It may have been a little unfair to the first and last stories to sandwich such a powerful, dark piece between them.
I eat eggs for breakfast every morning (slow carb diet), but I could eat an entire skillet full of the Joy of Cooking Southern Cornbread recipe. No flour (gluten free). For the "buttermilk," I put two tablespoons of white vinegar in a measuring cup, then fill to two cups with coconut milk. Let sit for five minutes. Surprisingly good - so good my dad, who was visiting and extremely skeptical, declared it the best cornbread he'd ever eaten. No sugar - that doesn't belong. But uh, then you slather it in whipped honey and butter.
What I'm saying is, now I'm dreaming of cornbread, and I can't have it for three more days. Thanks a lot.
Oh, and fruit. Can't eat fruit till then, either ...
Wait, what were we talking about?
