Well, we had the Greatest Weekend Ever! The first time all six kids have been home together in six years, so this was a Wonderful Weekend at Ruthy's house!!!!
Did we cook?
I wanted to spoil them with Ruthy-food, and (of course!!!) free Ruthy-advice!
We made stuffed mushrooms, RECIPE HERE!!!!!! bacon-wrapped scallops (no brainer on that one, but I'll show you step by step soon!) steaks on the grill, Lindi Peterson's famous MACARONI AND CHEESE (yes, that's a live link to the recipe, a new Blodgett/Herne family fave!!!) and a BLT salad (made by my niece Wende and AMAZING....) and Crab Alfredo (made by Lacey, my beautiful daughter-in-law) which was a-stinkin'-mazing and oh my stars, so much else.... and yes, I'll give you those recipes in the coming weeks, so much fun to try new things!!!!
Burgers on the grill, Zweigle's hot dogs, fresh corn on the cob....
And that's what brings me to this:
MICROWAVED CORN because it was so easy and I'm still in awe!
Take one ear of corn.
Put it in the microwave on high power for four minutes.j
THAT'S IT!!! AND NOW COMES THE MAGIC PART!!!!
Cut off "handle" end at the edge of the ear of corn....
Hold the "silk" end and PULL.......
Everything slips off! The husk, the silk, everything! It's the best short-cut EVER!!!!!!
In 4 minutes and NO PANS TO WASH, I can have an ear of corny deliciousness!!!! HAPPY RUTHY!!!!!
And here is happy Ruthy in the bounce house last weekend with a crowd of grandkids:
And yes: I BOUNCED! GREAT WORKOUT!!!!
