It’s been a busy few weeks trying to move things and get settled in.
It’s amazing that my family, despite how busy mom was, still thought they needed to eat 3 times a day!
With both houses in chaos and my kitchen half missing, the crock pot became my best friend and this particular recipe, Macaroni and Corn, is one of my favorites!
I had never even heard of this dish until we moved to Southern Iowa. Now I think I see it at almost every potluck dinner we attend. I can understand why! It is so easy to prepare and everybody loves it!
Crock Pot Macaroni and Corn
Mix together in crockpot:
1 cup uncooked macaroni
1 can whole kernel corn (undrained)
1 can cream style corn
1 stick butter or oleo
1/2 pound of Velveeta
Pour over the macaroni and corn mixture and stir. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. (Or you could place in a casserole dish and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.)
This makes a terrific side dish and travels well. I like to add chopped ham or browned hamburger to make it a complete meal in one.
How easy is that? You don’t even have to cook the macaroni!
Comfort food from a crock pot- now that’s a good thing!
