Black Bean Salsa

Who doesn't love snacking?  I know we do and we do it often!  There is just something about eating with hands. Hand reaches to chip, to salsa and dip, to veggies (a least one son's hand does) to hungry mouths that await anxiously.  Snack, snack, smack!  Yes, that was my boys! They tend to get a little overzealous with chips and snacks and anything they can make a loud, mouthy sound with.  I love my boys..but let's keep it quiet, okay?  This lip smacking Black Bean Salsa was just another noise in the bowl app, awaiting my hungry boys.  I adapted the recipe from a can of Bush's Best Black Beans!

Microwave Chili Beans Succotash

My middle son, my oldest twin and self proclaimed vegetarian (although will eat chicken strips and an occasion cheese burger) loves spicy food.  Anything with beans, chilies and a bite is just fine with him.  He even eats onions like potato chips, honest!  This recipe was thrown together for him..a little on the mild side tonight after eating raw onions by the handful!  He must have approved as he gobbled up two bowls.  Made in the microwave, this was a one dish supper.  You can easily cook this on the stove, in the oven or a big pot in the crock pot.  My advice...at least double the recipe.  You will be glad you did.

Oven Roasted Corn

Fourth of July, a fun day at the beach and splash park.  Hubby had the grill filled to the brim with leg quarters...just because we Love them.  ~smile~  I needed a new way to cook corn besides the every day, ho hum, boiling method.  I do love it off the cob and fried..mmmmmm!!!!  This is an easy peasy, roasted in the oven, with the husk on,  way to cook corn on the cob!  No prep work needed.   Yeah, I'll all for that!  It was so sweet and delicious, we didn't add a thing to it.  No butter, salt, pepper, garlic, herbs ... nothing at all.  Of course, you may want to enhance the corn by doing so.

Buttermilk Corn Cornbread

Moist buttermilk cornbread with sweet kernels of corn nestled inside.  MMMM....Pass the butter, please!  Hubby was brought up with sugar cooked in his cornbread.  Being from the South, I was not.  Do you or don't you, add sugar to your cornbread?

Creamed Corn and Bacon

First you need to get little helpers to shuck and silk the corn for you.  You then can use a creamer to make creamed corn or cut the kernels off, put in blender with a little water to make creamed corn. 

Fry 6 pieces of bacon...saving the drippings.  Let your children crumble the bacon once it is cool.  If your children are like mine, you might as well cook the whole package.  They like to eat the bacon while making crumbles.  ~smiles~

Once the corn is creamed,  add water if it is too thick, put in a microwave safe dish.  Add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.  Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of bacon drippings.  Cook for 3 minutes in microwave.  (can be cooked on stove)  If it is still too thick add more water...too thin, cook longer.  Keep cooking at 2-3 intervals keeping an eye on it.  It is done when the starchy taste is gone.  Add chopped bacon and watch it disappear!~
