Corn Casserole, a potluck favorite.

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen creative writing venture/story about life.  We hope you enjoy it...

While not particularly well written, these are the stories about folks I have had the pleasure to know and serve, this is the story about Laurie.


S.I.M.P.L.E., great skills, and attributes to possess. Also, we are grateful. Pretty much every day we are sincere, hard-working, and love our family. We are also homeowners, voters, frugal and happy. We tend to like the quiet moments of each day, laughing, we make do with what we have, and when possible we make what we need ourselves.

The building I work in started out as a children's orphanage hospital in 1886.

Later remodeled for senior housing in 1978.

The well-established rhododendrons
are always spectacular!
And what might be the reason for all this banter on a Friday evening? Well, to share a bit about us and how we live, which can be fun. Oh, and there is Laurie and her Corn Casserole. You see my husband loved it. He is a casserole kind of guy. This could actually be another story about work because Laurie is one of my tenants.
This wonderful tree is right outside my office window.

Those with gardens letting the neighbor know the radishes are ready. 

We had a tenant luncheon at work on Thursday, a combination BBQ and potluck. The Burgers and Dogs were provided for the tenants and the side dishes came from the tenants. Also, there was cake and root beer floats and after the meal, live entertainment. One of the side dishes was this Corn Casserole.

Lots of wonderful food to share, warm the heart and enjoy time with your neighbors.

When I told Laurie that my husband loved her Corn Casserole, she just smiled from ear to ear and then really spilled the beans. She said that the Corn Casserole was one of her "frugal fifty" that she would teach at church. And of course, immediately the following words tumbled out of my mouth "please, I want them all!".

One can never have enough of those old-time recipes that are easy to put together, can usually be assembled from what you have on hand (even at the end of the month) and they always taste wonderful  You know the old-time recipes found on your grandparents table, the ones you looked forward to being served each and every time you went home to visit.....
