What's for dinner? Saturday 3rd of November

We're going to a Braai (BBQ) at the church. I've taken out some lamb ribs and chicken thighs and I'll make some cheezy garlic rolls to grill and make a green salad to take with.

You must be in a different zone. Here in California the 3rd of November is a Saturday. Don't worry Snippy, the mods will fix your title for you. ;)

I'm currently listening to Pink Floyd "The Wall" on You-Tube (on my new Internet connected Blu-Ray player.) That's where my head is at at this time of night, almost midnight here in US-PDT. Oh and this weekend we go from daylight saving to standard, for those who have DST. (Stupid idea IMO--I hate the government messing with the clocks. Next thing they'll be adding stuff to our water...)

So what to have tomorrow night? Why don't you just tell me and save me the effort of figuring it out?

I kind of want barbecued chicken because you can eat a whole lot for not that much money. I have a standing invitation for a friend to come over and I'll cook BBQ chix. If so I'll maybe serve my (mom's) quick barbecue beans (posted elsewhere on this forum) and chili corn. (recipe follows)

Chili corn:

ingredients

ears of corn (depends on how many eaters and how hungry each)
butter (or margarine)
chili powder (any store brand works fine)

method

Microwave: Husk the ears of corn and wash them in water. (The water is part of the recipe, have a few drops of moisture on them, to turn to steam in the microwave.) Butter the ears with ... well, butter... or use margarine. Dose them liberally with chili powder. Upon cooking the chili powder gets milder so be liberal with it. Or if you have ppl who don't like spicy then use less. Wrap the ears in plastic wrap. Nuke on high, time depends on how many ears you want and how many you nuke per batch. (This is easy peasy if you're cooking for one--one person, one batch--one ear.) A couple minutes for two ears might work.

Nuke it more if it's not to taste. Note that raw corn is perfectly edible. One story has it that the perfect corn involves boiling water in the field and then bending the plant over and sticking the ears in the boiling water. Don't pick them until they're hot enough to eat.

Oven: same as above but use aluminum foil, and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, adjust time to your preference, 10-20 minutes.

It's still 15 til midnight. I'll tell you tomorrow what I'm having on Saturday... or Thursday... depending on your time zone.

ETA: Still Friday here, still playing Pink Floyd on You-Tube, 9 minutes to Saturday and counting...

We don't need no revolution, we don't need no thought control!

I'll see ya tomorrow Snippy, today for you. I've got some dynamite coffee I bought at Whole Foods Market this afternoon, called "Sumatra Blue Batak" ($14.99/lb.) and the smell is keeping me up! I've already freshly ground it and added the water to the coffee maker, and only needs about 8 hours sleep (that's 5 for me on account of insomnia) and then a flick of the switch to turn it into hot brown happiness!

Maybe then I can envision what dinner will be...
