The last time I was home my mom had this big box of corn from my great uncle's farm. Yum, yum!
Chili-Lime Corn on the Cob
4 ears shucked corn
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp grated lime rind (I just used lime juice--I realize its not quite the same thing, but close enough.)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1. Place corn in a microwave-safe dish; cover dish with wax paper. Microwave at high for 7 min or until tender.
2. Place butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 15 seconds or until butter melts.
3. Stir in chili powder, lime rind, salt and pepper.
4. Brush butter mixture evenly over cooked corn.
If you have a kitchen full of other veggies or just want to take advantage of all the fresh goodness, then you must make this:

I found this recipe on Kate's blog. She adapted it from Cooking Light and it is oh so good!
It has become a regular in my rotation.
I bring my lunch to work almost every day. I discovered the best pre-made salad at Target.
