Plus, there are these things going for corn:
1) it has butter on it
2) it’s sweet
Basically, it’s her perfect food. But I am a foodie genius, and I made it even better: FURIKAKE! (with the butter) If you’re not familiar with furikake, it’s a Japanese “all purpose” seasoning to go on rice, with a little seaweed, salt, sesame seeds, and sometimes other variations. This one we had has some fish flakes in it. I promise you, kids (and plenty of adults) really like this stuff. In a Japanese grocery store it’s easy enough to find a whole aisle dedicated to furikake. Amaya loves Hello Kitty brand while I prefer the more straight adult stuff, with black sesame and roasted seaweed. Try a few out. There’s even Natto furikake. For the corn, I just spread on butter while it was hot, then sprinkled on the furikake. So easy and so good.
Now she wants to marry corn. I swear, when I was making her wait while I took the pictures, I did not prompt her to pose at all.
