Welcome to my "Open House" blog party which means I hope you bloggers will link up a post about Hospitality, Home Decor, DIY, Crafting, Antiquing, Collecting or Anything About Home!  Have you recently found some great bargain for your home - we want to see it.  Maybe you baked something wonderful this morning - share it!  Do you sew or crochet or knit - we'd love to see your project!

Here is what I have to share:

Cooler days bring on an appetite for some comfort type food matched with salads that are healthy....

This is a recipe I made for our family back in the 1980's and we often had it for dinner.  It is a Mexicorn Beef Pie recipe from one of those Bake Off Cookbook's you pick up while waiting in the line at the market.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Here is the recipe:  For the filling:  1 lb ground beef, 1/2 tsp salt,1/2 tsp chili powder, 1 cup shred cheddar cheese
1/2 cup barbecue sauce, 12 oz can of mexicorn, 6 oz tomato paste

For the crust: 1 cup sifted flour, 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal, 2 Tb sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 egg, 1 cup of cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef and drain - stir in remaining ingredients.  Grease a 9" deep dish or 10" pie pan.  In a large bowl, blend crust ingredient reserving 1/2 cup of the cheese. Mix well and spread over pan.  Mix all filling ingredients well and pour into shell.  Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.  Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes.  I didn't do it but thought about sprinkling crushed corn shells on top for the last few minutes.

Also, because you asked:  My version of Waldorf Salad:
Peel and chop 3 large apples, add 1/2 cup raisins (crasins would also be good), 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 1/3 cup honey and 1/3 cup mayo - mix together (you could also add shredded carrots) If still to dry - add a little more mayo

Please join in by linking at the bottom below!  Also, my new camera arrived today - so all I need to do is "READ THE BOOKLET" and learn how to use it.  It is a Nikon D5100 and I hope I can "figure it out"......
I am sharing this post with: Feathered Nest Friday and Home Sweet Home and Simple and Sweet Friday

I think you can tell we are all just slobbering over your recipe! It just looks so good.
I love the colors of your blog. I helped the little ladies in my bible study work on charity quilts today. It was so fun and they are sweethearts.
I am getting in the quilting mood with the cooler weather.
