Mommy Went Shopping!

Kitties!

*mmph * gobble * gobble * chomp*

Sweet Pea here, enjoying an incredible new delicacy!
SWEET CORN!

Born and raised the Midwest, Mommy is a sweet corn snob.  Living in Las Vegas it's been impossible to get good sweet corn since she and Daddy moved, 11 years ago.  In fact, she sort of gave up.  However, the new grocery store where she shops (Fresh-n-Easy) is almost like a farmer's market, packed with wonderful seasonal produce.  And sweet corn is in season in California...so Mommy took a chance a bought a couple ears.

Kitties, sweet corn is DEE-LISH-US. 
Salem:  What is this green crap?

Sweet Pea:  Crap!?!  This isn't crap!  Back off, you Gustatory Goon.

This stuff is fabulous.

My darling sweet corn, where have you been all my life?

Salem:  She's crazypants.
::rolls eyes::
Mommy boiled and ate the inside part of the sweet corn, which I thought was totally weird.  Although the butter and salt she put on it looked pretty nommy...and according to her it was Midwest Quality corn!  I hope she buys more soon.

Oh, and I had a Most Excellent yak right afterwards.
Bonus!


Happy Thursday!

XX  Sweet Pea (and Salem)  XX

  3. Nobody in OUR house eats the green parts of the corn, but they do love the yellow kernels. Reminds Mom that she looks forward to being home and getting some good local white corn (she thinks they call it Silver Queen).

  4. Sweet Pea - are you part goat?
    And excuse me! There is no better corn than NJ Silver Queen. Ah-hem

  5. Sweet Pea, we think that is Yakalicious too! Everyone knows vegables are good for you.

  6. Oh our person loves quality corn on the cob. Her folks came from a farm on Wisconsin and there is nothing better!

  7. Yaking? Boy, I'll bet that's the last time your mommy lets you have the green parts. My kitties have always liked chewing on the cob after we get done with munching the kernels off. Now, the sheep, that's a different story - they love the silk - when they hear The Shepherd cleaning an ear of corn, they all come running - it's nummers for them and they don't Yak it up! Ha ha. T.

  8. Yum - I wonder if they can be hunted in Finland.....

  9. We didn't know you could eat corn husks but we like to like the butter off our Mommy's corn! She's a Midwestener too!

  10. We have a Fresh and Easy not quite two miles from our house - my human is going to run over there tomorrow and get some sweet corn! I love corn on the cob with butter. Well, mostly I like the butter.

    Baby,

    Be careful with the corn leaves. I had to have 8 stitches in my pinky on my 8th birthday from a corn leaf. It was really sharp and you don't want to need stitches on your tongue! Ouchie!

    Val

    PS - leave it to an 8 year to figure out a way to get hurt on husking corn. Of course, I was playing in the corn field at the end of my street!

  12. You should try the corn yourself--probably best without the butter and salt, though. I've seen pictures of kitties nomming corn on the cob!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Tell your mommy we have great corn here too, but all year round! There's the famous highland 'milk' corn, where you can eat raw! Naturally sweet and absolutely juicy! Now see, you make me crave for some corn too .... MOMMY! Do you hear me?

  17. Our Mommy LOVES corn. Especially when topped with LOADS of butter and salt....mmmmmmm. Us? We just want the butter. Period.

    ReplyDelete
  18. We eat the canned stuff with butter but we don't eat the fresh stuff - cause we're weird, ok? MOL!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ha! Love the yak part. We were going to suggest that the rest of the kitty clan steer clear of you for sometime afterward, given corn's possible unfortunate side effects. LOL. But since you yakked it up, that's not necessary. :-P

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ya know, if you guys go all veggy on us, we will have to take "action"...

    ReplyDelete
  21. LOVE tha YAK part :)
    My mom is crazy about sweet corn too , she say´s she is going to buy some today and eat with butter and salt.

  25. Tucker LOVES (raw) sweet corn too. I can remember when I was a girl, the farm cats on my grandma's farm would come running when we peeled fresh corn. They loved it too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. huh - haven't had any of that here. Mom is ok with sweet corn but was moaning that the only sweet cherries she can find in the store are from California - hello... we live in Ohio - where are the Michigan cherries???? stupid stores.... glad you enjoyed the corms....

    ReplyDelete
  27. we just fell about watching you eat that stuff! You really do love it too! We wish we could sniff it to see the attraction! Lovely post. Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  28. Some kitties really like sweet corn. We saw a you tube of a kitty once who got a quarter cob every day and absolutely devoured it. Completely.
    Do you have to pick your teeth afterwards Sweet Pea?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm jealous. We haven't had fresh corn in EONS. I'd give it a try.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I hope it isn't wrong to simply say I LOVE this post..

    cause I do.

  31. Cats like corn???!! That said, EMily is jonesing for my cashew butter on a daily basis, so I guess they like to surprise us. Yo, cats. The yellow stuff is better than the green stuff!

    We get GREAT sweet corn around here, usually in August.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How great your mom can get good sweet corn in the new grocery store! Sweet Pea, we can see you are enjoying it a lot!! I prefer the inside part like your mom though. Haha :-)

  43. Mum will buy that stuff when the local corn starts to mature. We are not into that stuff, but mum loves the insides stuff too.

    ReplyDelete
  44. there is nothin' like summer sweet corn! I grew up in the Midwest too (and am still there!) and remember taking rides in the "country" with my parents and they would stop at the TONS of roadside farmer's stands and buy it fresh from the crop!!! Super good!! (but no yakking!! lol)

    ReplyDelete
  45. We've never tried corn like that! Did you know our mom buys that corn and here in the Midwest you can take all that outside stuff off and leave it at the grocery store. So we never even see the outside stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  46. TW is drooling just thinking of corn with butter. She leaves the salt off tho. She never realized a cat would like it altho we do have corn in our dry kibble.

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh guys!! THINK of the CARBS!!! ya gotta get off that stuff...soon!!! ...meows at Mom..."can I have some corn..."

    ReplyDelete
  48. Just had some white corn on the cob a couple days ago. Very sweet and yummy. Lucy, our dog, cleans the ears afterwards, but I think I'll just put the husks in the trash.

    ReplyDelete
  49. We are drooling in anticipation. Mmm and little butter, yum!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Some of us love to eat the inside part of the corn. We have never tried the outside.. a new idea for us!

    Happy weekend to you all (we are a day late reading blogs.. Mom is such a slacker).
