Favorite Meals pt3

The new addition to this littler series I have going is for side dishes. Why, you ask? Well because I’d rather have a side for dinner or lunch than to actually have a meal. I know, it’s insane, but that’s just how my brain works. If something takes around 10 minutes to make, it’s my kind of meal.

I love cooking side dishes. We went to my sister in laws house last night for Mother’s Day, and we had to make a side dish. I made corn casserole that I got off of allrecipes.com, which this side will be featured down below.

Let’s just go ahead and get started.


I told you this was going to be featured, haha! I love making this. It’s quick and simple. It takes no longer than 5 – 10 minutes to prep, and 45 minutes to bake in the oven to golden brown perfection. I can’t really explain the goodness of this side dish. It’s just amazing, and I love it!

I love this side dish, as well. It’s more for Thanksgiving and Christmas around my family, but it’s just so good! I’ve been eating this for as long as I can remember. It’s got just the right amount of sweetness. Now, I’m not sure if it’s a southern thing or not, but it’s really popular down here in the south, I know that much.

If you’ve never had spanish rice before…. what are you even doing with your side dish life? It’s amazing. I can/could eat a whole bag of it by myself. I like the Knorr Fiesta Sides one. Again, it’s quick and easy to make. Just follow the instructions accordingly on the package, and you have a heavenly goodness Mexican side dish.

I also like this one from Knorr. It’s the Rice Pilaf one, obviously. It’s just like the rice dish above, so just follow the instructions accordingly on the package, and you have a nice side dish. You can basically pair this with any main course meal you’re having.

I haven’t had this in forever, but it’s still my favorite. My mother in law makes this as a main course meal. She puts a cubed ham pack in with it, and it’s divine! But growing up, my dad made it as a side dish. We would have it with some sort of chicken. 


There’s my 5 of my favorite side dishes! I can make a slow cooker (or crock pot, as some like to call it) post, after I make some, haha!

Thanks for reading! <3
