oh so corny!

it was another lazy and spontaneous sunday.
after looking for spiderwebs,
taking photos of bugs and butterflies,
going to my lola (grandmother - mom's aunt) to get some rain lilies,
playing with the nephews with those leaves and weeds that you can stick on shirts,
and just killing time resting on the hammock,
we were hungry.
good thing, my kuya told us that the corn he had planted is ready for harvest.
we ran straight to the cornfield!
he planted the corn for our family's consumption.
corn overload!
 my nephews playing in the cornfield while harvesting corn.
these are perfect for picking.
we  harvested two baskets of corn.
what to do with them???
since we had inihaw (grilled pork) for lunch and had lots of wood,
we grilled the corn!
since the corn was so fresh, it tasted sweet and yummy.
no need for butter or salt.
our stomachs we're full after eating these.
we'll definitely be harvesting corn again next week for merienda :)

There is nothing sweeter than fresh picked corn. I grow it on my allotment here in England - though we only get a month's harvest in September. But it freezes well and still tastes as delicious through the winter.
