Cream Cheese Corn and Sandwiches

I had half a block of cream cheese left over from the chicken recipe a few days ago and went looking for a vegetable dish to use it. There were a dozen or so dishes that made a creamy corn deal and I figured, hey, why not? Result? I should have listened to the Texans and added some spice. Otherwise, it was interesting.

I used about 1 pound of frozen sweet corn, half a block of cream cheese, 2 T butter, plus some garlic, onion powder, chili powder, and smoked paprika. I think some hot sauce and black beans might be a good addition.

With school about to start again, I need quick meals that I can take with me if I get hungry. So the old sandwich it is. Actually, this isn't as bad as it sounds because I hardly ever get sandwiches. I never buy bread or lunch meat or sliced cheese. This also marks the first time in my life that I haven't had mustard in the house. But I was super excited today to have my first homemade sandwich in... probably close to a year? Maybe. My memory sucks. Sourdough, pastrami, wasabi mayo, lettuce, and a bit of shredded cheese. My stomach was so happy. I can't wait to experiment with bread-y goodness again.

Once upon a time my mom used to make a cream cheese and corn dish. It was really really tasty.
