There is nothing like fresh corn on the cob. You have to have had it to understand what I mean. Getting fresh corn from the supermarket is not the same thing; it needs to be fresh out the field that morning and cooked that night. And it is superb. So I was very happy to get corn our first night in Canada!
With it was a BBQ, including marinated beef slab steaks, asparagus and portobello mushrooms. It was probably a bit hot to eat out on the deck, but in comparison to the US it was comfortable! We make an effort to eat out at home when we can, which isn’t very often! And, as we all know, food always tastes better out of doors, particularly when it’s come right off the grill. I appreciated our hosts letting us enjoy the weather!
Oh, and I shouldn’t forget that to start we had bruschetta: tomatoes, garlic, and basil fresh from the garden, marinated in balsamic and served on wee rounds of crispy bread. And smothered with grated Parmesan. With a glass of cold Sauvignon Blanc this was the way to start relaxing on the back deck.
