Hey fools. Here’s a little update for that ass.

This week was pretty much a blur. I did get a nice little vegetable garden going in our miniscule backyard. I’ve got a couple rounds of peas going, as well as tomatoes, cukes, and carrots. This is my first big project with veggies, so I’m hoping I can yield some product.

In honor of Pat not losing his job, the Doctors Thing threw him a party on Friday. We did some BBQing and catching up on recent events. Ryan and Makiko were in attendance. Considering they are getting married in only two weeks, I thought they were staying pretty calm.

The man of honor was looking pretty smart himself.

Saturday, we did some business around the house and then headed out to Phil and Becky’s, in Manlius. They moved into a new house fairly recently, and this was the first time we saw their new place. My big brother did quite well for himself. Their new house is great. Unfortunately, I’m a bonehead, so I didn’t take any pictures of the new place.

They cooked a lovely seafood stew inspired by Danny Wegman.

Now, we’re trying to savor what’s left of the weekend.

To add cayenne or not to add cayenne, that is the question? WWLD?

#2

Yup, cayenne. If they like hot stuff, they'll definitely love this corn. Seriously. I can't stress that enough.

#3

ground red pepper = cayenne?
Actually, knowing my family, hot chili peppers will work their way in there somehow no matter what.

George - there's more to it than just lime. Well, you could just add lime, but that's just part of the fun. Here's the full recipe:
1 1/2 Tbsp. melted butter
1/4 tsp. grated lime rind (optional)
1 1/2 Tbsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
8 ears cooked corn
Mix all ingredients and brush on cooked corn. You can thank me later. (Actually, you can thank Melissa Thingvoll for giving it to me and Cooking Light for giving it to her. Not sure how 1 1/2 Tbsp of butter constitutes cooking light, I'm I'm all for it!)

Just thought I should mention, I've introduced the idea of lime on grilled corn for my family's Memorial Day BBQ. The grilled corn is a staple; the lime is new. I'm intrigued.

so i am up in canada taking care of my boyfriend's niece and nephew (and consequently considering the idea of remaining childless forever)...and discovered the kittenwar. i just wanted to say thanks for giving me something mindless & stress-free to do today.

I just wanted to add, in case anyone believed otherwise, that lime on grilled corn began at 26 Buckingham Street 2 years ago...I'm glad to see that it is still making people smile everywhere:-)
Actually, I think it began in "Cooking Light"...but I'll just pretend the Thingvolls and Froehlers invented it
Can't wait to everyone on June 4th!!

haha, you're right Makiko, it was way too cold that night! I just love that picture of you guys, so I had to post it. Anyhoo, it was great hanging out with you guys and reminiscing about how you met and fell in love. We can't wait for your wedding!

And lime on corn changed my life.

Ryan and I are having cold feet in that photo you've posted, because of the unusually chilly Rochester nights. The fact that it's 2 weeks before our wedding has absolutely nothing to do with that reaction on our faces. By the way, lime on the grilled corn is very fantastik.
