Trader Joe's Cornbread Mix

Jim Leff | Oct 10, 2003 01:09 AM

I hate really really really simple cooking tasks. They make me incredibly anxious.

I've got a box of TJ's cornbread mix. It says "you will need: 1 egg, 1/2 cup oil, and 3/4 cup milk".

So...what oil? I'm figuring olive would be too strong-flavored. Maxola? Wesson? I don't OWN oil!

And milk...shall I buy full fat, or can I use my usual 1% and fatten it up with some butter? Or should I use butter in lieu of oil?

Also, can I cut this thing in half? It's a 15 oz box, and I'm likely to be the only one eating this stuff, and I don't want its termination to be my life's work for the next two weeks. That could interfere with my obsession with Mina (see outer boros board).

And I need an 8x8x2 pan? I don't have a full set of wrenches, and certainly not of baking pans. Can I just do this in, like, an aluminum take-out container or something?

Ah, ease. Ah, convenience.
