I had to crack up when so many of you requested the recipe for my mom's corn pudding. I really don't remember when I first had it, but it was an immediate favorite. My mom got it from the newspaper when she lived in the Midwest and no one who has ever had it doesn't like it. I'm under direct order from one of my family members to make it at every holiday get together - and I'm happy to oblige, as I like it too. It's my most requested recipe - and it's NOT EVEN MINE.
In a large bowl, mix 1 can drained corn, 1 can cream style corn, 1 cup sour cream (can be low fat), 1/2 cup butter (melted, and butter is recommended for the best flavor), and 1 box of Jiffy corn muffin mix - the cheap stuff.
Every year, I have to call my mom, because I ALWAYS assume that there are eggs in the recipe - and every year, she has to remind me - it's FIVE ingredients.
Mix well and pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 until it is done. (edit - I usually make it in smaller pans, that way we have more crispy edges, which is what the family fights over.)
And that's the part where I get into trouble with you. Because that's how I cook. I don't know how long. Maybe an hour? I cook it until it's browned and no longer jiggly and a knife comes out clean in the center.
Today I am thankful that I do not have a loaded weapon in the house. Yes, seriously. It's been a rough day, ok? I'm CERTAIN that tomorrow I will have something better for which to be thankful.
Ok, ok. Today I am thankful for the free 44 ounce Diet Coke that I earned by filling out a survey. And I'm thankful that my husband took my martial arts shorts to have a zipper put in to replace the velcro that has gotten so worn out that it literally will no longer hold. Which has made both my profile interesting and my kicks somewhat unusual.
Don't ask for more from me today. I'm warning you.
