So I may not be the best scooper-outer, but so long as this sucker makes it safely onto a plate no harm is done. Actually, if a little dripped on the floor I might pull the 5-second rule. Just saying. It’s that good.
I found this beauty over at “Gourmet” thanks to a link from the Kitchn. Miracle workers over there, they knew just what I wanted. It’s a great Ihavetoomanysummervegetablesinmyhouse recipe. Tons of tomatoes? check. Corn overload? check. Add in a healthy dose of cheese and a creamy sauce and you’ve got yourself a winner my friends.
It’s like biscuits-n-gravy meets vegetables, which was just the cure we needed for a case of the Rainy Mondays. Or rather the Monsooning Mondays. Yeah, alliteration makes things better.
A little secret: we actually didn’t have a ton of corn. My grandparent’s planted a late crop so that particular vegetable overload will probably be happening in a week or so, but what we did have was canned corn. I know, I know, such a cop-out. Trust me, no one will notice. Or care.
It’s not exactly a light recipe. Not for lack of trying on my part: I used almond milk instead of whole milk and 1/2 cup less cheese, but that barely put a dent in the calorie intake. No worries, just let it happen. Enjoy the splurge. You deserve it! It sticks to your ribs, and gives ’em a nice hug. It’s comfort food. So go. Be comforted. Comfort tastes delicious. Besides, you went running in the rain yesterday right? Oh wait, that was me. I thought the storm had passed and the raining was over! Silly me, the rain is never over on Monsooning Mondays.
ps- here’s a song!
