144.8…Oven-Roasted Chile Butter Corn
We decided to barbecue on Thursday night. I made barbecue chicken, baked beans and corn on the cob. Instead of my normal butter and salt on the corn, I tried to fancy it up a bit. It was a huge hit!
Oven-Roasted Chile Butter Corn (Serves 8)
Recipe adapted from Better Homes and Garden, August 2014
8 ears fresh sweet corn with husks
1/2 cup butter, softened
zest and juice of 2 limes
2 tsp. chile powder
4 cloves crushed garlic
salt to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place corn on center rack. Roast 45 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine butter, lime zest and juice, chile powder, garlic and salt.
3. Cool corn until easy to handle. Remove husks and silks, spread each cob with 1 Tbsp. chile butter.
Note: I decided to cook my corn on the grill. I removed the husks and silk, spread the chile butter on each cob and wrapped in foil. I grilled them (turning often) for about 20 minutes.
Forgot to mention that a few hours before dinner, I took the kids to Swirls for some frozen yogurt. Another thing we craved in Thailand!
Breakfast yesterday morning was pineapple Chobani yogurt, Strawberry Vanilla Almond Granola and mixed berries.
After taking my daughter to camp, I went to Cardio Muscle class. It was a fabulous class. I miss my classes! My kids' camps start too late for me to take most of my favorite classes.
Lunch was a turkey sandwich, veggies and ranch dressing.
Last night we went to a company event with Joe and Alicia to the Del Mar Racetrack. We had lots of goodies to eat!
These fried green beans with wasabi dipping sauce were my favorite!
Mud pie for dessert:
Definitely a cheat meal for the week!!
Breakfast this morning was Honey Nut Cheerios with almond milk.
I spent the entire day cleaning out my daughter's room and closet. It was a disaster.
My husband picked up lunch at Karl Strauss. I had the Mediterranean salad with chicken. Nom nom!!
We are taking the kids out with some friends tonight for dinner and movie. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
