I'm skipping the backlog and i'm not waiting for a cute story to come to me.
why? because corn season is going to be over and if i procrastinate, you will lose out on this one... Generally mexican corn is grilled, however, in this little apartment of mine, there is no grill, so i had to improvise...
I've had corn and guacamole for dinner 3 of the last 7 nights. if that doesnt say something about what i think of these two recipes, i dont know what possibly could.
