A very CORNY post…get it? :)

You guys….spring is coming. How do I know?


The fresh corn showed up in the import stores this week.

I know. Life is good.

Fresh sweet corn only shows up here in Stavanger for a few months every spring/summer. The rest of the year we are left with either canned corn, or what I call “shrink-wrapped corn”, which is corn on the cob that is semi pre-cooked and wrapped in thick plastic. Canned corn is alright, but “shrink-wrapped corn” is the WORST tasting corn I have ever had in my life. Perhaps saying that makes me a corn snob… But even Skittles won’t touch it. And when the bird that loves corn on the cob like this dog loves walks won’t even take a nibble…I feel justified :)

This is actually the earliest in the year I’ve seen fresh corn show up since we moved here. When I saw it at IMS (the import store by our house) I actually did a little dance right there in the produce section! Chris cooked us up some restaurant-style steaks that night for dinner with our corn on the side.



The corn wasn’t to die for (it’s probably a bit too early in the season for the really good stuff), but nevertheless, it means summer is on it’s way! So excited!

    Good man Chris! Carrying on that manly Hill tradition of heating the roast beast. I am very hungry right now.
