occasionally. If you like onions you can also adds
    some onions.

    Fry for about 10 minutes covered then remove lid and fry until browned a little.

Question of the week- Who buys Christmas gifts for their pets?


This is "Pooh" we lost him 8 yrs. ago due to heart failure. This was one of his Christmases, he got the bear you see in the picture. We used to wrap all their gifts, now I just put them in a stocking. What do you do for your pets on Christmas?
