Thai Ground Meat with Chiles and Basil

I love this dinner! I’ve always just followed the recipe and been very happy. It calls for 3 hot peppers – on this ingredient I’m usually lenient because I use whatever pepper we have around. Last night it was Mariachi Peppers and a long hot pepper. Last night I used ground turkey and didn’t make the coconut rice, but Basmati Brown Rice (get those whole grains, right?). Still an excellent dinner!

Thai Ground Meat with Chiles and Basil

Corn on the Cob
We tend to be minimalists when it comes to corn on the cob. I husk it, put the cobs in some boiling water that doesn’t even cover the cobs, and let it cook with the cover on for only 5-7 minutes. We barely even put butter, salt or pepper on the corn. I see all these great recipes for fancy butters and cheese for corn on the cob, but I know my husband will just eat it plain old, so I don’t bother.
