Peeling some sweet late-summer corn for tonight’s dinner. Yes, I am wearing a cashmere Michael Kors minidress in August. Our apartment has two temperatures: blazingly, miserably, sluicing-sweat-inducingly hot…or arctic. Oh, and our A/C blasts at about ten billion decibels, so if we’re watching TV or, you know, trying to have a conversation, it’s a no-go.
Boil corn 3-4 minutes (add after water is already boiling). Drain, toss with butter, sea salt, a touch of garlic salt, and a squeeze of lemon.
