Blog Party Day 4: Holiday Cooking

We've made it to day 4 of MomDot's Blog Party! Today's sponsors are Bottlewise Duos and Glow Mama.

The question of the day:
What is your favorite holiday recipe? Describe your holiday table.
What is your biggest holiday cooking disaster?

Since my mom does all the cooking for the holidays, I don't have too many recipes to share. I do, however, usually make a side dish to take along when we head to my parents. This year, I'm planning to take an incredibly yummy baked corn dish. It's so simple too!

Mix together:
  • 2 cans of corn
  • 1 can cream corn
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • pouch of corn muffin mix
*Bake at 375 for 35 minutes. I drizzle a melted butter and honey sauce over the top. Mmmm...

Our holiday table is busy! We have anywhere from 10 to 20 people there, depending on if anyone has to work or is at their in-laws, etc. Plus, we have friends who are always invited to share our holidays, who may or may not come. The food is set up buffet style, with a little of everything, from turkey and ham, to every yummy side you can imagine, to tons of desserts. It's loud with laughter, and dinner ends with lots of full bellies.

I don't have any cooking disasters to share, at least not any holiday related. I will share a quick, almost kitchen related disaster from last year.

We always put our tree up on a table, so the cat doesn't climb it, and no one knocks it over. I picked out our tree last year, and it ended up just a bit too big. I asked hubby to trim off some of the trunk, only to realize we didn't have anything resembling a saw. This is what happened:
Please note, that's my bread knife! Are you kidding me??
