Susan, we had fresh corn from the farmers market instead of cauliflower, and it was grand tasting, first fresh cob I've had this summer. Hope you had corn and enjoyed it, for pete's sakes, Lordy have mercy. ;)

I remember as a kid, we grew corn, and it was wonderful and a sure taste of summer, that, and watermelon, made us smile.

But I never enjoyed the watermelon like everyone else did.
