Terrific Thursday…

and I am looking forward to a visit from my son today.  The visit changed from Saturday to  today because of schedule.

I have the ham cooked.  Yesterday I made potato salad and Mandarin Orange Salad.  This morning I have to finish with requested items which include mac ‘ n ‘ cheese, green bean casserole, (instead of baked beans) and 3 corn casserole.  I love 3 corn casserole.  This is an old recipe which I have been fixing for 30 or more years.

3 Corn Casserole

Just about everybody I know makes this. The recipe was given to me by my daughter quite a few years ago. I love it. The original recipe called for a stick of margarine. I cut it down to 1/2 stick and it tasted just as good to me.

•1 can whole kernel corn
•1 can cream style corn
•1 pkg Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
•1 egg
•1/2 stick of margarine (sliced)
•1 cup sour cream (may use fat free)

Mix all ingredients together and pour into a 13 X 9 greased baking dish. Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 45 min to 1 hour. The top should be golden brown.

And I think this will be all of the recipes I am printing for awhile.  I saved out a small dish of the orange salad when I fixed it yesterday.  That stuff is scrumptious.

The weather is warming up a bit each day.  It is sunny and 32 degrees to reach the upper 50s today.  Upper 60s forecast for Saturday.

I need to close now and get back to the kitchen.  Stay safe and be happy!!
