Sauteed sweet corn kernels is a quick and easy snack.

My theme this week is redoing old posts. There are many posts from my early days of blogging that are not SEO friendly with bad images. Fried or sauteed sweet corn kernels is one of them.

When I redo old posts, I update the post with new images or re-edited old images. I also edit the post to make it SEO friendly. The plan was to do the same even today. However, when I realized both the title and link of the post are not SEO friendly, I changed my mind. I figured it is better to do a new post rather than having broken links by editing the link URL.
