Country Corn

So I don't know about you, but I have been slacking in the kitchen for the past 6 weeks or so.  December is like hurry-and-fix-a-quick-dinner-before-we-run-to-the-next recital/concert/family party/ward party/school function/etc.  Let's just say we ate a lot of cheese crisps, spaghetti, taco salad, pizza...you get the picture.
Plus, when Holly and Nat come to town, we do more eating out than we do eating in.  Which I love by the way.  So now that Christmas is over and things have settled down, I am going to try and get cooking again!
I subscribed to a new cooking magazine called "Simple and Delicious" and this recipe is from this month's issue.  We loved it.  We totally devoured it and then licked the bowl clean.
6 green onions, chopped
3 Tbs. butter
1 package (16oz.) frozen corn (I used white corn)
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup half and half
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 cup tomatoes, diced

*Melt butter in a skillet.  Saute onions for a couple of minutes until tender.  Add corn and cook until heated through.  In a small bowl, combine cornstarch, half and half, water, salt and pepper.  Stir until smooth.  Add to corn.  Bring to a boil and then lower heat and cook for a few minutes until thickened. Stir in tomatoes and serve.
