My Recipe For Creamed Corn

  • Cut the kernals off 4-5 ears of fresh corn.
  • Saute in a skillet with no less than 1/2 stick of butter.
  • Add salt and pepper.
  • Stir often.
  • Turn down heat and add a little milk. Allow to simmer.
  • Serve corn and exclaim "Oh my God, this is right up there with my mother's!" (Quick aside - I've never once heard her compliment her own cooking. It may be a Southern thing that I didn't inherit.)
  • Wrap up uneaten corn.
  • All next day say little prayers that your husband didn't eat the corn before you could get home.
  • Heave a sigh of relief when you see that he didn't.
  • Microwave for two minutes.
  • Eat entire bowl in less than 3 minutes, crying out to the cats "this is some of my best work ever!"
  • Lie on couch moaning in pain and holding stomach for the rest of the evening.

Girl, your mom cooked this for me years ago, and just the thought of it still makes my mouth water. And you're right, I have NEVER heard her compliment her own cooking. She's too humble for her own good. If I cooked half as good as her, I'd be all 'Damn, look me. I rock."

I love you guys too.

I think you really have to use fresh corn. I prefer white, but I've been told there's no difference. It may be so good because it's one of those things you can only have once a year.
