Creamed Corn

If you have any family members that don't like cream cheese, this is not the dish for you!!  That being said, I'm a "cream cheese makes everything better" kind of person so I LOVED this dish!

My 11 year old Caleb (the non-cream cheese lover) took one bite and wasn't about to eat any more.  Being the awesome mother I am....pause for the lightening bolt to strike....I told him he could not have anymore dinner until he ate 5 more bites of the corn. 

He did pretty good with the first couple of bites, but by the time he got to his last bites he was dry heaving!  I though we were going to have a lovely mess all over the table to clean up!  Sorry...I know this is a recipe blog & that puking is about the last thing you want to read about here.  Especially since I"m trying to convince you that this ones a winner and that you need to try it!

Sorry, again.

Don't let my son's reaction sway you, it really is a wonderful dish that goes really well with any summer-time grillin' you'll be doing!
