This is Heaven!

While driving through White Center today, I saw something new and intriguing: a roasted corn stand on the corner of 15th Ave SW and SW 98th St.  I had to stop and check it out. Now I'm sure that the four or five of you who read my blog are probably thinking that I have some sort of obsession with food and snacking.  That would be correct.  I do.  And I absolutely L-O-V-E love roasted corn.

After circling the block several times to make sure they were open, I parked the car, walked up to the open air stand and surreptitiously snapped a photo of the A-board.  Then it was my turn; being the economically prudent person that I am, I was so hoping this ear of corn was not going to set me back $5.00.  As it turns out, they are only $2.50 - a pretty good price, I think, especially since you could eat two for $5.

Anyway,  the friendly man behind the counter, surrounded by stacks of huge boxes of corn, asked me what I would like on it - Mayo? Cotijo Cheese? Lime? I just asked for butter, because what I really wanted was to dredge my corn in Chile & Lime powder.    My mouth was on fire but it was soooo unbelievably delicious.   As Budweiser would say, "Mr. roasted corn stand guy, we salute you!":)



Thanks for stopping by my blog!
