I’ve got a high school reunion coming up, a big one mind you, and I’d really like to lose 10 pounds, stat! Is that shallow of me. Okay, don’t answer.  At this point in my life, shouldn’t I be comfortable in my own skin?  After all, time and gravity has taken it’s toll on all of us. I’m not the only one who’s enjoyed her chocolate chip cookies and Snicker’s bars for the last 40 years, am I? My passion in life has been food and cooking, so what did I think was going to happen. Oh, and did I mention I’m not a big fan of exercise either. Shame on me!

My girlfriend Carol told me she lost 17 pounds doing Weight Watcher’s online. She calls me everyday and cheers me on, telling me, “you can do it”. So I joined, and each day I log on tracking each minute morsel I eat.  I bought all their frozen, packaged meals that only require me popping them into the microwave. Do you know how horrific this is for a person who lives to bake bread. I thought carbs were my friend, but I was so wrong.

I’ve spent a lot of time at my local farmer’s market buying tons of fruit and vegetables because they’re “zero” points on this diet. Geez, I even dislike the word diet. Anyway, today they had bins filled with the most amazing summer corn. It was screaming out to me, “grill me”! Sure, I know I should have gone for the green vegetables, but I broke down and bought the corn. And it was good.

If you don’t have a high school reunion coming up, then please, indulge yourself in sweet, summer corn on the grill. It’s easy, inexpensive, and oh-so-good.

Mama’s Tips:

Plan in advance. You can leave your butter out overnight, and by the next day it will be the perfect consistency.

You can make your butter mixture 2 days in advance. Just cover and refrigerate it. When you are ready to use it, just bring it to room temperature.

For a party appetizer, cut corn into 1 1/2″ pieces and just insert a toothpick.

  1. This looks so good! I love corn on the cob, especially when it’s right off a grill. I’ll definitely be making this ASAP… now, I just have to buy a grill! ;)

  2. Gorgeous looking food you have there. I love corn (but) have never tried it grilled and definitely have it up there on my list of things to try for our next BBQ. Good luck for your reunion :)

  3. Corn is a sick obsession of mine. I can’t wait for summer to come because of it. I’m sure because it is so good that you can be forgiven for this lapse! :) Good luck on your diet and thanks for sharing. Congrats on top 9!!

  4. Hi Mama S – thanks for the shout out!! This looks delicious – Forget the points – I’m indulging! Love the GREAT photos too – Truly a summer treat! xo

  5. That corn looks delicious! And bugger the high school reunion – I am quite sure they will have been shovelling down Snickers and choc chip cookies for the last 40 years as well. Who cares – life is short and its here to be lived!
