- get's stuck in your teeth
- gets stuck in your teeth even when it's in popcorn form
- comes out the 'other end' looking just like corn (no matter how much chewing you do)
- has no flavour
- is gross
- did I mention how it get's stuck in your teeth?
The specials at the supermarket got the better of me. It was only $2.99 per kg bag of two kinds of frozen mixed veges! Bargain, right? One had pineapple in it (yes, I'm also not a fan, and should it really be allowed in the 'vege' bag?), and the other had corn in it. So, since I don't go there with pineapple and I hadn't had corn in ages, I thought, 'It can't be that bad."
Tonight I was reminded again 'why' corn is so average.
I grew up with my Mum making toasted sandwiches and often forgetting that all of us kids didn't like sweetcorn and cheese on our toasties. Ew! Does anyone agree with me? Creamed corn, nasty.
I love love loved the freshly boiled corn on the cob though, with melted butter and sprinkled salt. Mmm, maybe it's just softer when it's fresh like that?
If you like corn, then all the more for you. If you don't like corn, all the more for the folks who do, right?
On a completely different note , I've been making some cute brooches.
Smiley faces all around. They're so soft and puffy and cute.
Do you have a vegetable that you really just don't like?
