Corn Corn Glorious Corn
There is an adorable old man that sells corn on our corner every year. We wait for him with baited breath because it is cheap and simply the best corn on the plant. He grows it right here in the neighborhood and then sells it for a mere $4 a dozen.
We all look forward to his return each summer and today on the way home from the post office the boys proclaimed, "HE'S THERE!! Mom the corn guy is out!"
So we stopped bought a bag of corn for lunch and a few cucumbers. We headed straight into the house to prepare our feast. I put a couple chicken breasts on the grill for protein because it just wouldn't be right to only eat corn and cucumbers (right?). And then the boys and I started shucking.
Between the 4 boys and I we ate 11 ears of corn, 3 chicken breasts, and 2 large cucumbers. It was delicious!
Please note the kernels on Tanners face and yes even in his hair :) The image without kids is the aftermath.
