Favorite Things Thursday

Another Favorite Things Thursday Addition.

You like so far? Or should I stick to just recipes?

Alllllll right can you guess the photo?

Did you guess?

If you guessed the best invention ever, well then you guessed right!

They are Corn Cob Nobs from Pampered Chef.  I have had them forever and ever.

Ok, you know when you boil corn and you have to take the hot corn cobs and play hot potato with them to get these yellow beauties in them???
What a P.I.A. those are!

The good thing about the little green knobs is that you screw them in BEFORE you boil the corn.


Then you toss them in the water.

Boil the corn. And then when you drain the corn, you can immediately handle the corn by the green corn cob holders. They are instantly cool to touch!

Pretty cool, huh. Oh and they are only $4 for 8 of them!!!

Love love love it!

    I love a glimpse at your favorite things. I change my girl holiday gift exchange to a my favorite things party. It was a huge hit. So fun to see the little things that people love especially if they are genius like these.

    So my only question is since they are plastic they aren’t too hard to screw into the uncooked corn? I assume not.
