Day 214 (1 Aug 2012) Grilled Corn

Wow, It’s hard to believe that it’s August already!  Where has the year gone?  Summer is almost over 😦  But one of my favorite things to do in the summer is to cook on the grill, and my grilled corn is always asked for at cookouts 🙂

My method of grilling is quite different than that of most people I know.  I actually grill the ears after I husk them.  My secret recipe is this: rub the ear down with butter (the real stuff, not the oil-based stuff that comes in a tub), and sprinkle lightly with Lawry’s Seasoning Salt.  Then I put it on a hot grill, turning till each side is cooked (some kernels start to brown/blacken).  Serve hot!  You can use any seasoning you like: garlic, pepper, curry, etc.  Try it and you will love it!!  Or your money back 🙂

Day 18 (18 Jan 2012) Breakfast, it’s what’s for lunch

Right now I have my camera sitting on a tripod pointed NNE with the shutter open.  It’s been open for about 15 min, and if I don’t plan on shutting it for another 45 min.  I really want to get some start trails 🙂  I just hope my battery is up for the 2hr task (the camera does a noise [that grainy thing you see in some photos taken in low light or indoors] reduction process that takes as long as the exposure to improve the final image).  I won’t know till about 11:35 (or when I wake up and have a photo or not).

Since I planned this from early today (weather.com promised a mostly clear night), I planned ahead so we would all have something to see. 🙂  For a while I’ve been craving pancakes, so I decided to make some for lunch today, since I was working from home.  Nothing fancy, just my lunch:
