what’s for dinner?

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s been very quiet around here. Naps appear to be front and center… This morning, Dolly (my niece) accidentally FaceTimed  me…so, I had a chance to chat with great grand-nephew Chris, now almost 6.5 years old! He told me he was going to make “corn pudding” this morning – he was excited. And he did. Dolly (or Chris, not sure who for he often sends us txt messages ) shared the proof of the pudding just fresh out of the oven.

I too am making corn pudding- it’s been a Thanksgiving/Christmas staple since the late 70s…and so I thought I’d share the recipe* – very simple and easy to make:

  • 2 – 12 oz cans: 1 – cream corn and 1 – whole kernel corn (drained)
  • 1 cup sour cream (I use fat free )
  • 1/2 c. margerine – melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 box Jiffy mix

Dump all the ingredients into a bowl, mix thoroughly and bake at 350 degrees, 40 -50 min or a tester comes clean .

Guaranteed to please and it’s even tastier the next couple days… Enjoy!

Chris likes to cook; I think I’ll get him a chef’s hat + matching apron for Christmas and a cookbook; trust I can find such.

Cheers~

*I’ve shared the recipe before when the blog was on typepad …

the clock ticks … the sun shines – tho’ the thermometer vacillates between 32°-33° … sitting on the counters, makin’s for corn pudding and sour cream gelatin … the turkey’s in the oven  – it’s aroma begins to fill the air …

quiet … peaceful … looking forward to this gathering with family and friends…

grateful for this day of thanksgiving …

may your Thanksgiving Day also be filled with family, friends and festivity.

Cheers~

unraveled wednesday|11.14.18 …

this is a raffle quilt from a neighboring quilt group…for a mere $5, one gets 6 chances to win; I should be so lucky! perhaps…

Today began early enough: first a 10 am appointment for a haircut; then two stops: a- office supply store and b – vacuum cleaner repair shop. Had to have the vacuum vacuumed in order for the vacuum to vacuum! Bottom line: the vacuum cleaner works again! 

This year, we’re hosting Thanksgiving and celebrating Elias’ first birthday, too! I have been pondering and deciding the menu – sticking with traditional : turkey/corn pudding/cranberries/salad/ roasted veggies, raspberry-sour cream gelatin salad… and rolls. Dolly will help – she’s good in the kitchen and likes to cook!

Here it is, after 4 pm and the day’s somewhat unraveled…but not lost. Tho’ sunset is rapidly upon us, I’m going to spend the next couple hours restoring some order to the craft studio…

And that’s the way it is on a wednesday… joining Kat and others here

Cheers~
