scalloped corn (which we make every year - no one seems to ever eat it but if we don't make it people are bummed. We're weird)
I've heard of creamed corn and I've heard of scalloped potatoes but never heard of scalloped corn. Is it like a combo of the two?
I understand the never eating it part. I love to make homemade cranberry sauce cause it's so festive and I don't really know why I like to make it so much but the problem is I really dislike cranberries and my family would rather have the sauce from a can so there is always a little bowl on untouched homemade cranberry sauce just cause I think it's fun to make.
I am still planning our christmas menu. This year I would like to try a couple new dishes. We usually have a traditional roast dinner with Turkey, cranberry and sage stuffing, roast potatoes with bacon, saffron mash, sprouts with pancetta and other winter vegetables with a nice dressing.
This year we will still have turkey but I'd like to try a couple new side dishes. I am getting some really good ideas from this site so I'm excited.
Breakfast is usually ham, croissoints or bread rolls since we don't have much time because we visit my in laws for a couple hours around mid day.
Desert is an array of seasonal biscuits, marshmallows, chocolate, cakes, apple crumble with vanilla/cinnamon custard or Winter Fruit Trifle.
for christmas we do it alittle different then the turkey.im cuban and puerto rican and so is my wife so for christmas we will make pernil( pork shoulder) rice and black beans,plantanos maduros(fried sweet bananas) picado(ground beef seasoned with spanish seasonings) and empanadas for a little snack before we eat.
the most wonderful time of the year
