Elotes for #SundaySupper


Summer’s Best Potluck Dishes
Memorial Day kicks off summer. Some kids are already out of school; mine aren't...not quite yet. But summer means cookouts on the beach and lots of fun, casual potlucks. Often my husband will drag our lil' grill out to the beach and friends will just bring whatever they want to throw on the grill and a dish to share.


Today the Sunday Supper Movement tastemakers are sharing their BEST recipes for summer gatherings! T.R. Crumbley of Gluten Free Crumbley is hosting.

My Offering
I decided to share a recipe for elotes - roasted ears of corn, smeared with butter, topped with cheese (sometimes!), salt, chili powder, and a squeeze of lime juice. My favorite part about this recipe - besides devouring it - is that I roast them in their husks so there is virtually no prep. Then, where ever I am going to serve them, I just quickly heat them on the grill and the husks stay on as a "handle" of sorts.

Ingredients serves 6

  • 6 ears corn on the cob, in their husks 
  • butter
  • salt
  • chili powder
  • limes, cut into wedges

Procedure 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse ears and place corn cobs on a baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes.


When you're ready to serve, peel back the husks and remove the silk.


Wrap the husks near the base of the cob and tie in a knot.


Char the corn on a hot grill and serve immediately with the butter, salt, chili powder and lime cut into wedges.

    1. SO funny that you say that. I almost didn't include it because I never put "devoured" photos up. But there was something that appealed to me with the cobs and the tied husks. Now I'm glad I posted it!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
