RECIPE OF THE WEEK
Don’t be scared off by the name of this delicious cornbread variety; “spider” comes from the name of a type of three-legged skillet the bread was traditionally baked in (though any cast-iron skillet will do).
1 cup white cornmeal (Prof. Wanda Dodson uses unsifted stone ground)
1/3 cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup rich milk (Dodson uses half & half)
1/4 cup water
Sift dry ingredients together.
Beat the egg and combine with 1 cup milk. Add to dry ingredients and mix well.
Heat a lump of butter in an iron skillet and add batter. Over this pour the combined rich milk and water. Do not stir. Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Cut into pie-shaped wedges and serve piping hot.
I have received a COVID vaccine. Do I need to continue testing?
Yes. Vaccinated individuals are required to continue ongoing testing as directed by Occupational Medicine. Experts are still working to learn more about the protection that COVID-19 vaccines provide, and everyone who receives a vaccine should maintain precautions such as wearing a face covering, physical distancing, handwashing, and avoiding travel and gatherings.
