Jimmy crack corn

We had fresh corn on the cob from Wishwell Farms last evening. Delicious doesn't even begin to convey the yumminess of sinking your teeth into those yellow and white nuggets dripping with butter. Well, it was Smart Balance but it just doesn't create the picture I wanted. The two of us polished off six ears along with a Niman Ranch ham steak that I got from Trader Joe's. It's the only ham that David likes. I realize now that I should have photographed the wonderful bounty, but I was in to big a hurry to eat it!

However, I did take a picture of the chickens getting the leftovers. They like nothing better than to finish off those ears of corn. It's their favorite treat and so much fun to watch.

Oh yes, leftovers from corn on the cob are a favorite chickie treat! It's so entertaining to watch them pick out every last bit. I'm amazed at just how far down they go. Jim likes to use the picked-out cobs as handles for his metal files in the workshop. Not a bad way to recycle!

I would like to give them some whole ears, but can't stop myself and the family from eating all of them! Hey, you could always make some corncob pipes for you and Jim to puff on while you sit out by the pond! And even fill them with dry cornsilks! LOL
