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!
I love her! Wet hair and all……….what great entertainment.
Corn on the cob is fun food!
We grill ours all summer long. Same technique…leave husks on. IT gives it a great smokey undertone.
I love this. We have a video of our youngest when she is about 5 months old and she’s sucking on a rib. It didn’t have any meat on it (convenient since she had no teeth) but boy it still had some taste. I’m holding onto it for someday when she goes through her vegetarian stage, so I can torment her with it.
WAIT! WHAT?! No way! My preferred method is grilled but with our little hibachi… not much fits! This is much better than boiling!
Love that kern-loving chica!
