Who says you can't teach an old dog (lady) new tricks ? Well Dorie just changed my mind on how to cook corn the easy way. I first tried this recipe a few weeks ago on corn that had already been shucked. I wrapped it in "Martha's Wrap" and then followed the rest of Dorie's instructions. Hubby and I agreed it was the best tasting corn ever.
This is a week of thanks for me. Thanks for:
- the upcoming International Food Blogger's Convention (IFBC) in Seattle, Sept 20-22.
- the work our fellow Doristas have done (especially Mary, Susan, Alice and Trevor) to organize social activities, FFWD signature tote bags, a special place to sit together at the convention and various meet & greets...including one with Dorie Greenspan - our collective idol. Nana and I are over the moon and can not wait to meet all our long time "pen pals" who will be attending this conference.
- thanks to Dorie for a wonderful and crazy easy way to prepare corn on the cob.
- appreciation that this week's ingredients literally cost less than $3 for local farm fresh corn. And tasted amazing.
- thanks that my family all enjoyed the roasting technique.
- sincere thanks that such an easy week came amidst such a busy week as I juggled work, back to school prep for two sons going away AND managed to get a full day visit to 3 colleges for our younger son in Washington DC.
- thanks that I not only visited the colleges, but kept my priorities in check and took the family to Georgetown Cupcakes as well. When in Rome....
- and appreciation for the wonderful memories I have of visiting the actual market on the Boulevard Raspail with Nana on several occasions.
- We usually stayed in that area of Paris when we visited and just hearing the name brings back wonderful memories of the 6th arr and it's neighbors.
