I don’t know about you, but when it comes to dinner I can usually figure out the main dish pretty quickly but when it comes to sides, it’s another story. I usually do some plain ole’ rice, or some broccoli, a simple side salad, or Eric’s famous mashed potatoes. That’s it. I know, lame, right? So I have been on the hunt for some convenient and tasty side dishes, that also don’t break the bank.
After yesterday’s Fan-freakin’-tastic Brown Sugar Glazed Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Streusel, I decided to try another side dish from
this month’s November’s CBOM. Corn is another side that gets regularly rotated around these parts but I am tired of it. That is why I was excited to give this southern classic creamed corn a try. Simple ingredients combined with simple preparation transforms plane ole’ frozen corn into a creamy, dreamy, savory concoction that is the perfect accompaniment to every thing from meat loaf to BBQ ribs (all of which are also Southern staples)!
I am happy that I have another great side dish to add to my arsenal!
