New car

Posted By: Jared
Sep 27th, 2011
With time flying by and Kaden needing to go to preschool soon, we decided that we needed to get a car so allie has something to drive while I am at work.  My friend, Shawn, has a Nissan 300zx and a bunch of parts for it and knows about the car so I figured this would be a good car to get.  We looked everywhere and even drove up to Ogden looking around for a good one. Finally we found one listed in the wrong section of ksl and it was local too!  After work, me and Shawn went to go look at it and see if it was worth buying. We gave him an offer and then left to think about it and if it was worth what he was asking. A few days had passed and I sent him an email asking if he had sold it yet and gave him another offer which he decided to go for.

The car is a blast to drive and it has 4 seats which is great since we have 2 kids.  There were a few small issues like a blinker bulb that was out, the driver side mirror was taped on and the driver seat was all torn up.  These were easily fixed, but we do need new front tires for it which will be a bit more expensive so we are looking around for some cheap ones. They are 15's and have 4 lug nuts in case anyone finds any around :)

The BEST Creamed Corn

Posted By: Allie
Sep 9th, 2011

1/2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream

1/2 cups Milk

1/2 teaspoons Salt

1 Tablespoon Sugar

16 ounces, weight Frozen Whole Kernel Corn (sweet If Possible)

1 Tablespoon Butter

1 Tablespoon All-purpose Flour

⅛ teaspoons Black Pepper

In a large pan on medium high heat, add heavy cream, milk, salt and sugar. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and add frozen corn. Bring to a boil again.

In a separate small sauce pan, melt butter and add flour. Stir to combine.

Add flour and butter to the corn and stir to combine. Reduce heat to medium and cook until it begins to thicken. Turn off heat, add black pepper and season to taste.

Note: this recipe can be doubled.

I can't remember ever having creamed corn until I met Jared. He would have me buy the canned "creamed corn" and I never really cared for it. I came across this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. Let me tell is THE BEST. If you do buy the canned creamed corn, you will NEVER want to buy it again. ...though it may be cheaper. Some things though, you just can't subsitute, and I will never settle for the canned stuff again now that I have this recipe. Kairi has never liked corn so she didn't want to try it, but Kaden would have eaten the entire batch if i'd let him.
