Tex Mex Corn on the Cob in white plate

I can’t stop eating everything summery.

Oh my word you guys, I just can’t. Strawberries are getting better, asparagus is on our table almost daily, radishes and kale are ready in my garden and the corn on the cob in the stores is starting to taste better….and better….and soon..oh, soon it’s going to be at its peak!

I swear we just get tired of being like cave bears, trapped in a gloomy, icy cave all winter long called “Edmonton”. When the snow finally melts, I just want to get out and eat BBQ food, all the time. Not just the junky stuff – though I love that as well- but just the corn, the strawberries, radishes, salad, heck I want everything seasonal that’s coming up.

And eating outside? Well, let’s just say our deck set was out before the last snowfall. Which actually says nothing, considering it has snowed in June here.

This corn recipe is the result of my corn craze and man, summer has barely started.I can’t help it, once you start fiddling with different ways of cooking and eating corn, you just can’t stop.

This however, is a serious new favorite. This one will stick around for a while before I start trying new flavors.

    Have you ever made Mexican corn??? My ex said its the best thing ever, I attempted it (was good but not as good as the real thing). Basically corn on the cob, with butter, mayo, cojita cheese and lime juice sprinkled on it. I guess it’s at all the roadside stands there
