What did I do with all that corn?

I made salsa! Its contents: one ear of corn, one tomato (peeled with my new favorite gadget, a serrated peeler), one serrano pepper (diced), one smallish clove of garlic (minced), a handful of cilantro (chopped), the juice of half a lime (squeezed by hand), and a pinch each of salt and sugar. I mixed it all up while the corn was still hot and this mellowed the garlic and chiles a little bit.

What's the rest of that stuff? A tuna steak bought frozen at Trader Joe's, covered in southwestern spices (ancho and cayenne chile, cumin, onion powder, salt) and seared in a pan--not a nonstick pan, please. Also a wheat hamburger bun slathered with mayonnaise. And some home fries seasoned with ancho chile. In other words, dinner.
