What's for Dinner?

A little about McCall:
McCall Farms is a family-owned, 170 year-old company based in Effingham, SC. They gather their crops from all over South Carolina, North Carolina and other southern states.  McCall Farms produces more than 40 different products under the Margaret Holmes®, Glory Foods®, Bruce Yams® and Peanut Patch® brands, as well as private-label and foodservice products, which are sold nationwide.
Do you use canned goods when you are cooking your Thanksgiving or yet to come Christmas dinner?  I have to admit that I do, you can find some really great ideas using canned goods and it saves time, money, and sanity when you have a big family like I do.
McCall Farms offers some awesome food in a can, and I not only use them at big events such as Christmas but I also use them daily.  The food is fresh and can be used right out of the can or you can add a little something to it to make it semi-homemade.  I have to admit I love fresh out of the garden foods but I can take a can of collards, cook me some ham, add the can collards and they are just as good if not better than homemade.  A little salt,a dash of pepper, and it's a meal in less the time and you savage your sanity with more time to spend with your family and friends.
Now for the fun part, they are hosting a cooking contest.  You can get all the information here, go enter for your chance to win big.  There are 25 days left to enter so hurry and get your recipes ready and get entered! Because the winner will be selected by the number of votes your recipe gets, you need to get it out there ASAP so people can vote. 
Good Luck to each of you.
