Honoring the Hudson Family

Angela, the eldest daughter of the Hudson family, approached me about an idea she had for her mother’s birthday: an original portrait of all the Hudson children on canvas. The trick was that it had to be a surprise. I was tickled to collude with all the children for this unique gift for such a special woman. Brenda, the birthday girl, has 6 children (and one son-in-law), ranging in ages 5 to 27!  Angela and I collaborated to find the right color combination and composition. In time we found just the right image to last for generations.  The hardest part of the process was having to wait nearly TWO MONTHS before the family could unveil the gift on their mother’s birthday!  It looks so lovely hanging in their living room.

Aunt Millie’s Corn Dip Recipe

Brenda shared with me and my family an amazing corn dip recipe that we made this holiday season. I asked her permission to share it with you. Her Aunt Millie was raised in East Texas and died a little over a year ago. She never had children of her own, but loved the Hudsons as her own. She had quite a legacy that she left behind. I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe as you take a much needed rest after the holidays.

2 cans fiesta corn-drained
bunch of green onions chopped (about 6)
1 small can green chilies
2 cups shredded medium cheddar cheese
1 cup mayo
1 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
(optional) chopped jalapeno pepper

Mix all together and put in the fridge overnight.
