We're more than ready for those wonderful tastes of summer -- strawberries, beans, peaches, corn... My stomach is growling in agreement as I write this! Well, Maggie here couldn't wait another minute. She had to have corn this weekend. She has deep midwestern roots, so I can't say I blame her. We picked out the best-looking ears at the store, shucked them and boiled them for only a minute or two. This was our Saturday lunch. No butter, no nothing to get in the way of that sweet, delicious, pure corn. There may have even been a few kernels eaten raw. And just think how much better it will be this summer, when we can walk up to Cheverly Community Market on a Saturday morning and return home with bags full of the best stuff on earth: fresh produce, in season!
