Up here we have Peaches & Cream corn. It is a mix of golden & white kernels & very sweet & tender........ ......What kind of corn do you deem worthy of praise Jeff? I know 'tastes' are a very personal/regional thing.
Growing up, and until perhaps maybe a dozen years or so, we use to have 'Sliver Queen' corn......tiny, almost white kernels, and very sweet.

Then another 'local' variation appeared round me.....called 'Even Sweeter'......same attributes, but indeed sweeter than Silver Queen.
But then, this all seemed to have dried up......high breed yellow/white....tough....TASTELESS and what we use to call 'Horse corn' began flooding our markets......one by one local stands/farms quit offering it, in favor of THAT stuff. Almost looks like something 'tropical' with it's green leaves as it grows.
Looking and hoping this is the year the GOOD STUFF returns round here, and still a couple weeks out yet. One can only hope.
Wait. Did you go to work today? Or did I sleep through you coming back home?All this talk about corn's got me thinking..... ......hmmmmmm, what goes with corn.....POP CORN.....OOOoohhhhhhh, MOVIES! I got some, pop corn that is, and a new can of salt, and the butter....well of course is always well stocked round here. So me be thinking a movie night lies ahead.
Been out in the gun room off n on most of the day......not air conditioned, so these past couple weeks been tough getting motivated to go out there.....today, barely touching 80 under cloudy skies was pleasant out there.
To loosely paraphrase a famous movie quote, '....I love the smell of gun oil.....smells like.....MONEY.'.
Oooooops.....get's I didn't 'technically' say I went to work, and then came home.....BUT I MEANT TOO!HiYa Vinnie and Rick!
BUSY vs RELAXING......OK, that balances things out nicely.
So why exactly am I posting, and smacking the 'like icon' this time of the day? BECAUSE.......'slow as runny boogers, ("SORRY Cath, no reference."), at work, and don't quite feel up to my normal Tigger bouncy self today, so good to to be doing this instead.....though I'm sure other stuff will pop up.
