Grilled corn on the cob

Personally, I'm really worried this country is going to go insane over Memorial Day weekend and have parties that lead to a spike in infections, but if you happen to have a safe social distancing BBQ, try this:

For 4 ears of corn:

  • Melt 4 tbsp of butter (1/2 stick), I use a saucepan over low heat because when I try to do this in the microwave it explodes.
  • Mix in a couple teaspoons of black pepper and salt in the melted butter.
  • Remove husks and rinse the corn cobs, then lay out pieces of foil, about 12"x12". You'll want to do this assembly-line style so have the foil laid in a pile.
  • Take each clean cob, lay it on a piece of foil, and brush with the butter/salt/pepper mix all over until it's covered. Wrap each one in the foil, making sure they're completely wrapped up so the butter doesn't drip out while cooking.
  • Grill for about 20 minutes, turning repeatedly. Bryce always starts the corn before the rest of the meat or meat substitutes being grilled, so get these going first. They'll be very hot and a little browned when finished, so give them time to cool before serving!

Pasta w/ Garlic-Butter Sauce

Made this one up last night because I needed a lighter alternative to the cream sauces I've been making lately. It sounds like it would be super-rich, but it's actually not!  Boil 1/2 lb of pasta, go for penne or farfalle, not a spaghetti-type noodle  Prep green beans (cut off the ends, chop into bite-size pieces) and dice up some zucchini. Peas (unfrozen) would also work well in this dish.  While the pasta is cooking, heat 5 tbsp of butter in a large pan, add 1-2 cloves of minced garlic and simmer on medium heat. Add 1 tbsp lemon juice.  Add in the veggies and stir, season with black pepper. You have to keep the heat on med-low so the butter doesn't brown, so this will take a little longer than it usually does to sautee veggies. But your pasta will take 10ish minutes to cook so that's plenty of time.  Once the pasta is cooked and drained, return it to the pot, then add the veggie and sauce mixture to the pot and stir to combine.    Serve topped with shred

Miso soup

This is a serving size for 2: Heat 2 cups of vegetable stock (you could do chicken if you want). Stock comes in cartons, or you can use a bouillon cube, or you can make your own but that's another recipe for another day. Dice up 1 cup of vegetables; aim for hearty ones that won't fall apart in the soup: cabbage, bean sprouts, carrots, and I think mushrooms would work (I don't like them but I could see them being good in this if you do like them). When the stock is boiling add about 1 tbsp of liquid miso...this is a tannish color and comes in a bottle. It's not the dark brown solid chunks of miso. Stir, add your veggies and let them simmer for about 5 minutes, top with some green onions, and you're done!

Pineapple Paella

I'm back! I assumed that making this would be insanely complicated, but it turns out it was easier than like half the stuff I make. No more paella intimidation!  Prepare a meat or meat substitute--chorizo sausage is popular in this I think, but I used one of my go-to fake sausages, Beyond Meat spicy "Italian Sausage" (we grilled over the weekend so I had some in the house).  Whether you're using a sausage or chicken, dice it up and sautee it in EVOO till cooked, set aside.  Doesn't have to be a huge amount. I used two "sausages" so that's probably 1-1/2 cups.  Preheat the oven to 400, and find an oven-safe skillet (cast iron is your friend if you have it). In the skillet, you'll sautee diced vegetables. I'm guessing you could do nearly anything, but here's what I used: Bell pepper tomato onion peas (not frozen) pineapple (yes, pineapple) Probably about 2-3 cups of veggies in total.  Season the veggies with a litt
