Get 'er Done Cornbread Beanie Weenie Casserole

Apparently, Larry the Cable Guy brand Cornbread mix isn't selling so well even at Walmart, because it, along with Larry's Beer Bread, and Chicken Batter mix has hit the shelves of the 99 Cent Only Store.

So I bought it, and added a can of creamed corn, Ro-tel, and shredded cheddar cheese and baked it in a loaf pan. Get 'er done!

It was good, but I had leftovers, so I made Beanie Weenie Casserole by adding Weenies and Beanies (duh) along with chopped onions, barbeque sauce and some mustard, and topping with shredded cheddar cheese.

You can find Larry's mom's recipe  here .

Festooned Turkey for Thanksgiving

The 99 Cent Only Store had these lovely little fruit this week, small tangerines, pears, and apples, and I thought . . . hmmm, those would make my turkey look bigger! Actually, I've never decorated my turkey before, as I always thought it was rather unnecessary to add to its golden glow, but that's the way it is done in the magazines, and on the front of the box of stuffing, so I thought I'd give it a go. The interior flash photography did add a punch of color to the photo, so here is my "festooned" Turkey for Thanksgiving. In a week or so when this fruit ripens I'm sure I'll think of something to do with it, but right now it is certainly lovely to look at.
