Fun Weekend & a Recipe

We had a great weekend! Saturday was the wedding & celebration of 2 good friends of ours. We saw it coming way back when the started to become special friends. Both are such nice people and deserve this new love & happiness in their life. It was a beautiful ceremony and the reception/party afterward was A LOT of fun!

Several of us brought side dishes for the meal. I did a new recipe and it was a hit. It disappeared quickly! Here it is~

Broccoli Corn Bread Casserole
1 stick of butter
1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed & drained (I chopped it slightly in the food processor)
1/2 c. finely chopped onion
4 large eggs, beaten
6 oz. lo-fat small curd cottage cheese
1 can creamed corn
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pkg (8.5 oz) corn muffin mix

Spray 9x13 backing pan and preheat oven to 400 degrees
melt butter in microwave
stir & mix in all ingredients (except muffin mix)
stir in muffin mix
pour in pan and bake for 25 mins

I doubled it and backed in a larger pan for 40 mins. D-lish!

Yesterday was my sister's bday so I made a carrot cake (for the first time!) The cake wasn't as moist as I'd like, so I will try a different recipe next time. I was very surprised by how easy it was. pics of either!

This blog will have a new look SOON!

  6. I am so glad to get this recipe...And it was so much fun meeting you! Wish you lived close by, we could be really close buds...guess I'll have to settle for a long distance relationship. I want to come back up sometime when things are not so visit with Claire and maybe we could do a power walk...then eat dessert! And BTW, I am impressed that you sew. I wish I knew how...maybe I'll take sewing lessons. Your family is adorable as are you!!
