Saturday morning after hearing that the farmers market wouldn't be open we went for a walk and stopped at the store on the way home. We picked up a chicken and some corn and for dinner made Beer Can Chicken. We hadn't made this in ages, I think the last time may have been here. The barbeque gave us some trouble, and for the first time we had difficulty keeping the chicken upright - it fell over 3 times, I think. But it was the most tender, moist chicken I've ever had.The corn were 6 for $2.00. We pulled out the silk, most of the outer leaves, and grilled all of them.
The people at the book sale I mentioned yesterday called me this morning at work. We got a whole bunch of new books in Sara! Come and see! Damn them. So I went. I didn't find any new cookbooks, but did get another food magazine for a dime. When I got home tonight I was annoyed to see that the prevoius owner had cut out some recipes. If you're going to cut up a magazine then recycle it. Don't donate it to a book sale!
Tonight for dinner we had leftover Beer Can Chicken. I turned the rest of the corn into Corn Fritters.
3 ears of grilled corn, kernels scraped off
1/2 cup plus 2 tb milk
1/3 cup cornmeal
3 tb flour
salt and pepper
Mix all ingrediants together. Heat a large pan over medium heat, coat very lightly with oil. Drop batter by large spoonfuls. Cook until browned; flip over and cook other side.
Serve with sour cream, butter or just salt and pepper.
