what to do with leftover cornbread?

One of the easiest and best ways I've used it:
Slice into fingers similar to large french fries, saute and dust with spice and sugar, then serve with greens or salad.

1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice

Gently cube or make long cubes of cornbread, sprinkle with spice mixture and brown, serve hot on greens or salad.

Any Use For Papaya seeds?

While visiting my brother in Costa Rica (must be nice, eh?) I made a lovely dish with what I had there: a nice white fish similar to halibut (I have no idea what it was), a papaya, limone and butter, sugar and salt. IF you are adventerous enough to try it, here it is! Cook the fish in one skillet, cut the papaya crosswise and brown it on both sides with a super heated skillet and a sprinkle of demmerara. Then deglaze the papaya skillet with the limone juice and swirl a pat of butter to the sweet and tart juice with some seeds left behind from searing the papaya slices. Plate the fish, arrange the papaya slices partly on the fillet, partly on the plate, spoon the sauce over both, and using a micro plane top the whole plate with a touch of the limone rind. Outstanding fare with the sweet of papaya, sour of limone, and pepper of seeds, and it is colorful and lovely to look at. What more can we ask for? Btw, papayas here are LOUSY compared to the ones there!

Best to you!
