How do you spend your Saturday nights? Last Saturday night I had a date with 60 plus ears of corn and some freezer bags.
The evening started with The Husband and Kidlet Three packing up hockey gear and taking off for a two-hour hockey tryout. The car was barely out of the driveway and I had the laptop propped up on the table with a Netflix movie starting. Five bags of fresh-picked corn were on the table waiting to be husked. With that movie going I started husking ear after ear after ear after ear...
It was rather disturbing when the movie came to end and I still wasn't done ripping the husks off the cobs.
Finally I was done and could carry the ears over to the stove.
When the ears were chilly, I set them on a towel and started cutting the corn off. I used an electric knife.
The date night came to a close when I transferred many bags of fresh corn into the freezer.
