In 2002 we ran away from Illinois where we were born and raised, and started a new life in SW Florida. This blog is about me (an eccentric old artist), ROM (my Real Old Man), Isabella (our neurotic Standard Poodle) and Emmy (our crazy snake killing Jack Russell Terrier). Oh- and the neighborhood old people. Life is good in Florida!

As Requested- Recipes

Someone left a comment asking for the recipe for scalloped corn. I've made this dish for so long I don't even measure anything, so this is a guess-LOL

2 cans of creamed corn
1 pkg saltines
1/2 cup of milk
2 eggs
Butter or margarine

Crush the pkg. of saltines (you know the sealed pkgs that come in a box- just one of the pkgs.) and set aside. In a bowl beat the eggs and milk, mix well. Then add the creamed corn and mix well. Sprinkle some pepper ( pepper to taste- we like it peppery) into the mix. Now add about half of the crushed saltines, add a little more if the mix is still too soupy. Put it all in a greased square casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining cracker crumbs over the top and then  dot with butter. Bake in preheated 350 oven until bubbly and lightly browned on top- approx. 30 - 45 minutes.

We have this often because ROM will only eat green beans and corn- that's it. None of my tempting to get him to eat other veggies has worked. And believe me, during the 27 years we've been married, I've tried. He'll eat raw veggies in tossed green salads, but of course he smothers it all in dressing.

I'll write up the recipe for my fried chicken and gravy tomorrow....


  1. oh. my. gosh! this sounds terrific! i even think danny would like it! thanks for sharing!

  2. Hope he likes it, Jayedee. It's pretty much a staple in the midwest. Some people use one can of creamed corn and one can of regular corn, and some mix in corn meal instead of the crushed saltines. Play with it make it your own way.
