A Yummy Side Dish Recipe

Happy Tummy Tempting Tuesday!!!  Before I share the recipe, I must tell you I have been trying FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH to decide between watching what I eat so that I do not need to exercise or exercising so that I do not need to watch what I eat!  Anyone else there?  And "how's that workin' for ya?"  Mkay...same here!   I must do better in November because the holidays are coming, and we all know what happens once Thanksgiving arrives!  Any shred of self-discipline I had to begin  with concerning my sweet tooth completely vanishes!  Ahhhh.....On that note, here is the recipe for this Tuesday, and I am off to bake a pan of brownies for tonight (because it isn't November yet!)!  :)

(Growing up, this was one of my most favorite side dishes my Mom cooked)

2 cans Mexicorn (I have also substituted frozen sweet corn.)
1 bag Saffron rice
1 stick of butter
1 can cream of celery soup
8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese (We use mild!)

Cook rice. Add butter, corn, soup and 1 to 1 1/2 cups of cheese.  Mix well.  Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350*.

Don't forget to check out yesterday's Joyful Mom Monday post.  You can link up all week long.  We'd love to read your thoughts!



  1. lol--I made our brownies last night! :) Baby needed them! :)

  2. we decided that exercising is better than watching what we eat..many more benefits to exercising.

  3. You feed that baby well, Jen! My babies all needed large amounts of ice cream and brownies!!!

    As for watching what we eat or exercising...For me, it's about motivation and convenience. It's more convenient for me to watch what I eat, and I have little motivation to use very rare extra time to put on an exercise dvd or walk the treadmill. But alas, I keep telling myself that if I really wanted to, I'd make the time! We'll see how November goes!
