I got the recipe from an advertising junk mail newspaper that is delivered to my apartment building every week. I used my family as guinea pigs today at Thanksgiving Dinner as I thought it sounded good, and it makes too much for one person. Everyone tried it, and many went back for seconds.
1 cup elbow macaroni
2 cans creamed corn
1 can whole kernel corn, do NOT drain
1 stick butter cut up
8 oz velveeta cheese
Though I cut up a block of Kraft mild cheddar cheese I had instead of velveeta and the slices melted nicely as the casserole cooked
Mix the ingredients together in a 9 x 13 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for an hour stirring every 15 minutes.
It’s easy to make and yummy!
Just got the news that it will be released January 15th, 2014! Mark your calendars and prepare to party!
Scarf I knitted with Red Heart Boutique Fizzle yarn in “bluefin” while in Branson. I think I’ll be knitting more of these as Christmas presents, but not all the same color!
It seems Nicky has a new imaginary career to add to his list of dead imaginary careers.
In the past he’s claimed to be:
An author, an editor, investigative journalist, band promoter, and web designer each of which he’s lied about or been such a failure it’s provided much laughter. Now he’s claiming to be a memoirist. It provided me with a good laugh this morning.
My career is far from dead, it’s getting reinvented as not only a horror author but as a memoirist. I am trying to get back into the fray as an anthology publisher of all modern authors — the project I am doing, I am calling in my longtime friends to contribute as well for it and the anthology. The guidelines you saw on wordpress were only an outline and vague. Each part I go into great detail and each part I go into detail in private correspondence to go even further with it. As anthologist, I always write a test story for a submission call that is based upon the guidelines I arrange so to see if they are not too hard for the contributor to actually pull it off. You only want my career dead you bloated obese harpy.
Keep it class and professional Nicky the only one making you look stupid and bad is yourself.
I love this time of year for TV viewing. All this month there’s been plenty of horror movies to last me for another year. Some have been good, others not so good. Alien, the original Halloween, the original The Fog, even a couple of oldies with Bela Legosi. A surprise was the remake of The Evil Dead. I still prefer the original directed by Sam Raimi with Bruce Campbell, but the remake wasn’t too bad which surprised me. It’s not GREAT, but it doesn’t completely suck.
Nanowrimo is less than a week away. I scrapped my original idea of a “Midnight Diner” ran by a gay werewolf named Lloyd or Albert who secretly lusts after a bat shit insane author who terrorizes the waitresses once a month when his government check arrives in the mail. I decided there just wasn’t enough of an idea for a complete novel there.
I’m going to be in the anthology! I don’t know who else has been accepted yet, but I’m honored to have been accepted. A big thanks to the wonderful folks at Daverana Enterprises for taking a chance on me, and for their encouragement, constructive criticism, and professionalism. I can’t wait to see who else made it into the anthology!
I love winning free books. I was lucky enough to win free e-copies of “Night of the Chupacabra” (Book I) and “Curse of the Chupacabra” (Book II) by Michael Hebler this week. They’re now waiting patiently on my Kindle for me to finish reading Doctor Sleep by Stephen King so I can dive right into them!
