Corny...


Sorry about the post title. Had to. :)

First off, I wanted to share a yummy recipe. Next, at the end of this post, I wanted to share my weekend with you all. It was a fun one for us! I realized I had taken some random pics throughout the weekend too, so I'll include those at the end.

So, the recipe...

This is such a simple grill recipe. We tried this out for the first time last week, and I can't wait to cook it again! It is so very good, and takes just a few minutes- prep-time and all!

Can you guess what it is from the pic (or the stupid post title)??


- Grilled Corn-on-the-Cob -

I wanted to try this out, and found this recipe that I used here while searching.

Ingredients:

- corn on the cob (fresh)
- olive oil
-salt/pepper/other seasonings of preference
- aluminum foil
- butter to serve

First, shuck the corn & remove all silk. Rinse. Soak the corn in cold water for about 20 minutes. (This is totally optional, but recommended to moisten the corn before grilling.)
After soaking, pat dry with a paper towel.

Take each ear of corn (however many you need), and place each separately on a small sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle (or brush) with olive oil, sprinkle salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you would like.
I used just a little seasoning salt.

Make sure cob is evenly coated & simply wrap with foil all around, twisting it around on the ends to hold it. (Like first picture above.)

Grill for 15 minutes... I believe the recipe specifies medium temp./350 degrees- I don't know, because my sweetie takes care of that. :)

You only rotate the corn once about halfway through the cooking time. Remove from grill (be careful, and use tongs or an oven mitt), unwrap (also be careful here, because a lot of steam & heat escapes)... then dig in & die because it tastes so good.




And, just FYI, it goes GREAT with my sweetie's grilled burgers!


I hope you try this out, because it is wonderful!

Now, on to my weekend...

This weekend was absolutely wonderful! We had a "composer weekend" at our church, and a famous composer of many songs we have sung as a choir was here for the weekend. It was great getting to know Mary McDonald & witnessing her talents firsthand. We performed some of the most beautiful music this side of Heaven, and I loved every minute of it. I've said this so many times before, but I am so blessed to be a part of our awesome church choir.

Friday night, me & my sweetie had a movie night. We've done that the past two Friday nights, and I'm loving it. And what movie night isn't complete without buttery popcorn?...


We headed to Birmingham on Saturday and had a great day of shopping & eating. Zach had to drop his Land Rover off at the dealership & they provided us with a rental car for the day. What do ya' know- a '12 Chev. Tahoe- the vehicle I would LOVE to have. It may have been a good thing though, because I ended up not really liking that particular one. There was a lot of wind noise. I'm hoping that was just on that particular Tahoe, beacause I still really love the vehicle. It's not like I'll be getting one tomorrow anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

On Saturday afternoon, I slid in choir rehearsal and enjoyed that & our choir dinner afterwards. We also had rehearsal Sunday afternoon, and then our concert was Sunday night.

Sunday afternoon, I was able to squeeze in some spray painting time. I had not done this in such a long time!

I started on the little bench that my granddad had out in the shop. I finally figured out what I'm going to do with this little beauty.
I'll give a little sneak peek, but keep in mind,
it's nowhere near complete...



I made two (yes, two) trips to Hobby Lobby in the past three days to get materials for all kinds of projects I have lined up. (And can I just add that I'm STILL using my gift card from Christmas! Go me!!) I also painted a little vanity seat and got fabric to recover it. I'm excited!!

I hope you all had a great weekend like we did! Can't wait to post (soon) on the projects I have in the works!
