Sunday lunch after church has always been sort of a formal meal in our house. Lately, we've started a new tradition by allowing the atheist of the house (me) to cook while the Christians are at church. I really enjoy it, and it allows me to try new things, and refine my cooking skill. I thought it would be fun to start a cooking thread, and discuss things we like to cook. On this week's menu: I started with one of these: Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! They were buy one, get 3 free...so it made them only 5 bucks! After browning in an 80 year old cast-iron skillet (thanks grandma!) I placed them in a crock pot, along with baby carrots, onions, roasted garlic, bacon, along with a dash of teriyaki, Worcestershire, and bbq sauce. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! After cooking for 4 hours, I finished them in the oven, topped with bacon: (just to give them a little more color) Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

Reciepe: Spoiler For this you will need 1 can of creamed corn 1 can of whole corn (or fresh corn is better, if you got it) 3 large dollups of sour cream (approx 1/2 cup) 2 eggs (beaten) 1/2 of stick of butter (melted) 1 handful of shreaded cheddar cheese 1 package of corn bread mix. 1 cup of crushed Ritz crackers or bread crumbs. Mix corn, eggs, butter, cheese, cornbread mix and sour cream in a bowl. Pour into a buttered casserole dish, and top with crushed crackers or bread crumbs. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake for 30 minutes at 350F. Then uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes. The Christians were pleased with my offering. My pork came out fork tender, and very juicy (the pork loin is so lean, it's really easy to dry it out), and my corn pudding was perfect (last time I added some sugar, and it turned out way to sweet) So...what you got cookin', good lookin'?
