This checklist adds up to great things to come this winter:
ü Fresh sweet corn from the farmer down the road - $4 a dozen
ü A sweet hubby willing to shuck the sweet corn while I am at work
ü A big pot of boiling water for blanching said corn
ü A big bowl of ice water for cooling the corn down after blanching
ü A nice sharp knife to cut the corn off the cob
ü A pan to cut the corn into
ü A big spoon to spoon corn into freezer bags
ü And, of course, a freezer to freeze said corn in
I freeze things in small quantities these days – you know, just enough to feed two old folk. It is just a simple matter of taking more than one package from the freezer if we are having a “guess who’s coming to dinner?” day.
So what did you do last night after a hard day at work? - that is if you spent a hard day at work.
I spent 3 hours at the Dr’s with one of the grandsons, plus an hour drive each way. All is well, but I don’t believe there is anything more tiring than a day at the Dr’s. Shoot, there weren’t even any interesting articles with great tips in them! Bummer.
