Hubby brought home fresh sweet corn for supper yesterday. I'd never made it by myself, but it's very easy. The most time-consuming part is shucking it.
Drop it in boiling water very briefly. As my mom said, "All you want to really do is introduce the corn to the water. Corn, meet boiling water. Boiling water, meet corn. And then it's done." (paraphrased slightly :) )
While the corn boiled, I briefly steamed some fresh green beans and cut up a garden-fresh tomato, added olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Heaven. It was like sunshine in my mouth, the tomatoes especially.
Oh, I also made a batch of fresh biscuits. Neither Joshua nor I can get enough of biscuits. They're SO good.
Tomatoes and beans. Biscuits. Cranberry juice mixed with lemonade. Fresh sweet corn. Yes, we eat like kings.
Very happily. :)
Bliss. Sweet, crisp, juicy, delicious.
The corn we didn't eat I cut off the cobs to freeze.
That, my friends, is gold, right there.
Two more meals' worth!!
Next up: corn salsa!
