a fine corn frenzy

Guys, I'm kind of freaking out. It's already the middle of August! I hate that feeling of summer slipping away. No matter what I always feel like I didn't have enough fun, didn't spend enough time outside and this year, didn't eat enough summer corn. It's a terrifying feeling, frankly. Especially for a lady who lives and dies for corn. I once infamously (or famously depending on how you look at it) ate THREE cobs of corn as an after school snack at the tender age of six. (lay off of me, I was starving). Anywho, summer ain't over yet, theres still time to take advantage of the corn bounty at your local greenmarket. I really love corn cut fresh from  the cob with whatever other vegetable you have lying around plus a little grated garlic, balsamic vinegar and good olive oil. It's true what they say about the simplest preparations being the best ones. Of course, there's still always room for recipes that require a little more effort. Here's some corn-y delights that I've been eyeing. Let's make the last few weeks of summer really count. What do you say?
