I’m so pleased to introduce a guest blogger this week. Welcome, Angie Ahrens, whom I met on Twitter, and will today be contributing to my regular Sunday blog feature Nosh with Nina.
Angie is a fellow nosher from way back, and writes her own blog, City Nom Noms. I encourage you to follow her wonderfully informative blog to learn all about her food-related adventures across central Indiana:
Corn. Not being from Indiana, I didn’t realize the connection people could have to a vegetable. I had never heard the expression ‘knee high by 4th of July’ or that popcorn was a staple food item (according to this – thoughts?) I also hadn’t experienced the butter dripping from my chin at the State Fair (in Wisconsin, we are all about crème puffs).
I know all these things now. Not only do I know, but I enjoy it to the fullest degree.
I definitely have had my fair share of corn prior to becoming an Indiana resident. But I have completely embraced buying and supporting the local farmers on Saturdays at the Carmel Farmers Market.
This past weekend I walked away with some corn. I knew the grill would be the perfect place for a simple side dish for the hubs and I. After a quick look in the fridge, I decided buttered corn wouldn’t be enough for this girl.
Enjoy the jazzed up version – simple yet delicious.
