I hate corn silk.

In the history of mankind, perhaps the universe, I don’t believe that there is any more substance that has evolved on our planet more irritating than corn silk. Don’t try to lead me astray with your lies, either. Removing it under running water, slicing around the bottom, just removing the stuff by hand, even using (gasp) a microwave. I’ve tried them all, and they are LIES. The stuff can never be completely removed.

With that out of the way, I present my triumphant return to food blogging! Both of my readers have missed my sporadic updates terribly, and I do enjoy writing about my attempts to cook. Today, I present a grilled chicken sandwich with aioli, along with a grilled corn salad!

My parents have this cat. Miss Kitty. She’s 18 years old and she’s looking a little rough around the edges. She’s blind and I think she may be going deaf, her back legs don’t work so well, and if she weighs more than five pounds, I’d be surprised. My parents went away for a couple weeks and asked if I’d stay here to look after Kitty. The neighbours were going to do it, but I think they’re a little worried that kitty may die on their watch. She doesn’t seem to be in any pain, which is good, and she as a healthy appetite, but she gets lost and confused and frequently runs into walls. And she doesn’t like to be alone.

How does cooking fit into this?

It is currently 12AM, Monday morning/Sunday night, and it’s been one hell of a lousy weekend. Saturday was spent putting together furniture and fantasizing about suicide and/or homicide, and Saturday night was spent hunting down my rat faced shitbastard of a cat, Izzy, who had broken a brand new lamp.

To compound this, Katzilla, our other cat, was also being an absolute terror, and because of our two furry companions Tracy and I slept around six hours between the two of us. So for Sunday’s offering, I’ve decided to bake my kitten Izzy into a delicious pie.

I’ve been planning on baking a caramel apple pie for some time now. We found the recipe at one of our favourite stores, Quality Greens. I love this place. We can get a ton of great fruit and vegetables for much less than I always expect to pay. And their deli has some amazing sandwiches.

Anyway! So I found this pie. It seemed like the perfect thing to make while having dinner with my parents. My dad loves those little caramels and he’s a fan of apple pie. And I think I make a pretty decent pie crust.

Alright, so we had to get some furniture moved from Tracy’s parents’ house to our place. A co-worker and friend, simply known as Joe offered some help, so we took him up on it. His reward? Some beer and a dinner cooked by yours truly. I had casually asked Joe what his favorite meat was (Joe being a meat-eating sort of guy), and he responded prime rib. Sure thing, I always wanted to cook a prime rib and we have more disposable income than we’re used to. So here’s the plan, according to Joe’s ideal meal:

Whipped garlic mashed potatoes.
Broccoli with a cheese sauce.
Roasted prime rib.

To quote my friend Joe, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this.

My first meal here is going to be taken directly from celebrity chef Tyler Florence, who’s delicious recipes I have been gleefully ripping off for some time now. Not sure how he stacks up as a cook, but whatever. I like his stuff. What I’m attempting here is some southern style cooking; barbecued chicken, cornbread, and coleslaw with pecans and a spicy sauce. The recipes are all being taken directly from the food network website. This is my first attempt to blog my cooking, and so here goes!
