Ken Don’t Lie

This post is only important if you love corn on the cob.  Skip it if you don’t.  Just saying.

First – watch this YouTube Video.  Delight in the Joy that is Ken.

Second – show this video to a 3 year old who then will ask you continually for corn on the cob.  CONTINUALLY.  Put her to bed promising corn on the cob for dinner the next night.  Get woken up at 7:30 am by a little voice saying “wake up, Mummy, it’s CORN ON THE COB TIME!”  Try to explain when dinner is and when it is NOT.

Third – after a LONG day, force said 3 year old to take a nap, and listen as she wakes up at 4 pm SOBBING that she has not yet purchased her corn on the cob for dinner.  Pack everyone in the car and head to Publix.  REJOICE, because fresh sweet corn on the cob is on sale!  Purchase 6 ears.

Check out our ears (pay no attention to the lack of pants).

Fourth – follow Ken’s directions exactly, making sure the 3 year old knows which number is “8” on the microwave.  (Don’t worry, she catches on pretty quickly).

Into the microwave.

Fifth – allow 3 year old to find a stool and WATCH you cut the corn, but realize she is going to insist on “shaking” it herself.  (It’s not as hot as you would imagine.)



Sixth – ENJOY!


She LOVED it, and it was perfect.  My only other statement is you really have to cut about an inch off the bottom of the cob and make sure you cut through ALL the husks.  The first one was tricky, but by number four, we had it down pat.  And it was delicious, not a single silk on any of our ears!

The end result. Who said corn doesn't go with pasta???

Can’t wait to make it again!  Easy as PIE!

    If you are looking for good veggies and fruit check out eat right atlanta. Its a cool food co-op. We get the standard $15 veggie fruit mix and we still have a lot to last us for two weeks.

    Corn absolutely goes with pasta, and I am SO trying that! 🙂
