Dinner was reruns, so here's a favorite of mine:
Easy Tamale Muffins (Lighter than masa)

Foil baking cups or non-stick muffin pan sprayed with cooking spray.
2 pkgs (8½ oz each) corn bread muffin mix
1 can cream style corn (14½ oz)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1½ cups Mexican cheese blend, divided
1½ cups chopped cooked chicken (use a rotissarie chicken, easy!) 
¾ cup red or green enchilada sauce
Heat oven to 400º. In large bowl combine muffin mix, corn, and eggs. Stir until just moistened. stir in 1 cup of cheese. In another bowl toss the chicken with enchilada sauce.
Fill each of 24 foil lined muffin cups or muffin tin with 2 T of the batter. Place 1 T of the chicken mixture in the center of each and cover with about 1 T of the batter.
Bake 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Sprinkle tops with remaining cheese, bake another 3 or so minutes until cheese is melted. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to wire racks. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
I won't have a blog up tomorrow. Will explain later.... Everything is OK!
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

National Cheeseball Day

National Cheeseball Day is a day to stuff yourself with cheeseballs. But wait!!! What kind of cheeseball are we talking about? There's the light and airy, puffy cheeseball that you munch on for a snack by the dozens. There is also the cheeseball, often decorated with nuts, that sits on a party tray until spread on a cracker. Is this a celebration derived from the snack industry, or the dairy industry?  
When it comes to the cheeseball snack, we are certain that you can't eat just one. Not even a handful. Cheeseballs are addicting. Place a bowl of cheeseballs on the counter, and watch them disappear right before your eyes. Toddlers and young kids are Cheeseball hounds. So are teenagers and adults. In other words, everyone lives cheeseballs.
The cheeseballs of holiday trays is equally loved. Strangely, it is wildly popular around the holidays and hard to find other times of year.

Celebrate today with cheeseballs (both kinds). Serve them after dinner during your favorite Television show, or whenever its convenient.
