Christmas and New Years have passed. It's the middle of January already! I suppose it might be time to take the Christmas tree down. I enjoy it so much though. It may stay up to be enjoyed for a little while yet. =)

With 2012 came the resolutions! What were yours? How is it going for you "keeping them"? I resolved to attain better health. So I am so excited about joining the Body By Vi 90-Day Challenge! What makes it even more exciting is I am going to be the Mother-of-the-Bride! My daughter got engaged on New Year's Eve! She and I are doing the challenge together...getting healthier...losing weight...while wedding planning!

Thanksgiving Recipe ~ Baked Corn

Baked Corn is a Thanksgiving Favorite for our family as well as throughout the year. I always make it for our Christmas Dinner too. It's prepared with ingredients you may keep around in your pantry, freezer and refrigerator.


4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 tablespoons butter, melted
4 cups corn

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs and milk together. Stir in flour until well blended. Add sugar, salt, pepper and melted butter. Add corn and stir gently. Pour into 9x13 baking dish that has been greased or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until knife inserted into center of casserole comes out clean. All ovens bake differently, so you may need to bake it a bit longer than 45 minutes.

Favorite Thanksgiving Traditions & Recipes

With Thanksgiving coming up next week, I thought it would be fun if we shared our Traditions & Recipes for the day.

I'll start =)

We are blessed to live nearby my inlaws and they host Thanksgiving giving us the opportunity to spend time with the members of our BIG family. My husband has 4 sisters, so between all of us and the many daughters, nieces... we have a great meal. Of course we always have the traditional foods of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, green beans, bread/rolls, pies, but many other delicious foods show up as well to round out the meal.

I usually volunteer to make a number of things and one of them is often homemade bread or rolls. Here is my go-to recipe for Homemade Bread from a previous blog post

What is your favorite Thanksgiving Recipe?

Veteran's Day

I ran across this Veteran's Day Tribute & wanted to share.

“Thank You, Soldiers" was written by music teacher Michael Souders and his wife, Angela, was recorded by the 3rd graders at Tussing Elementary School, in Colonial Heights, Virginia, and subsequently uploaded with a picture video to Youtube. The song was intended to be a heart-felt ‘thank you’ to veterans and current serving soldiers.
