I have teamed up with my 6 favorite blogging friends to show off some of our Thanksgiving favorites!
This is the recipe for easy corn casserole that has to be on our family Thanksgiving table every year. My mother, my mother-in-law, and I each have a holiday where we serve the meal at our house with a certain recipe we each have to bring and we have been doing this for 33 years, and Thanksgiving is always at my house. I have always felt blessed because my parents and my husband’s parents celebrate every holiday together. I feel like this was so unselfish for our parents to do and it was great for us because we did not have to leave one house and go to the other parent’s house. By doing holidays this way, our parents became very close to each other, and that made holidays very fun and memorable for us and my daughter. There was always a lot of laughter!
My husband passed away when he was 37, almost 20 years ago. He had battled cancer in his twenties and we thought he was doing good so his death was unexpected. The first holidays without him was hard and it was a struggle when we all came together because we missed him so much. It was very painful but we did it for my daughter and because we needed each other to get through the pain. I felt like she lost her dad but she shouldn’t have to lose her grandparents, and our wonderful holidays. We all have a strong faith in God so we knew that he would get us through it.
Almost one year later, I was introduced to a wonderful man by one of my closest friends. He was very good to me and my 14-year-old daughter, and we married 6 months afterward. You would think that this would be the end of celebrating holidays together but instead, everyone welcomed my husband into the family with open arms and I give the Lord all the credit. My family and my late husband’s family still come to my house on Thanksgiving and we have a wonderful time, and I am so thankful.
This recipe for easy corn casserole was given to me by my sister-in-law and it is amazing! It is incredibly easy which makes it nice when cooking a Thanksgiving meal. You know the day after Thanksgiving when you are thinking about all the wonderful leftovers in your refrigerator, this will be the one you are thinking about the most. It is that good! Seriously, I want this corn casserole even more that that dressing in the Tupperware container and maybe even more than the leftover pecan pie!
