    Never really cared for soup, especially when young. Now I bake up some cornbread, drain most of the liquid, put the soup over said bread, bake it for about another 10 minutes, good stuff. Pretty awesome with chili as well.

    Corn bread is best served warm, slathered in butter (not the garbage called margarine). If adventurous, spread a little jam on top. Aw, gee. Now I’m hungry.

    On top of that warm, butter slathered cornbread (that’s the way I like it too) I sometimes have maple syrup. And you’re right – no margarine or spread garbage.

    Picking out the ingredients is indeed a gift. I can usually identify most of the instruments in a musical piece.

    Looks like Nate might have a future as a bomb or drug sniffing dog. Oh wait, wrong species.

    Butter vs. margarine: You can tell on which carbon atom the hydrogen atom is attached? The only way I can tell them apart is to dissolve them in acetone and observe under ultraviolet light: butter looks blue while margarine looks yellow. This is because of the color added to basically white margarine. I can even remember when we had to add the color by breaking a capsule and kneading it throughout – a favorite task for children.

    As a person with a very UNsharp sense of smell, I admire Nate’s olfactory abilities.

    And the color capsule was there because the dairy industry pushed for it – they wanted consumers to be turned off by what looked like lard.

    I don’t remember them, but my mother did. But I do remember when margarine wasn’t allowed to be sold in the dairy section of the store.

    I use butter and lard because they are real foods. I’ve made both. I wouldn’t know how to make margarine or shortening. I go by the adage: If God didn’t make it, it is no good for you.

    Yep, always, I also drizzle honey over the CB before baking, and if feeling adventurous, throw some chips or Bugles on, then the soup or chili and after the CB has cooked.

    frank corona: I am fuzzy on that date and it is too late to look it up. I think pre-colored margarine was available by WW-II, but Wisconsin held out until after the war due to the power of the dairy lobby there.

    Shouldn’t Chad know this because he’s the expert at food?
