A hot day

Life on the lanai has been very laid back. So laid back that there is little to report to you. The main event is usually dinner. Yesterday Mark grilled hamburgers for the omnivores and I had Harriet the Spy’s favorite lunch. (One of my favorites too.) He also brought corn on the cob to grill along with the meat, but quickly found that our ill equipped kitchen had no tin foil. What to do? Grill it in its husks. But the ends were already cut off. Would it still work? Quick. Call the expert. Rebecca said it probably would be OK. Michelle suggested that we get a recipe she had recently seen on a cooking show, so we Googled and found it. The recipe told us to soak the corn, husks and all for thirty minutes. We decided that this would help counteract the cut off ends, too. The result was wonderful. Here is adorable Chef Mark about to savor the results.
