One of my favorite foods that my mom used to make is corn fritters. I am sure she made them to use up extra corn or to stretch a can of corn. We did not have them very much. But, they made an impression. When my parents came to meet my boys after they were born, this was my dinner of choice.
Well…we got some fresh sweet corn and had some ears left over. I pulled out a very old Betty Crocker cookbook and tried my hand at my own corn fritters. They were ok. Peanut wasn't home that night. So, the next night I doctored the recipe, used up the last of the fresh corn and made some fabulous fritters. I forgot to take a picture of those.
It is so funny how some foods have such special meaning. I felt like my mom was right at the table with us, not many miles away.
