Homemaker Monday: Corn in it's Husk to Corn on the Dinner Table in 2 Minutes Flat

Welcome to the 50th weekly edition of...


Thank you for joining us! If you're new to this carnival and would like to enter your post, please check HERE for the rules and regs.

YOURS: This week's "YOURS" go to Suzanne over at The Singer Sentinel! Although I don't usually choose recipes that aren't vegan for the featured post, I had to share with you her accomplishments of the day. I was TRULY inspired! I have to tell you that I know this lovely lady in real life and she is probably the second most organized person I know on the face of the planet. She was at the top of the list for many years, until I got remarried and met my husband's mother. She has usurped your position, Suzanne. Sorry. Anyway, Suzanne prepared an unbelievable SEVENTEEN freezer meals in one day! AMAZING! I must be more like her, as I am really going to need lots of freezer meals once the new little one arrives. Thanks for your inspiration, Suz! To see all the wonderful meals she prepared and for her pork chop with lima beans recipe, click HERE. Thanks again, Suzanne! Miss ya!

MINE: My father was a man who loved to find the quickest way to prepare food. Once he had discovered what he considered an ingenius improvement on how "normal" people cook, he would call us all into the kitchen and show us his new technique, his chest puffed up in pride, and insist that we taste the food to prove that it was as good as the former slow method. Here's what I learned from him about cooking corn...

Step 1: Pick or buy ears of corn in their husks, like this...



Step 2: Place an ear in the microwave, like this...


Step 3: Set the microwave to cook it on high for this long...


(If you put more than one corn in the microwave, the average cooking time per ear of corn is about a minute and a half. )

Step 4: Remove corn from microwave and peel back husk, like so....(but be careful. It's hot!)


Step 5: Place on a plate and slather with butter, salt and pepper and consume...


(Make sure you have a napkin handy.)

And, as always, here's the proof it was good...


Enjoy!

OURS: K, totally nauseated right now, so no long thanks or encouragement today. Here's MckLinky...

The corn looks yummy! I never thought of putting it in the microwave, thats quicker and much easier than boiling.
Thanks for hosting!

Thanks for the tip! We always boil ours and it takes a long time. We've got some corn in the fridge, so I will definitely try this tonight.
