This Easy Beer-Boiled Shrimp with Fresh Corn Recipe has a sweet summer taste!
I wish the weather would start cooperating here. One day it’s hot. The next day cold and rainy. It’s no wonder everyone is dropping like flies. But on those warm days, where I get a glimpse of summer coming, it makes me so happy.
Why? Because summer means more time spent outside. Whether out on the baseball fields or on the deck eating dinner, we spend a lot of time outdoors during the summer months. One of our favorite things to eat all summer long is corn on the cob. I was so shocked when I saw it in the grocery store just last week and, again, it had me excited for summer.
I need quick and easy meal ideas during the summer because we are always on the go! And it doesn’t get any easier than this Beer-Boiled Shrimp with Fresh Corn!
