i know people have a difference of opinion on the use of salt or sugar on watermelon (salt), grapefruit (salt) and even tomato (salt – what can i say i’m a creature of habit.) but i had no idea that people differed in their treatment of corn.
i’m of the opinion that salt should be a no brainer when it comes to corn – my real preference is black pepper, but for the purposes of this post (i don’t know what those purposes might be, but whatever) i’m sticking with the salt or sugar options. but all kinds of things are done to corn here. after it’s out of the can – or off the cob – they add butter (yum), sugar (huh?), sprinkles (?!?!), and then they might even serve it in and/or over ice cream. really.
they’ve opened a new bud’s ice cream near us so today i treated c14 and a11 to a scoop. and as much as i tried to convince them they would not order a scoop of corn or try the corn ice cream sundae. (corn is on the tropical flavors menu. i had no idea corn was a tropical thing.) i’m certain s9 would have given it a go. he loves all things corn – especially when they make it sweet. but he’s been in bangkok with michael today.
they took the train to bangkok last night. just having a guys day together. and the only details of the trip i’ve heard so far are that they had a good time and they got whistled at and a stern talking to from a security guard at some fountain michael encouraged s9 to play in. i’m hoping it wasn’t this fountain –
fountain at chatuchak park
and i’m guessing it was this one –
fountain at siam paragon mall
they’re on the train back right now probably trying to perfect the “approved to tell mom” version of their day.
