Food Pics!

15 May

So, I had promised you some food pics. Here they are. Not the prettiest, but hey, cooking shouldn’t be about contests, right?

In case you wondered about the roasted corn: I had taken a Mexican means of seasoning roasted corn-on-the-cob and modified it to in-house stove cooking. In a cast iron skillet, with melted butter (about 3 to 4 Tbs.) I sprinkled in some cayenne pepper and poured in about 12 to 14 oz. frozen corn. On medium heat, I stirred around, letting corn get cooked to a roasted texture (about 10 to 15 minutes). Once cooked and beginning to look slightly wrinkly-charred, turn off heat. Squeeze in about 1/4 lime, and stir in a couple tablespoons of mayo. Sprinkle in parmesean or romano cheese and stir. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and eat up. You can use Canola oil in place of butter, but I would finish off with a little butter in the end. Normally, all of these ingredients would have been smothered on roasted corn-on-the-cob. Either way, it’s really, really yummy. Even the picky buggars like it.

    These pictures look really amazing. I need to go back to making proper meals. We’ve all been pick-pick-picking, lately. With the good weather, the kids have been out a lot and seem to end up grabbing pizza a lot.

      Hold on to your pants, Pantsy. Yesterday, I grilled out some lime marinated boneless chicken thighs, along with grilled portabello mushrooms and onions. I’ve got some nice pics of a quinoa/brown rice salad which I made as an accompaniment. And, of course, my infamous roasted red potatoes (because violin girl’s friend requested them). Easy and quick. Perfect for summertime. Pics coming shortly. As long as a certain someone doesn’t “accidently” delete them.
