Hello! How was your weekend?
Ben and I played House Hunters yesterday. It was a bust though. The first Open House was a lie and there was no realtor there, plus it was such a tragedy the other house hunters said it would probably have to be knocked down. Boo.
At least I managed to do my makeup for the days events (that’s fallen by the wayside lately).
Just let it go Monica, let it go…
Sunday: I started my Sunday with a nice morning walk. It was nice and crisp out
Sunday Set Up
It’s Thanksgiving Week! It’s my favorite holiday, so I’m pretty excited. I’m making the green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole and cornbread casserole. So, I bought this pyrex set from Costco to make things easier.
I don’t think I’ve posted the recipe for Cornbread Casserole before because I figured most of you are already familiar with it. But, it’s not something I grew up with. I actually got this recipe from my ex-boyfriend’s Caucasian family, so I’m not sure if it’s a common thing in “all types of family circles”, but everyone I’ve made it for loves it.
I have this recipe memorized at this point, not sure who made the original.
Corn Bread Casserole Recipe
1 box corn bread mix (I’ve used everything from jiffy to TJ’s)
8 oz. greek yogurt OR sour cream
1 can corn, drained
1 can creamed corn
2 Tb melted butter
Directions: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients. Pour into greased 8×8 pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until set. *I double the recipe every time I make it, so I use a bigger baking dish and bake for over an hour.
The recipe is intended to be combined with a box of jiffy corn bread or a similarly sized one. If you use a bigger box (like the ones from TJ’s) you might have to add a half a cup of milk to thin it out.
Question: How was your weekend? What are you making for Thanksgiving??
