Anyone for Dental Floss

I went to the veggie stand and picked up a bushel of fresh Silver King corn to work up.  I haven't worked a bushel of corn in a very, very long time.  Also got more tomatoes and purple hull peas and okra.  You have to work the corn pretty quick to keep the sugar so last night was it.  I even baked a chicken for dinner with the fresh tomatoes and of course creamed corn.  YUMMY.  As I was shucking the corn and getting it ready I dropped an ear and Clayton was there in a flash to taste it.  I had forgotten how much our dogs (when I was young) loved fresh corn, actually a lot of stuff out of the garden.  He loved it.  We used to have a dog that would eat the fresh asparagus right down to the ground.  I was little miss Betty Crocker yesterday, cooking and finishing yet another painting.  (Check out the art blog.)  Notice I had to have a little wine to help with the chore.  Now my freezer is full of corn for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Everything looks delicious. You've inspired me to pick up some corn and prep/freeze it for later!
