Summer Dill Corn

Fresh corn on the cob just screams summer!  I have three favorite ways to eat corn on the cob: the "original" way--boiled, butter, salt; grilled; and, dill corn.

This recipe was born years ago after we attended a wedding where they had a cold corn salad, and it was served with a dill vinaigrette.  I kept thinking about that salad & had to make it.  Well, I never made the salad.  But I did end up with an amazing side dish.  This is a great way to use leftover corn on the cob, too!

Dill Corn

1 ear of corn per person
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon dried dill {about half if you're using fresh}
Salt & Pepper to taste

Start by cutting the corn off the cob.  Then, take a spoon & run it all along the cob, scraping out any juice and leftover kernels.  Melt butter in a pan over medium heat, and add in corn & "scrapings."  Sprinkle in salt, pepper and dill, and stir until the corn is coated in butter and seasonings.  
Cook for about 5-8 minutes, until it's heated through & sizzlin'

If you use more than one ear of corn, be sure to increase the butter and dill as well....three ears of corn would have three teaspoons of butter and 3 teaspoons of dill, etc.  You get it ;)

Weekend in Words

The weather was gorgeous all weekend & we took full advantage.  Grilling and a few drinks on the deck, getting some much needed sun on this pasty pale skin....a little too much sun, my left shoulder would tell you.  I stayed out there about 50 minutes longer than I should because I was wayyy too wrapped up reading Bossy Pants.  Hilarious--you should read it.

I decided to stay indoors on Sunday to get some things done & prepare for the week.  About an 1/8 of the things on my list got done before I noticed that the entire last season of Sex and the City was on my DVR.  Next thing I know, I saw Charlotte convert to Judaism, break up with Harry, marry Harry, battle infertility; Elizabeth Taylor win the dog show--on her period!;  Miranda get the chicken pox, meet the doctor, break up with the doctor, marry Steve, move to Brooklyn; Samantha with Smith, Samantha and cancer & Lil Kim's wig; Carrie with Burger, Carrie with the Russian Lovah, and then, finally, Carrie with Big.  Needless to say, I was a hot hormonal mess with a snoring dog, two loads of unwashed laundry, and only frozen meat.

It was pretty much the perfect Sunday.  I hope yours was equally as amazing.
