I'm a shitty logger.

It's true, but I've got a really good reason. First: the hours. Seventeen yesterday, and I sort of feel like I shouldn't be doing it for someone else, but I guess it's kind of for me too. You know, like an investment in my future, a training period if you will, for when it IS all for me. Second: the hours. There are simply not enough of them in the day for all of the things I'm supposed to be accomplishing, let alone the sleeping, eating (something besides buttered white rice, please), drinking (water, but whiskey too) and fun that make life worth living.
But I think about it. The logging that is.
All I need is a great second hand. And a trip to Europe. And some macarons and truffles and cheese when I get there. And some sleep. And some love.
So, here's a quick recipe, the one I get the most requests for at the albatross, and some love for you.

1 and a half cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tbl baking powder
1 tbl kosher salt
1 and a quarter cups milk
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tbl melted butter
1/2 a standard (14oz.) can creamed corn

Mix the dry in one bowl, the wet in another. Grease, and line with parchment, a 9" cake pan. Mix the dry and wet together and pour into prepared pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 62 minutes. Eat warm, butter is nice, but not necessary. Some things I've added to the mix from time to time: minced jalapenos, chipotle chiles, bacon crumbles.
