The Love of a Granny Sadie!

One evening, I had this crazy ambition to attempt to make fresh fried corn, which, in my opinion, is pure bliss when it comes to the subject of foods. Corn is probably my favorite within the vegetable family. I can eat it just about any way you can imagine to prepare it. So, back to me deciding to make some. While I was in the process of cleaning and shucking the corn, my thoughts kept drifting towards Granny Sadie. Granny Sadie makes the very best fried corn on the face of the plant, that is one thing that I am absolutely sure of. Granny Sadie is one of the sweetest people I know. I am fortunate to have married her Grandson. She has made me feel like part of the family since I first walked though her door, and I am pretty sure that first time she tried to feed me something and it very well may have been her corn. Did I mention that she makes the very best fried corn? Her recipe is very simple, but I am yet to recreate the taste she achieves when cooking it. I think it's some sort of Granny magic secret she uses! What I have learned while attempting to cook her corn is just how pain-staking the process to prepare corn is. My hand was cramping after only cleaning three ears of the corn and I was only preparing six. Granny probably makes more along the lines of fifty or even a hundred at a time. Then it hit me how much love this woman pours into cooking her family a real home cooked meal. It also hit me that I should tell her a lot more often how much I appreciate all the little things (like making fried corn) she does for me. I can't really put into words how much this lady actually means to me. She is such a treasure in this family! My heart is eternally grateful for the love she has shown to me. She has always treated me like I am one of her own grandchildren! She is truly a special kind of wonderful!!! I love you Granny Sadie! Oh, and you make the best fried corn in all the universe!!!!

And lets not forget her YUMMY chocolate gravy and homemade biscuits! I can remember many mornings after spending the night at her house with Becky or Valerie and waking up to the wonderful smell of breakfast. She is a great lady and a wonderful cook.
