Soak it in the sink in the husk for about 10min and than cook in the oven at about 350 degrees or on your grill for about 15-20min. It tastes so yummy and you have one less pot to clean, plus it is soooo easy to husk this way too.100_3557100_3558100_3559Hubby, tweeny, and I went away on Sunday for a road trip since the other two had scammed sleep overs the night before during hubbys forthieth b-day party.  This waterful was even amazing in the rain.100_3560100_3563100_3570100_3571100_3573100_3574100_3575100_3569Princess and my niece did the kids min tri the other night which was the first time for princess.
