I hope that everyone enjoyed a fun and safe holiday weekend.
Good times over here in Southern California...
plenty of sunshine to go around and a
plethora of scrumptious food too!
Crunch Burgers inspired here but kicked up a notch with
Miss Vickies Jalapeno chips...delicious!
Then for me...the new "go to" side dish is the
Grilled Corn with Cilantro and Sesame.
I thought warm butter dripping down my chin was heaven...
this is heaven on steroids!
The warm corn releases the sesame oil in a way that I've never experienced before.
Rich and buttery with a certain warmth to the
flavor profile that is hard to describe.
The cilantro is fresh and bright, the jalapeno lending just a hint of heat and then
the toasted sesame seeds sprinkled over top add a surprising texture
that is most welcoming.
I think I've found my new favorite summer food!
And then of course root beer floats...need I say more.
Bubbling soda and melting ice cream that create bubbles of frosty goodness.
I hope your Holiday weekend was overflowing with all things
delicious and summery!
