Baked Spinach with Corn

(Google  image)

INGREDIENTS

1-1/2 cup Spinach (cooked, cooled and blended)
1-1/2 cup  boiled  corn
1 cup Cheese (grated)
3 tbsp Butter
3 tbsp Maida (White flour)
3 cups Milk
1 tsp cracked Black Pepper ( to taste)
Salt to taste


METHOD

Melt the butter. Add the white flour and stir constantly. Cook till the raw smell of the flour goes away. Be careful to see that the flour does not turn brown.

When the flour is done, add it to the milk and whisk it so as to do away with the lumps.
Add pepper powder. Stir the white sauce until it becomes thick.

Put spinach, boiled corn and cheese to the white sauce. Mix it well. Season it with salt. Simmer for 5-7 mins.

Place in an oven-proof dish. Top with some more grated cheese.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees until the cheese melts and is slightly brown in colour.

Tastes yummy. Enjoy it with toasted garlic bread!!
I  had  this  at  a  restaurant   and  it  was  delicious, I am  going  to  make  this   at home. You  can  add  boiled  grated  potatoes  to  it   if  you  like.
It  very  hot  and  humid  these  days 110*F / 40 plus  C.
Yesterday  I  spent  time  at  a  friend 's  house   who  has  air conditioning, it  was  so  good. As  an  added   blessing  they  sent  their  car  both  ways. On  the   way  back  I  went   with  my  friend (  a  pastor 's  wife) to  pray  with  a  family whose  Dad  is   critically  ill  in  a hospital.We  are  praying  for  his  healing, he  does not   know the  Lord.
I  had  some  anxious  moments  in  the  begining  of  the  week,  but   the Lord   took  care  of it.
We  learn patience  and persevererance   through  trials and  wisdom  and   self  control too  ,  such  riches.
One  night  I  pulled  out  an  old   chorus  book  from  the  80s  and  sang  lots  of  scripture  based  songs from  there. It was  so  comforting.
God  gave  me  songs  in  the  night and  lightness  to  my  soul.

P.S.
Just  2  hours hours  after I  posted  this blog I  received  news from  a  Pastor  that  the  man  named  Anand , for   whom  we  were  praying  has  accepted  Jesus  as  His   Saviour  on  his  hospital. What  great  rejoicing   both  in  heaven  and on  earth!

Dear Amrita,
God is great, even though the dark valleys he's there, right by our side.
I'm so happy He sent you the songs during your night of fear, and chased the evil on door.
We should be more eager to witness about His greatness everlasting.
Thanks for sharing.

Prause God I received news this evening that the sick man we were praying for has accepted Christ as his personal saviour
