Bing, my youngest grandchild, age 6, baseball is just beginning. This proud "Mimi" thinks he looks pretty special there behind homeplate in his catcher's gear. Let's hope it is the best gear available...highly protective! He has moved way beyond the time when Mimi could kiss his boo-boos and make it feel better! Damn, they sure grow up too fast!
Have you ever heard of StumbleUpon.com ? It is a service that lets you sign up for web pages and blogs that feature the things you like most. I registered for Art, Art History, Architecture, Food and Wine. This service chooses new sites for me to check out, and I have found some interesting things by following their lead. They send it out once a week, but you can always go to the sitr and request something anytime. Today I received an interesting food site, Divine Caroline, that was featuring cooking corn on the cob. I have not tried this recipe, but it sounds like it could work! I have always added sugar to my pot of water when cooking corn, but milk and butter with brown sugar instead of granulated? I am anxious to give it a try. Here is the recipe.
1 1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1. Fill a large stock pot half full with water (use a large enough pot to hold all the corn). Add in the milk, sugar and butter.
2. Bring to a boil, then add in the corn cobs. Reduce heat to a simmer and allow corn to cook for 7 to 8 minutes or until just tender, depending on size of corn try not to over cook the corn as it will become tough.
3. Using long tongs remove and place on a plate or in a bowl, then cover with foil until ready to serve. Serve with butter and salt to taste
If you want to look around the web yourself, searching for something that might interest you, go for it. But I am a little too cautious for that, I will let stumpleupon do it for me.
