Corny Picks

So I'm not sure I should be allowed to create titles for my posts...they're getting progressively worse. Anyway, summer is in full swing here and B and I enjoyed our first corn on the cob the other night. Buttery, salty, yummy, no health value, corn on the cob. I'm strict about my corn on the cob eating habits, only during the summer, no exceptions. So, since I've been thinking about corn (yes, there are better things to think about but I make no apologies) I decided to round up a couple of products in celebration of the starchy vegetable, non- vegetable.
This could be fun in the kitchen...
Corn Harvest 10x10 linoleum block print $25
I could wear these with my pea pod necklace and have a veggie-themed accessories day. Ha!
Corn Cob Earrings $12
I'd like to add these to my "collection" of note cards.
Corn Note Cards $16
Bring these cupcakes to your next picnic or barbecue to make an impression. What impression that is, I couldn't tell you.
Corn-on-the Cob Cupcake
Oh, and while we're at it, don't forget your peas and carrots.
Vanilla Cupcakes
What's your go-to summer vegetable?

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

YUM!!! Corn on the cob is so good right now, I've had it every evening for 3 days now. It's the one fresh veggie that taste as good as it did when I was a kid. I'm wondering what is under the corn on the cupcakes? Cute idea!

Hope you're having a great week! It's hot here!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I love corn on the cob with absolutely no health value! Sooo good! The cupcakes are adorable!

I love avocados. Salt, pepper and I go to TOWN.

The titles of your posts are amazing-when I get on the blogs I'm always drawn over here first! :)

Ginger said...

As someone who is often pretty corny, I like your post titles;)

My go-to vegetable is probably chickpeas; straight out of the can and into the salad, no oven required!

Haven and Home said...

This is too funny, I am laughing out loud

Callie Grayson said...

during the summer i eat a lot of the following fruits and veggies:
tomatoes
avocados
green beans

I adore the necklace! Hmmm... summer vegetable, well I love corn on the cob as well so I'm not sure.

Sunshine said...

I love those earrings. And I have the cookbook that those cupcakes came from! Aren't those just the funniest things you've ever seen!

Kristen Sara said...

Your titles are fun!! This was a great post. Those earrings are fun- I found a great vegetable wrap skirt at a thrift store once and despite many comments, I happily wore it often! My favorite veggie right now is cauliflower. With some fresh spinach dip, it's delicious!

Southern Aspirations said...

Wow too many good things to choose from. For summer veggies, grilled corn (my new thing) is fabulous as well as squash and zucchini. Yummy.

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

That pea and carrot cupcake is crazy! My favorite summer veg are fresh peas, zucchini, tomatoes, . . . and corn, of course. (And your titles are cute.)

Gabby said...

Corn is the best! I can't wait for the fair for that very reason.

I'm all about tomatoes, avocados, and zucchini.

ana b. said...

O my goodness. Do you know that two small pieces of fresh corn in Wellington, NZ costs $NZ4.99! Arrrgh. And I love corn. Drat it.

i love veggies pictures. i have a blown up picture of some close up black eyed peas in my kitchen. turned out really well and was free, because dad took the pic and gave it to me. gotta love dads:)

Magchunk said...

This was the funniest idea for a round-up! I've been feeling the same way about post titles lately. My instinctive titles are SO corny (heh heh). So I say flaunt that wit, girl! Everyone will get a good chuckle.

drollgirl said...

Elizabeth said...

It's not exactly a summer vegetable... more like a winter one... but I'm craving me some sweet potatoes!!!!!

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

Loved your titles. I always try to do the same and sometimes I take a step back on think oh no I hope this isn't too corny.

Corn has to be my favorite summer veggie. It just means bbq's and summer to me!

Corn on the cob - as a meal. No butter. No salt. Eaten outdoors preferably. Hide the cobs. (Evidence of how many you've eaten.)
