I'm just going to get the confession out of the way right now. I can't stand the guilt any longer. It's giving me writers' block.
I've had this post in my head for months. It's one of those not-so-earth-shattering bits of knowledge that I think it'd be fun to share, so I've filed it away in my head to put out there when I can't think of anything better. And guess what? I can't think of anything better. So here it is.
Wow! That felt great. Confession really is cleansing.
This time of year I measure my days in dirt . . . meaning, how much dirt is blowing around in the air. Yesterday was a good day. The wind was blowing, but not hard enough to blow the dirt from the next county over in my back door. So, we fired up the grill.
We haven't grilled in a while, it being winter and all, but it's one of my favorite ways to cook. Probably because I don't really do the cooking when we grill. That's totally Honey's domain. I don't even know how to turn it on.
But since I like grilling so much, I look for ways to cook other stuff on the grill besides meat. Because what could be better than a whole entire meal cooked on the grill and not in my kitchen?
Last summer I was just beginning my little weight loss venture, and I happened upon a recipe for grilling corn on the cob. I didn't really like the ingredients it suggested, but it did spark a tiny bit of creativity in my little head and I tried my version of the grilled corn on the cob.
And I'm going to share it with you, today, in honor of the unofficial beginning of grilling season.
*Disclaimer* Remember, it's not earth shattering, so there is a significant chance that I'm not the first one to suggest this as an acceptable way to grill corn.
Tear a piece of foil large enough to wrap up 1 piece of corn. On the foil, spray 3-5 sprays of butter, and sprinkle a bit of ranch seasoning. Roll the corn in the butter/seasonings, and then wrap.
