It was a nice long weekend, wasn't it?

We got loads of painting done.  WooHoo!!!

We had some down time too.  Double WooHoo!!!

Strolled around a town called Silverton, Oregon. 
Tons of Antique stores to explore! 

Spent some time with friends BBQing.  YUMMY! 

Meet my darling, amazing, fun friend, Tina. She's a kick in the pants!
She makes me smile nonstop. She has the greatest sense of humor.
I'm trying to convince her to collaberate with me here on this blog.
Hope she decides to give it a go...you'd adore her!

Enjoyed some perfectly seasoned and BBQ'd flank steak, as well as some Mexican Grilled Corn and Pesto Artichoke Pasta Salad.  Double YUMMY!

How cute is she!?  And that flank steak was pure perfection. 
Some credit to her hubby Tony, of course, for manning the grill!

Scott and I first had a version of this corn at a La Fortuna Mexican Fiesta that's put on a couple of times a year here in our town.  After being won over by the flavorful grilled corn, I decided to give it a go!  It was finger licking good!  (Although I would soak the skewers in water if I had it to do all over again.  I think the "Grill Masters" have slightly burnt fingers from turning the corn cobs with the skewers!)

Here is the recipe I used for the Mexican Grilled Corn.  It's really quite easy and adds tons of pizzaz to corn on the cob. 

10 corn on the cobs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 fresh limes
fresh grated parmesan cheese
chili powder

Mix together Mayo, Sour Cream and fresh chopped cilantro.  Set aside in refrigerator.
Push skewers into corn cobs (soak skewers first to prevent burning).
Cook the corn, uncovered on grill at medium to medium-high heat, turning until cooked evenly.
Coat corn with with mayo mixture (we used a pastry brush to spread on).
Spritz each corn cob with a bit of lime juice.
Roll in grated parmesan to coat (I put parmesan on a paper plate for this step).
Sprinkle with chili powder to taste (personally I think the more the better!)
Garnish with lime quarters.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your projects!
