Sunday Supper Suggestion, Creamy Corn

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper, one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestions, and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!

There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

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 what is 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. I have always been really good with the main course, and the 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. Terry found this delicious recipe and proceeded to make it for our dinner. I can tell you this, we will make it again.
