Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

For Thanksgiving, I'm sharing Matt's mom's corn recipe with you.  There are two reasons I'm sharing.  First, you might still be looking for an easy side dish for Christmas, since I'm posting this after Thanksgiving is over.  Second, I'm addicted to Pinterest and I want to save this recipe there.  My current method of looking up the recipe is to search my email before holidays, which is a pain on my phone.  I'd rather have it saved on my "Food" board.

Pinterest confession over, here's Matt's favorite Thanksgiving/Christmas side dish.  Sorry, I don't have any pictures of the corn.  I actually didn't get out my real camera all day, because I was busy cooking, corralling kiddos, and enjoying a house full of friends.

We did our local Turkey Trot.  Matt pushed the stroller.  I  took it easy.  I was 19th in my age group; the race was very walker-heavy!

Another shot of Ellie and I to show off her kicks.  And so you can see how many layers she wore.

The only food photo I took all day.  Yum.

Baked Corn

You'll need:
1 15/16 oz. can of cream style corn
1 cup milk
1 egg, well-beaten
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup plus 1/2 cup cracker crumbs (Ritz-style works well)

Ready?  It's easy.
1. In a saucepan, heat corn and milk.  
2. Wisk in the egg.
3. Wisk in the salt/pepper, 1/2 cup cracker crumbs.
4. Put mixture in greased baking dish. (Choose a smallish one, you want a thicker layer of corn.)
5. Top with the other cup of cracker crumbs.
6. Bake at 350 for one hour.  

Finally, I'm thankful for Ellie's new shoes.  Here's an Instagram photo:

No, this post is not sponsored by New Balance, but I think they should consider sponsoring blogs about toddlers with very short and very wide feet.  Ellie is now rocking a size 3, double wide.  She should really be wearing a 2, double wide, but that isn't in the New Balance line.

If you know any reps, have them call me!

I hope each of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, that you enjoyed for family and friends, and that you feel blessed as we kick off the holiday season.  I am excited to decorate for Christmas, get out our Elf on the Shelf, and make red and green cake pops, but I'm also excited for Lessons and Carols at church, advent, and some times of stillness... or as still as one can be with Ellie around!

Pin It!
