I am a firm believer in a well-stocked pantry.  I think that if you have a nice variety of ingredients in your cupboard, there are always plenty of options when it comes to 'what's for dinner'.  We don't eat a ton of canned veggies in our house, but I think it's a good idea to keep some on hand anyway.  There have been times when I have needed a veggie in a pinch, and I was glad my canned vegetable back-ups!

One of the veggies I always keep stocked in my pantry is canned corn.  I grew up eating canned corn, so I know it can be great served on its own or used as an ingredient in a recipe.  You can use canned corn in soups, in dips, in breads, and served as simple side dish.
