Ok. I know what you’re thinking. I only make food that looks like pie! Maybe I should make a fritatta soon too! This was just a happy accident – really! Changing the subject …
Nothing says summer like fresh fruit and vegetables. Corn is one of those lovely vegetables that even kids like to eat. I remember an uncle eating 8 ears of corn in one setting at a family gathering. I bet he was hurting later! Sometimes I think I could eat corn in everything from salads to soups, casseroles, puddings, main courses and salsa. You can eat it baked, boiled, grilled, popped or microwaved, it doesn’t matter. Corn is delicious especially when it’s crispy fresh and gives you a little snap when you take a bite. This corn was so sweet it could be eaten plain.
How can anyone resist a fresh ear of corn … on sale? We’ve had a few recipes featuring corn over the last two weeks. Get it while you can. This was a very nice recipe, made with fresh basil and fresh corn, it was very filling and satisfying, and so darn tasty!
