Back to the local Farmer’s Market for the first time in a month (I’d been out of town every Saturday). Summer food was in! Tomatoes! Blueberries! Corn! The last baby lettuces (a little leggy, but still fine)! Peaches! Green beans! Cantaloupe! Zucchini! Cucumbers!
I look forward to this influx every year – it’s hard for me to write new interesting things or recipes, because all I want is fresh corn (with a little butter), sliced Cherokee Purple tomatoes, a piece of cheese, and cantaloupe for dessert. Or an appetizer. Or both. So that’s what I had for supper. And it’s probably what I’ll have for supper tomorrow night, too. Yum!
It’s a supper too easy for any recipes, especially since I learned last year to microwave the corn in the husk…and the husk and silk slip right off without difficulty after 2-3 minutes of cooking per ear. This is where I found it this year: http://theculinarychase.com/2012/05/corn-on-cob-cool-and-super-easy-way-to/ and their photo of the last step before eating:
