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!

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!

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!!

I never even heard of baking corn on the cob - glad you did yours on the grill!

I like to put butter, hot sauce, chopped cilantro and Parmesan cheese on my corn - sounds weird but's its awesome!
