Shopping, Rain, Cornbread And A Movie

I ran some errands earlier today to get some cat food for the beasts I have right now.  One adult and three kittens and let me tell you they can eat some food.  I made a hot dog last night and they swarmed me when I tried to eat it.  I felt like I was being attacked by Raptors from Jurassic Park.  

Lots of rain has been pouring over Europe causing flooding and making a mess of things.  So I decided it would be a good day to do some cooking and baking.  I bought some corn meal, honey, and milk to make some cornbread to go with the Chorizo sausage we're having for dinner.  I wanted to pick up some Buttermilk to use in the recipe and forgot, so I'll have to use a different recipe to make the corn bread.  Hopefully it will turn out alright.  I read if you don't have buttermilk to add a dash of vinegar to the regular milk and it will work in the place of the buttermilk.  

I have a cast iron skillet that has been in my family for over a hundred years and I'll cook it up in that in the oven.  I love cooking with the cast iron skillet knowing that several generations of my family have eaten meals prepared by this pan.  The fact that I am now preparing meals in our families ancestral homeland makes it even more special.

I have the movie The Immortals on right now.  Love Henry Cavill, but the movie is kind of boring so far.  Seems a bit of a rip off of the movie "300" with the backgrounds and the raspy voices of the actors.
