Can you eat too much corn on the cob?

We're enjoying a new summer tradition here...well, a repeat of our last summers new tradition. Multiple times each week (like every other day)Ron determines we should have some fresh corn for dinner.
So, we stop at this farm that is on the way home from the Mission Office.
$4.75 a dozen, or $2.50 for a half dozen.
Such a small price to pay for a simple pleasure that is good for us.
We've decided that freshly picked corn
makes even the simplest dinner wonderful!

We didn't plant any corn this year. Too many worries about water and not enough time to keep it weeded!! We have some great farmers markets a few times a week though...that takes care of that!

I have always loved corn on the cob. When I was a kid my Dad always had a big corn crop. He would get up early in the morning and pick a bunch of corn. We kids would husk (shuck) the corn and we'd have corn for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It always made any meal better---in my opinion.
