Corn Cob

IMG_7598Amaya loves corn. On the cob. She loves to pretend she is like Mickey Mouse, who she saw eating corn on the cob like a typewriter in a cartoon. She doesn’t care one bit about strings in her teeth.

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.

Furikake? Never heard of it but that's the joy of blogs you always learn something new:-) Corn on the cob is a hit with just about everyone in my family

If you like seaweed at all, you'll like furikake. It's crunchy and sweet and salty all at once!
I also recommend it on popcorn.

after reading this post that was exactly what I did, make popcorn and top it with furikake.
