OK – I asked for funny and you played along – thank you so much. I’ll tell you what made me spit Coke (you owe me a keyboard) is the comment to the post above this one in which I initially said “It’s 724 pounds and on its way here!” to which my quick witted reader said “is it your MIL?” I love my MIL BUT that just caught me in the funny bone! And no it wasn’t my MIL, it was 2000 of the Hope Calendars :)

There are no voting booths or political debates at Life’s Images today but I thought it’d be fun to let you be the winner on Election Day! Email me with the name of your favorite good ol’ American dish (and recipe if you want!) and you will receive a gift certificate (electronic) for 10% percent off your next order at Life’s Images.

Yummy – chicken and dumplings, chicken fried steak, steak on the grill and corn casserole!

Corn Casserole (I am told it is wonderful and simple – you can’t mess it up!)
8oz of Sour Cream
1 can corn – drained
1 can creamed corn
1 stick melted butter
1 box Jiffy Cornbread Mix

Mix all ingredients in 9×9 or 13×9 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 60 minutes!!

And a sneak peek before someone hurts me :)

Anonymous: Jill Y sent me. This is a cute picture. What great idea!
