"Mockingbirds don't do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corn cribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." -Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

The refrigerator light goes on...

It seems hard to believe that such simple ingredients can be so flavorful. Don't overcook the corn; the crunch adds great texture. I like to use extra black pepper when I make this dish because it adds a little zing. Remember: corn is a whole grain!
