Creamy Corn, the easiest side dish in the world!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We are in the throws of semi-retirement, ah but only for one of us! Terry is gearing down for retirement with part-time work, for fun. Yes that is right, when one reaches retirement, one can actually have a job for the fun of it..........and in a few more years, I can stop being envious and start having my own fun!

What if anything does this have to do with cooking or eating or anything else related to food, you might be asking. Well, let me explain. Since this man has some open time during this gearing down thing, he has been spending it in the kitchen (among other chores like gardening and wood splitting) cooking.

One of the purchases we made after the holidays last year, was a triple crockpot cooker. While we did not think it through in the process of being in the store and happily overwhelmed with the idea of making three (yep, count 'em) meals at once, the truth is, this unit is smaller than needed for main dishes. These crocks are only 2 quarts in size.

Turn that man loose, and the whole house was filled with such good smelling food when I got home from work!

But, never fear. This cooker set up is perfect for side dishes. I have always thought the 4 quart crocks were too big for side dishes unless you were cooking for an army. Side dishes have been a bit of an elusive problem for me anyway. I have always been really good with the main course, and desserts of course. Yet sides have to some degree been the last thing I think about and often I serve the same tired plate of crisp vegetables, a bowl of mashed potatoes and platter of steamed broccoli.......Ha, with help from my husband, I think those days are over.

  1. Ooh, that looks really good! And so easy! I'd never thought of using the slow cooker for side dishes, partly because mine is 6 quarts. However, I have a smaller one (4 quarts?) that I rarely use because it's not big enough for dinner + leftovers. Now I might have to unpack it. :)

  2. I've never thought of using cream cheese with corn. I'm going to think about that with some fresh corn I picked up today. (The FOUR dirty crocks make me think MY husband has been cooking. ;-) Cheers, Rocquie

  3. I tend to make the same sides over and over too. This looks absolutely delicious! Thank you for sharing.

  4. Hi Melynda,
    It's time for me to get a new set of crockpot, my old one of 20+ years need to be replaced. But it is kinda sentimental to me to get rid of it!
    Your cream corn looks like the perfect side dish for any meal. Thanks for sharing with CYB!
