Littlest enjoyed her first corn on the cob tonight. While this is hardly news worthy, it provided a full evening of entertainment at The Schell Cafe. Husband has about 20 minutes of video documenting every kernel. The highlight of which is hearing Littlest say ‘kern’, because that’s the way Husband taught her to say corn.
Did you know you can microwave corn in the husks to perfection? A year or so ago my friend Lulu told me this trick and I’ve never looked back. You simply lop off the husky ends with the stems and put the cobs directly on your microwave plate. Cook for 3 minutes and the husks and silky threads will come right off the kernels. Add a little butter and salt and fait accompli!
