Friday Friend Recipe #149 -- Swiss Corn Bake

My Friday Friend Cookbook Countdown #149!

Barb's Swiss Corn Bake

and you know all the whys and wherefores of this countdown, right? Homemade cookbook, friends contributed, Handyman said I couldn't/wouldn't do it, I'll show him, yadda yadda yadda....
...and the rest is cookbook history!

If you like corn and Swiss cheese, you'll like this. Personally I love the crispy soda cracker crunch on top!

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

This is Barb's gazillionth recipe in the countdown.
You can see them all right here!  Just click!
She has a gazillion more to go--that means a gazillion more stories--and I'm drawing a blank.

So ( I can't believe I'm doing this--sigh-- here goes.....)
One time it was my 25th wedding anniversary and we took over a bar.
I have no idea who took this picture, but all that gang is my family, so taking 'over' a bar is relative...we had the numbers.
Anyway, that's me in the sun glasses and Barb in the striped shirt.  It was nighttime and we were inside--a few gin and tonics might have played a part in the following photos.

And then my family decided to dance--we were celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary after all.  Oh..and for the record, these are my 'in-laws', but I claim them as mine.  I kind of like them--a lot!  (I'm very lucky that way).
So is my family dancing.  All except the guy on the right...he was not family. We had no idea who he was for a while. 
  His name was Richard and he had had a lot to drink and just hanging with us.

Poor Richard even believed my sister-in-law, Meghan when she said we were members of a Christian band.  He was just wondering if we were part of something--there were so many of us--so she said the first thing she thought of.  It's not a bad gig actually.

So, Richard hung around us....

Danced with us... or danced with Barb anyway...

Thank goodness he made himself scarce when Leslie decided to show us her panties!  I think she had a heart embroidered on them.
Um....the Handyman seems real interested in them too!
(it's a good thing my thighs touch, so you couldn't see MY panties!)

Oops--I might have spoken too soon!
What the heck were we doing???
Whatever it was--Barb thought it was funny!

And that's my Barb story--- her very short stint in a Christian band-- dancing with her fan Richard and doing crazy celebrity things like lying on pool tables. (?)
One last word---all the brothers, brother in laws, sisters and sisters in law, and Barb kept waiting for the bartender to yell "last call" for drinks--but we live in Nevada--there is no last call--as long as you're buying, they're serving--24 hours a day.
We got home about 4am. 

Recipe #149 is done!
Only 145 left to go!
