mother’s day recap & menu plan monday

Mother’s Day was a good day! It was the second time teaching the junior high girls at church and I was actually really early. The morning went unusually smooth.
Class went really well too.
Before church they had all moms draw a number and then right before service they drew out three numbers. I was really surprised when my number was the third one called. I was given a gift card for Chili’s (it works at on the border and macaroni grill too).
Amanda gave me a candle holder centerpiece and a funny but sweet card… my secret sister at church gave me a really pretty frame and sweet card… and my friend Miki who is vacationing in Mexico left a sweet card for me too. Mom gave all of us pretty plants and Matt’s mom gave me a gift set of Sung perfume and lotion! I loved the things Izzy and Emelia made for me at school.

We came home and I fixed a quick lunch and then took a nap. Too long!
I had to make corn casserole for mom’s… I almost slept too late!

corn casserole…
1 can cream corn
1 can whole corn drained
1 pkg jiffy corn bread mix
1 stick of butter
chopped onion (half)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup cheddar cheese

saute onions in butter until clear and mix with remaining ingredients saving half the cheese to sprinkle over the top. Bake at 350 for about an hour. Sprinkle remaining cheese and let melt.

This was really yummy. I take it almost every time we have a get together by request.
It’s not diet food for sure.
There was not one crumb left. Not one!

My brother Mike and his family were there and my oldest brother Jody was there with two of his daughters.

Here’s Emelia with my niece Candace’s baby… and my niece Toni with her hub…

Mom made ham and rolls, chocolate lush and apple dumplings…

My menu…
tonight we’re going to have tacos, because I have three avocados ready to make guac.
tomorrow we’ll have chicken and potatoes. (I’ll be at FLO)
wednesday we’ll have meatless spaghetti and garlic toast (ww) with salad.
thursday I’m going to try the recipe Paula brought…
Friday we’ll probably order pizza or get gyros to go.

I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day. I did!

    Annie, Sounds like you had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Your recipe sounds great! Glad you were able to get together with kinfolks for a happy day. We had planned to do dinner with local daughter and family, but they woke up Sunday morning with stomach virus, so Ed and I did our own celebration. Got calls from all kids and enjoyed that. Have a happy week!

    What fun! You were really blessed. My sister helped Scamp make me a card from her last week. They traced her little hands and put a picture of her on the outside. It was so sweet. But, Scamp thought it was her card and didn’t want me to keep it. I snuck it away from her when she wasn’t looking though. Great pics!
