Church Adult BBQ

Tonight we had our wards annual BBQ. They smoked up so much meat. We had ribs, brisket, pulled pork and sausages. The ward members all signed up to bring different things...assorted salads, potato dishes, rolls, homemade ice-cream and dutch oven cobbler, etc. Yummm...It was delicious! I brought a huge crock pot of homemade creamed corn. It's always a hit and goes fast. We had the best time laughing and visiting with our friends and neighbors. I love activities like this. The weather was perfect which only made the evening more enjoyable.
Here's the creamed corn recipe
(a smaller batch than I made tonight)
1 - 32 ounce bag of frozen kernel corn
1 quart of heavy whipping cream
1 cup of milk
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2-4 Tbsp. Melted butter
2-4 Tbsp. flour
Combine all ingredients except for the last 2. Bring to a boil. Mix together the melted butter and the flour into a paste and add to cream corn. Mix in well and allow it to thicken. Remove from heat and serve. Serve in a bowl with a spoon so you can enjoy every creamy drop.
I went up to the scrapbook store this morning and ran into not 1...not 2...but 3 famous scrappers! I had my picture taken with one of them. :o) I didn't look so good, but that's another story. Plus I finished Cole's costume today as well...CUTE! You'll have to wait till my next post to see...hee...hee...How about you guess which scrappers they were and I'll tell you who's right. :o)

Wow ... look at all that food! What a great tradition! My guess for the famous scrapper you met/saw is Heidi Swapp. Missy

I guess I'm not really up on my famous scrappers. From the looks of your scrapbook room YOU must be one yourself and of course I think Missy is amazing. So I'll be checking back to read all about them and see the pictures. And I want to see the Halloween costume.

The Church Supper looked wonderful. All that food...yum!!! Thanks for the creamed corn recipe!

Oh my,on Friday we were at a wedding at a plac e that features prime rib and one of the sides was a fabulous crean now I have my own version but for my family of 3 I'll have to figure out how to cut down the recipe! Anxious to see the costume too.

Marie said...

Oh, another recipe...not that I cook often or anything, but I like trying new things.

Becky said...

can you just tell me what I`m cooking for the next week? your recipes always look sooo good. maybe you could include the grocery list too. I`ll be trying the cream corn.

It is a miracle you do not weigh 300 pounds with all the cooking you do! And thanks for always sharing the recipes. I say that you ran into Becky H., Heidi S. and ???? But 2 out of 3 is not bad because I am pretty sure my 2 guesses are right. How lucky that you just get to pop into Scrapbooks, Etc. whenever you take a notion to...SO LUCKY!

Mom is right - when you are married to someone long enough, you tend to start looking alike. You and your husband look so much alike. Cute!
