    If I was the type of person who took photos of their shit, I'd be posting them right now. It sounded like a machine gun coming back out.

    My wife is out of town and it made me feel good to eat all vegetables for dinner. Well, that and about 2/3 a stick of butter and half a shaker of salt.

    It was not identified. I don't know where we get ours from. It's really too damn hot to grow it here in Texas. Iowa, Illinois and Indiana grow the best sweet corn in the world. I bet the stuff I get is 10 days off the stalk by the time it reaches my grocery store here. I used to go to my back yard, pick it, peel it, and dunk it in hot water. That's fresh.

    Sometimes it will take two days for the corn to start exiting my bowels and I get nervous after day 1.

    I knew someone would say that. I should have made a note on my original post. It's a fucking vegetable, just like a tomato is a vegetable.

    I think I spelled it wrong. Illiana. Developed by the University of Illinois. It's been a long time, they have probably developed something even better by now.

    Fresh picked is the best. None of that in Texas.

    Do you like putting corn on the BBQ and then slathering it with butter and fresh garlic that has been roasted? I do. :buffet:

    I've tried several different methods of cooking corn on the grill. I still think I get the best corn by bringing a pot of water to boil, drop the corn in, get it back to boil for one minute, put stove on low, cover the pot and let it simmer for 10 minutes. It's always tender that way and the grilled corn can be inconsistent.

    Corny dogs are at the fair. Never quite figured out why they are corn dogs everywhere else but the fair.
