Corn on the Cob Easy Peasy!

I used to cook corn on the cob in boiling water for 10 minutes and take it out and butter. That involved shucking the corn and dealing with the silks. What a mess.

The key phrase is "I used to". Then, our friend, Tom, gave us the 'Tip of the Year' (to date). Microwave it! Yea! No more silks to deal with and it's ready to eat in about 5 minutes-4 minutes in the microwave and 1 minute to put on the plate.

Chuck was in charge and did a great job so I took a video to walk you through the process. Here you go! Good Luck and happy eating.

My Favorite $5 Wine

I discovered 'Tisdale' wines about five years ago. I am always on the hunt for good wines at 'low' prices. I like their Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay the best. They do have some other whites and reds, but have not found them to my taste.

Seasonal flowers
welcome you
before you open
the door!
Fantastic China is 'FANTASTIC'. I had friends say they feel like they are in New York City. It is a small intimate restaurant in 'The Heights, a fashionable area in Little Rock. 

When we lived in Little Rock, that was one of our favorite go to restaurants when we didn't want to cook at home. It was about five minutes from our house. We now live about an hour from there and get to go only when we come to 'town'. We went to 'town' yesterday and were about 5 minutes from there. So we went! Same place, same good food, same good service. 
Modern decor
Lights over bar
No bar seating
Booths and Tables

My favorite is Moo Goo Gai Pan which I get every time. Chuck wants to try something new every time. This time he chose the Chinatown Special. We had enough to take home for another meal. 

Mints on the way out.
If you haven't been there, highly recommend 
you go!
