Well, it's Friday again!! I hope you've had a wonderful and safe holiday, and are staying relatively cool in your neck of the woods... It's really hot here - 104 on Thursday, a new record, and I heard on TV that the Fourth of July was the hottest one ever in Nashville! I'm really grateful for air conditioning and floor fans... ;-)
So here's what I finished this week - I say finished because I didn't start any of them, just did the quilting and binding...
These three are all for the quilt ministry.
But here's something really whoop-worthy! My husband spotted a recipe in his running magazine - and I happened to have fresh corn on hand...
Mexican Street Corn
4 ears fresh corn, shucked
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 T. olive oil
1 T. chili powder
Grated zest and juice of one lime
Salt and black pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup crushed tortilla chips or cubed, dried, whole grain bread
1 ounce queso fresco or cotija cheese
Prepare a grill to medium high heat and put the rack four inches from the fire, or turn the oven to 500 degrees F. Grill or roast the corn, turning occasionally, until some kernels char a bit and other lightly brown, 15 to 20 minutes. In a bowl combine mayonnaise, oil, chili, lime zest, juice, salt and pepper. Pulse the remaining ingredients in a food processor until crumbly, then spread on a plate. When the corn is done, remove ears from the heat and smear evenly with mayonnaise mixture. Roll them in the crumb mixture and serve immediately.
MMMMM, it's tasty!!
(which means it's probably not good for you, but who cares?)
And a cute picture from Tuesday - I dragged out the Bumbo and Miss Emmy really enjoyed sitting up to watch cartoons!
