This is off topic somewhat, but what you said reminds me of something I did several years ago when one of my exs and I were throwing a BBQ at her house. Some of the friends had all these requests before hand, since my ex had the brilliant idea of asking them if they had any preferences (i.e. some wanted their meat well done, some wanted their food not spicy, etc., etc.). I got so irritated that this is what I did. For those that said they couldn't eat spicy food (one of the dishes was grilled shrimp in a thai marinade), I made some plain shrimp. No salt, no seasoning, nothing. And I overcooked them. For those that said they wanted their meat well done, I bought some cheap select sirloin, then cooked the **** out it. The other meat was choice NY strips which I made all medium rare. Then, the funny thing is that many of those people had no problems eating the spicier shrimp and less cooked NY steaks later on. Well, I found it funny but I'm sadistic like that so...

I have tried a new way for us with sweet corn. When we are only having one ear each, I pull off some of the dark leaves and put in microwave for 5 mins. We love it ! so easy to peel after - silk and all !

Keltin - you could try this for your wife !
