A boy and his passion for corn on the cob....

For some reason, I had always shied away from giving the little ones corn on the cob. Maybe I thought they'd choke or just make a huge mess....I dunno. But the other night I made some yummy chicken wings....check them out....

In the famous words of Rachael Ray (who I find annoyingly annoying, btw), these wings were yum-o....delish....totally worth licking every last drop of your fingers kinda good. I also made some corn on the cob and figured it was going to be a messy meal as it was so might as well toss the cobs over to the kids and let them have some fun. Geez, I sound like I'm talking about a pack of dogs or something.

Anyway, so we discovered that Garrett is extremely passionate about corn on the cob, as evidenced by the following pictures....

And after he finished HIS corn on the cob, he continued eating everyone else's corn on the cob.

He looked so adorable munching on all those corn cobs but his diaper the next day....yeah, not so much. Let's just say, we'll be limiting his intake of corn the next time around.

lol too funny!

My young'uns are the same way about C-O-T-C. I don't feed it to them often!

Morgan said...

Mmmmm! I'm looking forward to corn coming back in season!

I like to cut off the corn from the cob, slicing it so that they stay connected together like chips.

That is cute! My son also loves corn on the cob and off of the cob. Have a wonderful weekend!

No good deed goes unpunished... or should I say good corn?!

I love corn on the cob! My mother can eat it so that when she's done, the cob looks like a bees nest - you know, not one single speck of corn left and just the honeycomb pattern is visible? It's actually kind of weird.

Corn poop is totally gross.

Nancy said...

So cute! I'll have to make some for my boys and see if they like it. :)

TOO CUTE!! my 2 year old niece is the same way with corn on the cob, and RIBS!! she started eating them both @ 18 months and thinks that you should eat ribs and corn on the cob every night! It is too funny to watch a 2 yr old eat ribs and corn on the cob!!

Jenn said...

Hmm, I wonder if my Wiggle Man would love COTC, too. I'll have to try the next time we have it. Thanks for the heads up about the diaper situation--good to know! ;)

OMG that is so cute, I can't stand it! My Mom's been trying to get me to make corn for Joe, but I protested - that's COOKING after all. I may give it a try!

By the way, I checked out your blog on my husband's computer (IE8) and the first page loaded fine. But when I clicked on the link to this post it took forever to load (it could just be his computer, though - it's kind of messed up). But then a message popped up saying something along the lines of "If you want to see the items on this page that are not secure, click yes".

Ya just try to make your blog look good and IE throws a snit fit! Sheesh.

Happy Friday!

My dad is a corn on the cob cutter. He always used to cut the kernels off. I could really go for some sweet corn right now!

Karen said...

Too cute! And those chicken wings look really yumm-o! :-)

And, like Kristina's dad, I'm a cob cutter, too. I hate getting corn all over my face.

Nikki B. said...

my boys love them some corn...and i think they only love it cuz they like to talk about the corn in their poop the next day!!

bonnieearly said...

My kids are obsessed with COTC too. Funny... The diapers are not funny though.

newlyweds said...

I just gave my boys corn on the cob also!! They loved it. He is so cute, but I here you on the diaper, lol!

Nickel Pickle said...

We had corn on the cob last night too! Chloe would not put it down, she walked around sucking on that cob for at least an hour!

Jen said...

Corn on the cob is awesome! I can't wait to have it again.

Sharlene said...

I never even thought to give my kids COTC. Am I mentally slow? Don't answer that! I am gonna have to try it. I bet they will love it!

Mrsbear said...

Those wings look fabulous. I too find Rachel Ray extremely grating, especially the yummo delish EVOO catch phrases, but I have been known to use her recipes (although I can't watch her show, ugh!) Corn on the cob is great though and the kids dig it every time, although the morning after diapers, gurg - totally turns you off of corn for a while.

The Mother said...

You would deny your son such massive, ecstatic enjoyment just because of some poop?

Mean mommy.

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

Hahaha -- he wanted everyone's corn! My son loves to chow down on it, too, and is disappointed if I serve corn *not* on the cob.

Maricris Zen Mama said...

Perfect Combo! They do look ssooooo yummy! I love Chicken wings!! Now it's your fault that I'm going to have to have chicken wings for dinner tonight! :)

Jen said...

Too cute... I am so glad my kids are out of diapers. Corn diapers were not fun.

If we get any good corn from our garden this year you will have to come up for a BBQ and swim session.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Yum! Now I want corn on the cob. My oldest loves it as well. It is just so...summery!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Too cute. Corn (only on the cob) is the only veggie Bo will eat. And those wings do look yum-o.

Jenny said...

That is hilarious!

Stacy said...

Hey we had chicken wings tonight too, but sadly no corn on the cob! Cute pics!

Zeemaid said...

I can't believe you've never given them corn on the cob!?!? My kids love it and there is no better way to get few peaceful moments at dinner time than to give them a good old corn on the cob to chew. They don't even NEEd the butter.

Hey you gonna share that chicken wing recipe.. it does look delish. :)

Jenny said...

I forgot to mention that I have an award for you on my blog:

Jennifer said...

LOL! To watch cuteness, to change corn poop, to watch cuteness, to change corn poop?! Ugh, what a dilemma! ;-)

Hope you don't have any residual corn diapers to change over the weekend! :-)

HarryJack's Mom said...

Too cute, and I completely understand the pack-of-dogs decisions ;-) Can I get that recipe, btw? Those wings look delish! Happy Memorial Day!

Amy said...

I left you something on my blog.

Deb said...

Totally cute. If that's not the picture of summer, than I don't know what is. Nothing tastes better than fresh corn on the cob--we are all fans at our house.

Hope you have a good Memorial Day!

Dee said...

Tell Garret he is my man!! I love corn on the cob too!! It's the best of the best!

Chili's makes the best Corn on the Cob...I don't know how they do it, but it is sooooo Good!!!!

Give him a big hug for me! Go Garrett! It cracked me up that not only did he eat his COTC but he also ate everyone else's. LOL Go Garrett!!

Nikki @ Euphoria Luv said...

My son is also a fan of the corn. But he prefers his all massed up. I think it's great they like something healthy!
