Last week the company I work for had a pot luck to celebrate Christmas and all the hard work everyone has been doing. I came in around lunch time and my boss told me to grab some food before the weekly meeting. I did grab some mac n’ cheese and some corn salad, heated it up in the microwave for a few, and OH MAN, was I in heaven! One of our social workers, Judi, made the delicious corn salad. It was meant to be a cold salad, but not that day! This hot corn salad is a result from our delicious pot luck! Judi told me what was in it, so I just added a few additional ingredients, cooked it in the oven, and this is the result! SO delicious!!
