Sweet Ambrosia Corn On The Cob
Last weekend we went for a drive in search of sweet Ambrosia corn. We took along a picnic lunch and knew we would end up in Idaho to buy lottery tickets 🙂 Izzy( our dog) loves a car ride and its the perfect way for all three of us to spend some time together away from the house. I took a few snapshots ( no fancy photos today my sweet bloggy friends).
We stopped at our favorite local farmers fruit and veggie stand in search of sweet ambrosia corn. It is also referred to as candy corn, see the two different colors. We don’t grow corn in our garden ( it takes up to much space) so we always look to our local farmers to provide us with enough to enjoy .
The farm truck had just arrived and we watched as they piled it on to the stands ready for us to pick through.
Wonderful piles of sweet tender corn!
I am happy to report we have eaten quite a bit of it already and we put the rest in the freezer. We will make a few more trips to the farm to get enough to enjoy throughout the fall and winter months.
They had plenty of green bell peppers and honey dew melons too.
We kept driving towards a little park we know in Idaho. It’s a nice place for a picnic. As we were driving along we saw this horrible site. The mountains were on fire, and they still are as I write this. You may have seen on the news about the wildfires here in Utah. Several people have lost their homes in Park City and other areas. It is so sad. You can’t tell from these photos but we could actually see the flames as they were reaching into the sky.
Once we arrived at the park we were all hungry. Hubby surprised me with a peach from the farmer’s fruit stand to add to our little picnic.
I call him “Evel Cow-nievel”, no offense to Evel Kanievel. Uumm yes, this guy is complete with some cow pies, did you notice them?
My two sweet boys rocking out!
When was the last time you went to your local farm or farmers market?
Have a great weekend everyone. Make happy memories.
