Steamed Mussels with Corn and Tomatoes

Steamed Mussels with Corn and Tomatoes

Remove as much of the corn silk as possible. Trim off the stalk ends from the cob. Stand the ears up on a cutting board and, using a short sharp knife, shave off the kernels. Get as much of the kernels as possible without cutting into the cob and be careful, the kernels have a tendency to fly all over the kitchen.

Put the corn kernels, mussels, and 1/2 cup water in a wide deep skillet or Dutch oven. Cover and bring to a boil over mediumhigh heat. Steam, shaking the pan occasionally, just until the mussels open up, 3 to 5 minutes.

While the mussels are steaming, toss the tomato, red onion, yellow pepper, cilantro, olive oil, garlic, chile, and lime juice together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

When the mussels are open, scoop them out with a skimmer and put them in a serving bowl large enough to hold them comfortably. Add the tomato mixture to the mussel steaming liquid, give it a quick stir and pour everything in the pan over the mussels. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.

Note: Most mussels found in markets today are ‘cultivated’ meaning that they are raised in a controlled environment and are much less likely to be muddy or to sport “beards,” the wiry growths that protrude from the shell. If the mussels you buy have beardsyou’ll find them sticking out from between the shells about halfway down the flat side of the musselsimply give the beards a good, firm tug to remove them. In any case, it’s a good idea to rinse the mussels in a colander under cold water before cooking them.

Simples Ways to Make Exercise Fun

Simples Ways to Make Exercise Fun

There are people out there who actually enjoy exercise. But if you aren’t one of them, they can seem like a different species. Why would anyone rather hit the gym after work than have drinks with friends, or come home to their family or heck, just crash on the couch?

The reality is that we all possess the ability to tap into an enjoyment of exercise. In fact, it’s kind of like Dorothy’s red slippers you’ve had the potential all along. To find it, you need to seek out what exercise professionals like to refer to as the fun factor. Once you find an exercise or sport that’s enjoyable, it won’t be a chore, and you’ll want to do it again and again.

There are two ways to increase the fun in your workout: Minimize monotony and routine, and maximize variety, enjoyment and physical beauty. It’s all about feeling your body and feeling the elements water, wind, earth against your body.”

Researchers at Tufts University even say that the more fun an exercise is, the more stress it reduces. But it only works if you can determine what’s fun for you. If you’re a social animal, try out group activities such as mall walking, team volleyball, square dancing, a running club or softball. If the wild calls, consider mountain biking, snowshoeing, or crosscountry skiing. And for those who crave singular, intense tasks, try rockclimbing or marathons. Whatever you decide, the key is to investigate, experiment and try a variety of activities.

Experiment with your inner athlete

Remember, even athletes get the blues. Or at least they get bored. “I’ve always enjoyed exercise, but like anyone, I can get in a rut, especially when I’m not improving,” says Bacci. For her, the rut arrived when she felt her tennis game stalling. “So I did something a lot of people might consider odd,” she says. “Instead of focusing on my game, I started focusing on my body while I played.”

Bacci thought about her feet when she was running on the court, the feeling of the racket in her hand, and the pleasurable feeling of the wind on her shoulders and face. And get this: Her game improved by leaps and bounds. “I was getting more in touch with myself, instead of trying to perform or achieve some goal.” And that’s when she started having fun.
