Crazy for Corn
The bounty of the season belongs to sweet, tender, delicious corn. And it is one versatile vegetable. Besides grilling it and smearing it with butter, you can use it for zip and zest in dishes like soups, salads, and tacos. Best of all, you can go wild with a whole corn-themed party. All over the country, families are spending hours playing hide-and-seek in corn mazes on farms, making corny arts-and-crafts projects -- like building "Mr. Corn Head" -- and then settling down to a pass-the-yummies lunch. Simply a-maize-ing!Perfect Lemonade
