I know I need to be better about adding side dishes to my page. I think I found a good one from my family cookbook. This one is from my "Aint" Hazel...my mom's sister. I don't think I ever ate one meal at her house while I was growing up and frankly, I never knew she could cook...but this little recipe is a gem! Who knew?? We really liked this! I changed it up from the original a little bit by adding 1 extra cup of cheese. We had grilled rib-eye steaks the other day and this was the perfect little side to go with it! Make sure you allow the dish to set a few minutes after cooking so some of the liquid absorbs.

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
