OH, YUMMY CORN!!!!
There is something about fresh corn on the cob that says summertime and family. I remember as a little girl the sound of the big paper bag rustling as my Dad would come through the front door with his arms full of corn. It was more than just dinner, it was an event. The three of us girls would go out on the back deck and help Dad peel back the layers of husk. As I sat out yesterday with my three children and my nephew, it warmed my heart to know that I was creating a memory and not just making dinner! Oh, how much fun they had peeling the layers of the husk and feeling the cool smooth yellow kernels.This biggest prize of all was watching their little hands wrapped around the ends of the cob as they made their way around the cob not leaving one kernel behind. So when you are thinking about what to cook for dinner tonight, make a memory not just dinner!
