Corn Nomz

Today I made the Ina Garten’s Sauteed Fresh Corn.

  • 8 to 10 ears of corn on the cob (yellow or white corn)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Remove the husks and the silk from the corn and cut the kernels off as close to the husk as possible without removing any of the husk. You should have about 7 cups of kernels.

Melt the butter in a large, heavy saute pan. Add the corn, salt, and pepper and saute uncovered on medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all the starchiness in the corn is gone. Taste, for salt and pepper, and serve.

Pomp, Circumstance and Crayons

Today was the graduation at the preschool. It was a fun, busy day. Woke up and helped mom prepare foods. One of my babies had to go to the doctor as well. This morning I wasn’t really hungry, (probably the jack in the crack so close to sleep sleep) so i searched for something simple but savory (cause that is what i was craving). Ended up with:

Instant Chow Mein - Shrimp Flavor

Ate about 1/3 or so… wasn’t really feeling it. Then got showered, dressed and ready to go!

Stopped at sbizzle and got my usual.

Then ate 1.5 quesadillas, made with oaxaca cheese and flour prepared by my mommy. Da bomb. Then spent some time preparing for the graduation and running to the store. Grad took place. The kiddies were soooo adorable. Then dinner! No pictures, because I was too busy inhaling 2 tacos (one of chicken, one of carnitas), some rice and beans, 1 pork tamale with red sauce, 1 quesadilla and some tres leches cake. Nom nom nom. The ppl hired to cater the party made some delicious tacos, delectable beans, tamale and rice were alright, cake was delish.

Then clean up! Lots of packing and unpacking. Then home. At home, drank some sangria with the parental units and munched on some left over carne asada. We have mexican food left over for the rest of life. So much food.

Push It to the Limit!

So Thursday Update cause i didn’t post yesterday.

Woke up, nommed on some larabar, coffee and a sample bite of cookie

Cashew Cookie Larabar and Doppio Espresso w/cream from Peet's

Sample of Choco Chip Cookie from Peet's

and went to the optometrist. Then came home and completed… Day 3 of the fitnesssista’s SSU. SPEED TRAINING!!!!

OMG this kicked my ass, but felt good. I think it also made me super hungry through out the rest of the day. :)

From this, came home, showered and rushed off to the optometrist. Then stopped by Baja Fresh/Borders for some lunchie/caffeine (another doppio espresso w/cream, from SBC this time).

Cilantro Caesar Chicken Salad from Baja Fresh with avocado, tortilla strips and cotija cheese

This salad was pretty good, but huge so I only ended up eating half as I rushed off to babysit. I tried to find the nutrition info for this online, but couldn’t. :-/

Once I got to the house, loved  babysitting the precious. Her dad left some One Speed pizza for me, so of course I had to eat some. One Speed makes such delicious food. Thin crust, light cheese, delicious pepperoni and fresh basil…. mmmmm…..

Delicious Pizza from One Speed - I believe it had pepperoni, basil, and marinara

Then walked about 1.5 miles later in the day during my babysitting job with the little one and the adorable puppy. :)

Buddy! (don't feel comfy posting pics of the chillun online, so the googie it is!)

After this, I went to Cheree’s house and chilled for a bit. She fed me as well… i need to stop associating with so many delicious makers in such a short span… lol…

Chicken Breast baked in TJ Mango Salsa with a little white rice

Yum. Then we went to go watch Clash of the Titans. It was alright. The special effects were pretty good. Story line had some logical fallacies… so grrr. Returned to Cherry’s, and devoured the rest of my salad, as well as watched the tail end of the movie “North Country”. Charlize Theron is pretty good in this movie.

Then drove home, and got seduced by Jack in the Crack. Got a three items for three dollars deal. Plain Jr. Bacon burger, small fry and eggroll. I think my palate is changing a little, cause fast food sounds yummy, but then I eat it, and it seems lacking. Don’t think I will be going to jack in the crack again soon. :-/ Although… i will say… Jack in the Box’s nutritional info online is awesome. It even lets you see what the nutrition is for items that you personalize. I wish every where was like that. :)
