Out here in the land of no seasons (Los Angeles), we are prone to laziness and outdoor eating. Thus the simplest recipe I can offer is Corn in the husk:

Take one ear of corn, still in the husk, and place on grill, brush with olive oil on top side, as you blacken the bottom in the fire's heat. Turn and brush. Turn and brush. When outer husk is nicely burned blacked, the inside should be nicely cooked, moist, sweet, and ready for the butter!
Put an oven mitt on one hand, and husk away!

It may seem remedial, but it makes for a delicious alternative to boiling the corn. Tastes sweeter, and has a soft hint of the popcorn flavor...

hasmall608,
Ya know, some of the best recipes are made up that way.
Let's throw a little of this, and a little of that. And everyone puts their own little twist on it once they get it anyhow.
That sounds good!!! I will definately give that one a try.
Thanks!!
Weezie
P.S. How come your friend was so scared to post that???

Say HI friend!!!
We don't bite, well, just the zucchini,
and I think Bob and Bill might!

Toast is good too!!
You can eat lot's with toast!!!
We do, with cinnamin and sugar, banana's, jellies, peanut butter, apple butter,
honey butter, and/or garlic powder.

Hello Allthumbs!!!
In the land of laziness, I didn't think everyone was that lazy when I visited LA....
100 yrs ago!! Or my other life time ago!!

But the grillin' sounds chillin'!!
That's a nice twist to the regular
boiled corn. We do somewhat of that,
we soak the corn over night
and then throw it on the grill.
And cook accordingly..............
But the olive oil would add a
bit of moistness and flavor.
They have some flavored butters
you can make too!!
I know a trick when you're presenting
butter to folks instead of everyone
rolling their corn on the butter stick.
You take a tall container like the shape of a pasta storage container...
Fill with water about 3/4 of the way, then take your melted butter and pour on top of water, the two will stay seperated and then you can take your corn and dip it in, and it's completely coated with butter,
Just keep and eye out for amount of butter left in, cause one of the last people through the line may just get buttered water......
Weezie
Thanks for the recipe!!

You can also do the zucchini or almost any veggie on the grill with those new foil bags or make your own with folded over tinfoil.
Take zucchini, onion, tyhme, salt and pepper.
Butter or margarine.
Put the zucchini, onion in bag or on the folded tinfoil, season with the spices, fold the edges up and over. Bake for about 10 minutes on each side...
Weezie
Add yellow squash, mushrooms,
what ever hits your fancy.
And any spices to. Quick and easy!

Hello Weezie, your grilling plan for the zucchini sounds good. I'll pass the info to my friend.
Have no idea why she won't log on. She's a florist so every time I learn something by reading the site I discuss it with her. All I do is brag about you guys and how nice everyone seems! I don't think she's very familiar with internet forums/chats so maybe that's why. I'll work on her though. I really think she'd enjoy the site, even if only reading and not replying.

hasmall608,
A florist, huh???
I absolutely love freesia's & alstromeria's.
I took a couple of florist workshops.......
They were so much fun, but I can't get the little girl that used to collect wild flower arrangements for my mother out of my head, My arrangements are all hap~hazzard looking when I get done with them..... Can't get it controled looking.
I know what she might feel about "CHAT" forums. Wasn't much for 'em myself,
but I love this one.....
Lot's of extremely nice people and gardeners.
Weezie
Ask her what the "official" technical ingredients for water and fresh flowers....?
I've been using a fresh cut at the bottom of the stem, warm water to start with or condition, tiny bit of sugar or 7up and a tiny bit of bleach. Seems to work for me.... I'm wondering if some plants DON'T need conditioning.
Any ideas??
Weezie

Hello weezie,
That's funny, one of my friends favorits flowers is the alstromeria. I'll ask her about the fresh flower care and get back to you on that. I'm sure she'll have some good info. She's actually extremely good. All her arrangements look gorgeous.

One really easy really good Salsa recipe is

18 green table onions sliced 1/8 inch thick
1 large onion (purple is good, Walla Walla is good)diced 1/4 inch
6 cloves garlic chopped
6 tomatoes (baseball sized or larger)
1 jalapeno diced 1/4 inch (more if you like it hotter)
1 green chile diced 1/4 inch
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/4 cup vinegar
1 TBSPN salt
cilantro if you like it
Should make a quart of a little more

Cans well, but best eaten fresh in my opinion

ok - something from me. I just made it yesterday.

Zuccini salad with eggs

Take whole zuccini. If they are to big to go in the pot you may cut them [Wink]
Put them in the pot with cold water and some salt. Then cook for about 45 min - it depends on a size. Use fork to test if they are cooked. They souldn't be too soft or you'll get mashed salad. [Big Grin] Then slice them (1cm width), leeve for a while and the remaining water will come out. Cook the eggs (10 min) and slice them in the salad. Some salt, oil, pepper and vinegar and that's it.
Just remember:
1. This should be made at least a half of day before your meal.
2. Put it on some cold place. It is better and it's realy a salad for hot sommer days.

(soory for my English) [Embarrassed]
