Corn Bread


This recipe is one of the coolest I have come across to date. It’s a half sheet of paper with the recipe written in pencil and has a grease spot covering a good portion of it.

At the bottom, there is a word that looks like Squab – what does this mean?

Below the word I cannot make out is “bake 45 min 400.”
