The Blue Collar Cocktail Hour Shower Recipes: Mac 'on Corn Casserole & Beanie Weenies
Last week, Mom and Super Mom SGM threw the man formerly [and sometimes still] known as the Blue Collar Scholar, i.e. Chris Horne, and his beautiful, blushing bride-to-be Dr. Heather Braun a wedding shower.
But in the style of Thursday's infamous intown Cocktail Hour, this wasn't your ordinary wedding shower.
The wish list? Anything you would "see on TV." The booty? Everything from the Bump-It to the Egg Genie to a toenail clipper with headlight and magnifying glass . . . amongst other things.
There was a tub of PBR, fresh made lemonade (spiked or not), $2 Chuck and "Proud to be Southern" apps like cornbread and pickles, as well as tin pans piping from the oven, smothered, covered and steaming in butter. Paula would be proud.
Here are the recipes:
Mac 'on Corn Casserole
2 cans of corn
2 cans of creamed corn
2 cups of dry pasta noodles (elbow mac in this case)
stick of butter
1/2 big block of Mexican style Velveeta, cubed
2-3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese (the more cheese, the better, in Mom's book)
Mix all of the ingredients in one of those big foil pans (or more earth-friendly, large casserole dish). Do not drain the juices from the corn - the water cooks the pasta. Bake all together for an hour at 375. No salted needed . . . the cheese covers it!
Blue Collar's Beanie Weenies
Giant can of baked beans
Pack of cocktail weenies
6 slices of bacon
Brown Sugar (to taste)
Mustard (to taste)
Maple Syrup (to taste)
1/2 onion, chopped
green pepper, chopped
3 pats of butter
2 cups of Jim Beam
Mix your beans, mustard, syrup, brown sugar, onion, pepper, butter, cocktail weenies and Jim Beam in large tinfoil pan (or big casserole dish). Layer slices of bacon on top. Sprinkle with more brown sugar. Bake for an hour at 375.
Try not to have a heart attack.
