Well helloooooo there. You're new around here aren't you? I KNOW I haven't seen the likes of you here in the neighborhood....and yet there you are, right in my backyard.
What say I help you slip out of those clothes, and make you a little more comfortable. And, what's this? You brought a friend? Well, ok, sure - if that's how you like to play....but your friend seems a little shy...maybe they need to loosen up a little?
Yeeeeeah, that's more like it! Hm, I see that you two have some very distinct differences from each other...and yet you seem like you come from the same family.
You say your name is Mirai? That's a pretty name... What say I drop, er, help you in a nice hot sauna for a few minutes, and then we'll talk about dinner. Are you hungry? I sure am!
Ok, in all seriousness, these two luscious ears of corn were THE FIRST picked this year. These were the three year old seeds that I had little hope for, but then had nearly FIFTY of them sprout while wrapped in damp paper towel, as I tested to see if it was worth dedicating garden space to them. Great! Only then we had all that rain and cold weather after I planted them, and most rotted off in the ground. Thankfully about a dozen or so stalks survived, and it seems most should offer up one to two ears of corn. YUMMY!
Brett and I both agreed that these were SUPER tender! How could they not be - they were off the stalks MAYBE 15 minutes before getting tossed in the pot to steam. I suppose they could've been a LITTLE sweeter, but maybe they just wanted to stay on the stalk a little longer. Don't get me wrong - they were GOOD and they were sweet - just not SUPER sweet. Trust me - that's NOT a complaint!
I think we might be having corn again tonite! ;-)
