One of the biggest things I missed about home when I lived in Tokyo (and now living in Denver) were evenings spent on my parents’ deck, looking out at the soft summer light kissing each blade of green grass and casting shadows across the fields as the sun set. That will always be one of the most peaceful visions I can conjure in my mind. Of course, we never just sit on the deck. There is usually some kind of food or drink present on the table, along with usually pleasant conversation being tossed back and forth. This time of year, the meal is typically rounded out with a plate of corn on the cob. In Minnesota, if you aren’t eating corn on the cob this time of year, you must be at least a little nuts. Sweet, crisp, and juicy kernels drenched in butter is the perfect way to close out the summer season.
If you’re a corn on the cob lover, head over to Cup of Jo today to see my post for corn on the cob with herb butter. Trust me when I say that this is, in fact, the best corn on the cob you’ll ever have.
As for regularly scheduled blog posts, I’ll be getting back into that with a brand new post updating you on all I’ve been up to this summer. Check back here on Friday and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
