The Pandowdy looks pretty good, it looks kind of like a peach cobbler of some sort. What's in it? BTW- Maui Maui has a funny name to it, tastes great though. Mmmmmm.... Maui Maui...

That's Yankee food. Easy to make, you use bisquick like pie crust over any kind of fruit you have laying around, but traditional pandowdy is whipped up on apple farms using apples fresh off the tree. My granddad was an apple grower and my grandma could make from-scratch pandowdy my brother , cousins and I would fight over for the last piece. Here's a recipe:

http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,187,155161-227192,00.html

If you don't want to go thru the trouble of making your own crust, just folow the same recipe, make up a batch of Bisqucik and poor an inch or so of it over it and bake it the same way -almost as good as from scratch.

As far as oddly name food goes, I always think of "Johnny Cake", something my mom would make once and a while. Years later when I moved down south, I discovered the exact same stuff was known as "cornbread" down south. Seems it was unknown in New England until after the Civil War. The soldiers brought it back from the war and it became known as "Johnny cake", short for "Johnny Reb's Cake". They still call it that now.

Speaking of cornbread, I have noticed there are many different ways to make it. Some people just use cornbread or muffin mix, mix in an egg and some milk, and bake it. I've heard of and once prepared some cornbread with a little bit of sugar in it. Some even use SPOILED MILK!!! EWWWW.... Each to their own I guess.
Has anyone ever done this when eating cornbread, or "Johnny Cake" as my northern friends call it, put the cornbread in a glass or cup, pour some milk over it, and eat it with a spoon? It's pretty good, although I don't think it has a formal name to it.

No, but in New England the home cooking crowd always substitutes real maple syrup for sugar in a recipe where ever possible, and Johnny Cake made with maple syrup or served with it as a topping is a totally different trip from your standard southern cornbread. Southerners don't know what they are missing when it comes to cooking with real maple syrup. For example, in New England, they broil Maine scallops, which are the big ones, after they have been soaked in maple syrup, and basted with it a couple of times as they broil. In Texas, they just butter the living **** out of them and broil em, maybe squirting a little lemon juice on them or something. The maple syrup scallops will knock your socks off, while I find the ones they serve here kind of bland. There was a resturant on the Galveston cruise pier called "Willie G's" that cooked them with maple syrup and I would drive forty miles just to eat there, but the last time I went, they had changed their menu and were serving them heart-attack style, in an inch of gooey butter. Guess I'll have to learn to cook my own.

Could mean what is a substitute for Buttermilk, is use milk, but stir in a teaspoon or two of viniger, it sours the milk, but it isn't spoiled.

Sure.

Take cornbread from the table after dinner. Crumble it into a tall glass. Bring a long-handled spoon with you and sit on the couch in front of the TV.

Have your wife:
Slice some dill pickles and/or pickled green tomatoes and a sliced onion on the side on a plate;
Pour clabbered milk (buttermilk) over the cornbread in the glass as you watch the SEC game between GA and and Auburn--she must not make you glance from the screen, its an art;
She may go and clean the kitchen or whatever women do during the game.

Without looking from the TV, take a bite from the pickle or tomato and then a bite from the onion. Wash it down with the cornbread slurry. You're supposed to dribble the partially masticated goo all over your wifebeater--she'll wash it later.

If you finish the clabbered milk before the pickle and onion, yell at your wife to bring some more of everything.

The spoon is for getting the chunks of cornbread crust that stick to the glass. You must do that without looking from teh screen. If you flip the soggy crust to the flooor, don't worry, what's her name will clean it after the game while you nap on the couch with the chihuahua sleeping on your fat belly.

If you have the chance to visit South Africa and order a hamburger you will be asked if you want "Monkey Gland Sauce".
