A   Molasses and corn bread
From the life of Wilson A. Shumway:   In 1880 Grandfather Shumway received a call to go to Arizona, and my father and his family at that time, consisting of a wife and two children, preceded him with the cattle, arriving at the small settlement of Concho, Apache county, in the spring of  1881. Here my parents lived for two years, the poorest of the poor pioneers, in a dugout for a house and living on barley bread for a time, but later they were able to build a small log cabin and provide themselves with cornbread and molasses, sandwiched with flour bread on Sundays.
