so you had sundae candy and eye candy.  :)

Something like that, yes.

I don't know where Rocky Ford is, but I sure hope they don't get their irrigation water from the Animas River.  :(

No, Rocky Ford is in the Arkansas River Valley, its water comes from that river. Update on the Animas, the pollution is down in New Mexico now, on its way to Lake Powell. Surprisingly, the EPA has said that the water in the Animas now tests all clear of pollution!
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

I haven't heard anything today; I missed the network evening news today as I was grocery shopping. But NBC has followed the story quite closely. I understand your Governor Hickenlooper actually took a drink out of the Animas.

Over my desk at work I have a postcard whereon you can see a small portion of the Animas. The card shows a train of the Durango & Silverton on the High Line in the Animas Canyon below Silverton.

I'd like to go back there some day.

Yikes! That's the kind of meal I'd have for supper.

Tonight: Barbecued chicken, potato salad, corn on the cob, and ice cream for dessert.

I'm going to try making the corn the way my dad makes it, in the microwave oven, so I don't have a big pot to clean up after supper.

Lunch, such as it was, was just a couple of forkfuls to sample the potato salad I'm having for supper, and about a third of a tomato, with salt and pepper. (The whole tomato originally was about as large as half a cantaloupe.)

Breakfast was a whole-wheat bagel with peanut butter, and coffee.

Let us know how it turns out! I would like to forego washing a large pan myself, but I don't want to end up with microwaved popcorn!

Oh, for a second there, I thought you said you ate a cantaloupe. But Paul tells me East Coast cantaloupes are not very good.

Turned out great! Best corn on the cob I've had all summer! I wish I had asked my dad years ago how he did it!

It's very easy. Husk the corn, and make the corn wet. Wrap the corn in a paper towel, and then make the paper towel wet. Wrap it all in wax paper. Place it on a paper plate and microwave it on High for three minutes. That's all there is to it. (Use potholders to take it out of the microwave because it's HOT!)

I don't use paper plates in my home, so I just placed it on a paper towel in the microwave, and that worked just fine.

By the way, these instructions are for steaming one ear of corn at a time. I don't know how to adjust them to make more than one ear at a time.

Hmm. Well, Paul's a goor-MAY, and he's clearly never had a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, cantaloupe.  ;D

New England melons are non-existent to not very good, and taste like cucumbers. 

I am sure that Lancaster cantaloupes are lovely, as are the Rocky Ford type (these I know). 

Our best melons come "from away", wherever that may be.

There are orange-flesh honeydew melons that I can get at a certain farm stand in Wellfeet on Cape Cod that are beyond gorgeous.  (Gotta check the label next time.)

The best melons I ever had are two:  one, whilst visiting friends in San Luis Obispo, CA, was served after dinner, and I was stopped in my tracks, it was soooooooooo good; and two, was the melon de Cavaillon that I bought in the south of France and broke over a rock to eat like a caveman.  Fantastique!

I made my own home-made breakfast sandwich this morning: Two slices of whole-wheat toast, one fried egg, one slice of turkey breast, one slice of cheese.

With the two slices of toast, it obviously wasn't very low-carb,  :(  but it was pretty good. It might have been improved if I had microwaved it a bit, to melt the cheese, or maybe buttered the bread, but it wasn't bad.

today I felt like cheap fast food, so I had a breakfast sandwich from Burger King.
