Nummy! This is a great fall Sunday morning treat.
Hey! Remember the corn I bought last week at the Farmers Market? This is what I did with it. I didn't just boil it. Which also is very good don't get me wrong. I did something different.
This is what I did with the corn I bought.
Took the silk out and closed it back up in the husk. Then I soaked it in water for about a half hour.
Then put a pat of butter, salt and pepper on it and wrapped it back up in the husk, then wrapped it in foil.
The Hubs put it on the BBQ. About 10 minutes rolling them occasionally to cook even. I bought way more then we needed. This is very good if you take it off the cob and freeze it. I don't have enough to freeze this time but I'm going to make something fabulous with the left overs. I'll show you in a couple days what that is. I hate waste! I try to use everything up. We did a large batch of BBQ corn last fall and had BBQ corn through out the winter. I used the Food Saver to put the corn in bags for freezing. It worked like a dream! I'm going to try doing it again this year.
I needed something else with dinner that night. I would have been happy with just corn and some bread (Yeah, I'm a carb junkie.) but The Hubs thinks he needs some sort of meat with his dinner.
I had bought some Portabella Mushrooms because they aren't something I have cooked with all. I wanted to try something new. Well I did!
Portabella's stuffed with shrimp.
I just sauteed fresh mushrooms, onions, garlic, thyme and some parsley in butter, added some bread crumbs, salt, pepper and the shrimp. Then I mixed in a little Provolone cheese. Stuffed the mushrooms and put more cheese on top and baked until the cheese was melted. They were good but I thought they needed a little something else. Crab might have been good but they needed a little more flavor. Just not sure what it was missing. The Hubs liked it, I didn't hear word out of him the entire time he was eating.
WHALA! Dinner I took my corn off the cob
The Hubs is all about eating it off the cob. I can't stand the mess and I don't have real front teeth(another funny, not so funny story of my front teeth and the night before I got married) so it's off the cob for me!
That's it for today!
