I survived my first Veggie Thanksgiving, and I defeated the HAM...the ham DID NOT defeat me! I'm sure I consumed a massive unknown quantity of chicken stock, but for the most part, I am proud of myself. I honestly have to say that I didn't miss the turkey. I love sides, and that big hunk of meat with gravy just steals room for things like sweet potatoes and corn casserole! I also spent a nice 6 days in sunny Arizona....and had my first Thanksgiving dinner outside in the backyard. Other than the shear masses of food (including pumpkin pie for breakfast three days in a row) I ate while I was there, I'd call it a great holiday!

So if you look back a few blogs, I posted about peanut butter M&Ms. Well, let me tell you something, I found out this week that PB M&Ms don't hold a candle to MINT M&Ms. Holy crap those things are like crack! I could grind them up and rail lines if I really wanted because otherwise I'll just hoover a whole 1 lb bag in one sitting. Luckily they are only around during the holidays, and I don't plan on purchasing any for said reasons above...but YUM!

And DOUBLE HOLY CRAP, while I was looking for the picture above I found this:

I think I just gained 12.4 pounds looking at that picture.

Anyway, in case you couldn't guess that's today's praise: Mint M&Ms. And I think, I just decided this, that from now until Christmas the praise will be devoted to all things food and holiday.

That being said, the recipe today is my signature take along casserole for holidays. Its maybe the easiest thing in the world to make, and I don't have to kill you for knowing the recipe:

Cheesy Corn Casserole

1 stick butter, melted
8 oz sour cream
1 box jiffy corn bread mix
1 can creamed corn
1 can whole kernel corn
1 egg
8 oz bag of cheddar cheese

Mix first six ingredients and pour into 13 x 9 pan sprayed with cooking spray. Top with cheese and bake, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes in a 350 oven.

It wouldn't be Angie's Holiday Dish without enjoy!

  1. Oh sommbitch this is a TOTAL delish redneck dish. My sister and brother-in-law make this downhome Arkansas Favorite every year for Christmas. FYI though, you don't use cheddar cheese in the REAL recipe. I can't tell you the actual ingredient because then I would have to kill YOU, but I'll just say it rhymes with Wheeze Whiz.
