    So I go into the kitchen, and see a bag. Inside is unshucked corn.

    "Where did the corn come from?" I call into the bedroom.

    "Oh, Lou gave that to us earlier today."

    Ah, nice to be in the loop. So I cooked an ear, and just finished it, at midnight our time. Delicious! Nothing makes an American happier than eating fresh corn on the cob. And even at this hour, I don't think it's bad for me. YUM!!! icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh don't let the whackos who believe in the Paleo diet here you say this because they will lecture you about how bad corn is for you and that it is not a starchy vegetable but a grain in their opinion. They also condemn potatoes for not being all that nutritious for you as well. That Paleo diet is one radical, kooky diet. Corn and potatoes and of course rice are all bad for you and your body is not meant to eat them. That is why I don't pay much mind to these latest diets like that Paleo nonsense.

    I cook both corn and potatoes (including Sweet) in the microwave. So easy! And both come out just as good, if not better, than traditional methods. A couple of the foods you really can cook well in the microwave.

    So I just shuck the corn, wrap it in microwavable plastic with butter inside, and zap it. Voila! Perfect corn on the cob. No interminable boiling of a huge pot of water, when I just want one ear for myself. And there's no cleanup, except a plate to hold the ear, and the 2 cornholders.

    It only takes 3 - 5 minutes to boil corn on the cob...

    Tonight I had two with grilled chicken, bell pepper, red onion and apple kabobs

    And how long does it take to heat the pot of water to boiling? And then you gotta clean the pot. Trust me, the microwave has it beat. And it tastes just as good.

    It takes less time than grilling the chicken.

    I've never understood why corn cobs with corn attached are called ears. It makes about as much sense as calling potato sprouts eyes.

    So... you've never actually been in a corn field?

    We bring home whole rotisserie chicken that's hot and ready to eat. We just make the sides. Or sometimes we will have some chicken breasts, and can grill them in the same time as it takes the sides. In like 5 minutes.

    My husband will disagree, but one of my rules is that the cooking should take no longer than the eating of it.
