TODAY IS CORN ON THE COB DAY
In the height of summer, under a cornflower blue sky filled with cotton-ball clouds, and the smell of grilled meat fills the air. Children are laughing and playing in the creek, and the adults are setting up the picnic tables with red solo cups and paper plates. In the middle of the table sits a large Tupperware bowl covered with a layer of aluminum foil, steam gently escaping from around the edges, rich with the smell of corn on the cob. Corn on the Cob Day celebrates events like these, and the gathering of family around the sweetest healthy treat you’ll ever have!
