Today, grilled corn made it back to the farmers’ market! Hallelujah, summer has finally arrived! I forgot to take a photo because I ate it too fast. Really, I could say I nommed it too fast, that’s how fast I ate it. Or shoompfed it.

Flacos, the vegan Mexican place, usually comes to the Berkeley Saturday Farmers’ Market, and they have grilled corn, Mexican style, when corn’s in season. Even though we’d eaten lunch already, we got two anyway. I wimped out and got just lime and salt on mine; Yut got the full chile powder (I think cayenne), salt, and lime treatment. Spicy! So we had to get a Thai Iced Tea because the burn starts slowly but then your lips and tongue and throat start going numb. Sooo full, but sooo good.

I’m afraid it’s going to be a short season. I know that there’s a crazy heat wave in much of the rest of the country, but here in the Bay Area, we’ve had an unseasonably cool summer (70°F high today) but with a lot of variability. I blame climate change. Anyway, it’s already late July and this was the first weekend I saw the corn!

Yes, corn does merit its own post, why do you ask? :)
