November is a Month to be Thankful

Thanksgiving dinner laid out on tableI trust that the fall semester is going well and your academic measures are yielding positive results. As we move to the end of the fall semester, I want to encourage all students to maximize the use of college resources and services to get the most significant impact on your final grades.

If you have not visited the Learning Commons, please speak to a representative in Student Services on any one of the campuses or centers to get details on its location. Also, if you require any special accommodations to support you in your learning experiences while at the college, please meet with the director of Supportive Services for assistance.

Registration for the spring 2020 semester is online and available for all new and current students for spring classes. I strongly recommend all students to complete their registration before leaving for the December holiday break.

The month of November is also a month for spending quality time with family and sharing quality time and delicious foods with family and friends. As you prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, I would like to share a recipe for one of my famous holiday dishes. Each year, I look forward to spending quality time with family and friends during the Thanksgiving holiday with a delicious home-cooked meal. My menu this year will include turkey, ham, cornbread dressing, collard greens, string beans, mac and cheese, potato salad, corn pudding, banana pudding, sweet potato pie, dinner rolls and lemonade. Perhaps you would like to try one of my specialty dishes: corn pudding. The recipe is simple, and the ingredients included the following:

  • 1 can golden corn
  • 1 can cream corn
  • 1 box of Jiffy cornbread mix
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 8 ounces of sour cream
  • 1 stick of melted butter
  1. Mix both cans of corn. Do not drain.
  2. Add the Jiffy mix and add the two beaten eggs. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Add in the melted butter and sour cream. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Make sure all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Pour into a casserole dish.
  5. Bake at 325 until golden brown. Serve hot.

Enjoy your holiday and best wishes to you and your family for a joyful Thanksgiving celebration.
