So I wrote yesterday about how we decided to cream corn on the first Saturday of summer vacation, the day that was also Brad & Peter’s birthday. We originally thought we would just make a small batch. But I think our eyes were bigger than our biceps. Here’s a picture of the back of dad’s pick-up filled with corn:

After the corn gets to the stage pictured above, we carry it inside where my mom would cook it, put it in containers, then eventually freeze it. It is a tremendous amount of work, but we just kept telling the boys how wonderful it tasted and how it was all so worth it.
Unfortunately, they were not nearly as impressed with it as we were. Especially since their favorite way to eat corn is this way:
