Time for Corn

We finally ran across a good price for corn on the cob – 96 cents for 6 ears of white corn, and cooked them up for dinner tonight. It had been so long since we’d had sweet corn that I’d forgotten that John tends to eat in circles AROUND the cob, while I eat it lengthwise, like a typewriter. (I’m not sure if our relationship can stand up to this kind of lifestyle difference!) The corn was delicious, sweet, and really hit the spot on yet ANOTHER 100 degree day. Sure, boiling the water over a hot flame wasn’t so much fun, but with excellent sweet corn as the end product, we were willing to sacrifice ourselves briefly for a good cause.
