Conventional Corn On The CobThursday, September 06, 2012
There haven’t been any TV trays but I must confess here that we have been watching, when possible, the Rachel Maddow Show from 6 to 7 pm and in the last two weeks our eyes and ears have been pointed at all the major speeches of the conventions. That Maddow was the news anchor for MSNBC’s Democratic Convention coverage was an added bonus.
It meant I had to have food ready by 6. This food had to be portable (as in placing on the end tables of our den where our TV is) and light. This, in most cases, consisted of blender fruit smoothies and some sort of barbecued meat or vegetable. But the one constant has been my barbecued corn (two ears) which Rosemary does not partake of.
I place the two ears on a very hot barbecue and every now and then I move them with tongs to the long dish you see here that has pats of butter. I do this back and forth until the corn is nicely done (and black in several places). During the cooking I slather Nando’s Extra Hot Piri-Piri sauce. In the two weeks I have gone through three bottles. The last one ran out today before Obama’s speech.
And of course I sprinkle my very hot corn with Meldon Sea Salt.
