Don't Call Me Corny

A Sneak Peek Inside Wifey’s House

See what happens when I let Husband loose in the grocery store …


I end up with a crate full of corn in my refrigerator.

48 ears to be exact. That’s just two shy of 50. What am I going to do with 50 ears of corn? And, why did he buy all that?

“It was on sale for $12.”

Duh.

I love corn and Husband knows this so I truly appreciate his thoughtfulness … and the 48 ears of corn.

Anyone have any good recipes? Fritters? Cornbread? Cornmeal?

Winks & Smiles,

That is so funny! I think my husband would have done the same thing! Eat up!

Why on earth do husbands do these kinds of things? When my husband goes to the store, he brings back junk food which puts me over the edge! Share some with your neighbors!
This looks absolutely delicious - good luck! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Savory-Grilled-Corn/Detail.aspx
BTW, I'm in Roswell, howdy neighbor :).

This made me LOL!! Something D would do -- I love that he was being thoughtful -- Oh. and I'm the last who would ever have a recipe for anyone... so no ideas from me other than maybe have a BIG Memorial Day party!

I can't stand corn... Cornbread, corn on the cob, grits, and I hardly like popcorn. I hope yall will be able to eat all of that, haha!

My husband always says we need to do "major" grocery shopping which means: cereal, milk, and energy drinks... He does it at least twice a week. Why can't men shop?

Too funny! To me that says somebody wants to grill some corn! Tell him to fire it up and let us know when to come on over! ;)

Oh, sorry girl. Fried corn? A little butter, sea salt, white pepper, a tip of heavy cream, and you've got some GOOD eating.

I know: Have a HUGE bbq today! Corn for er'body!

Oh dear :-) I love corn but I am helpless in the kitchen. Good luck!

Well, it is kinda a good deal. HA! I wonder if fresh corn freezes well.

I think you can freeze ears of corn. Oh and have a corn party! That's the only thing on teh menu! LOL He meant well, so be nice and don't give your husband an ear full. *ducks*

Ok, so... we could have used some of that corn today! We ran out quick and had to cut them all in half so everyone could have at least a taste! LOL

My dad does that kind of stuff to my mom all the time!

That is too funny! But you have to admit that is a great deal. Hubby came home with a box full of green beans. I'm turning into a green bean as I type.

Gotta give him credit for trying :)

Try corn salad... corn, chopped avocado, black olives, cucumber, green peppers, salt and pepper tossed with a creamy italian type dressing. Let it sit overnight. I don't know if they sell creamy italian? I make my own and I don't measure...

Cut all the corn off the cobs and freeze it in ziplocks. Don't forget to scrape the corn milk.

The Broke Socialite May 26, 2009 at 5:05 PM  

What the?!!! LOL! Agree with Jewelry Rockstar. Grilled corn salads are awesome; just google it, girl. You are now the Forrest Gump of Corn...Hey, it could be worse.

I think your husband and mine should never be allowed to grocery shop together. No good would come of that activity. Seriously. My man came home with 15 boxes of macaroni and cheese this weekend after his trip because "they were on sale" too.

On the other hand, maybe you and I could get together and feed all of our bloggy buddies. You bring the corn and I'll bring the mac & cheese. We could feed an army. :)

48 ears of corn for $12? What a bargain!

joanofalltrades May 26, 2009 at 10:50 PM  

HILARIOUS! Don't ya love it when the hubs tries to do something you like, but takes it to a level that you wouldn't have ever imagined? Brocoli cornbread and salmon cornbread are da bomb! Too bad I don't have the recipe......sorry :(

Oh that is too funny. Too too funny.

You all are fabulous! Great suggestions. I appreciate the love. Smiles!
