Squish and I just got back from a week long trip home to visit the grandparents and to watch my little sister graduate high school. It was a very long week since Squish decided sleep is for wusses, but it was great seeing everyone. I also recently "came out." Understanding my lack of exciting posts from the past two months? ;)

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Nothing tastier!

All you need is corn and a grill. Simple!

First, do NOT remove the husks! I don't even touch the silk. Then soak the corn in water for at least 30 minutes.

Grill at 350* for 45-60 minutes, or if you're impatient like my husband it's still tasty at 375-400* for 20-30 minutes. You will want to turn every few minutes. The husks will brown.

Let cool for a few minutes then carefully remove the husks and silk. I find that removing the silk is easier now than before the corn is cooked.

I meant to take a picture before I removed my husk, but hunger won out.

Menu: May 1-7

That's right a MENU! Let's start this month off right! Hit up the commissary this morning. Managed to only spend $60 for everything we need for this next week, so I'm getting back on track with our budget again. Food is a bit more expensive here and DS is eating more, so my old $50 goal will be hard to reach.

Tuesday: Black bean spinach enchiladas in green chile cream sauce
Wednesday: Scramble egg stromboli with bacon
Thursday: Turkey parmesan burgers and tater tots
Friday: Spaghetti and meatballs; toddler/family cooking project: rice crispy treats
Saturday: Out to eat (day trip out of town)
Sunday: Grilled tilapia with pineapple salsa over rice with grilled zucchini
Monday: Baked chicken and broccoli with herb pasta and steamed carrots

Trying a few new recipes. If I like them, I'll link to them. If I don't, then you won't hear another word. Ha ha. No sense in sharing recipes that aren't tasty!

We did manage to eat fairly well the past few days since my last post. Saturday we had tacos with black bean and corn salad. Sunday we had spiced beef kabobs, grilled corn on the cob, and mac and cheese. Yesterday, Monday, we had red beans and rice.
