Floaty Crunchy Goodness

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!

o my mouth started watering looking at all this goodness. I was just thinking about what to do with some corn on the cob and that cilantro-sesame combo sounds like a really tasty and fresh take on it!

That's a menu to drool over especially for those of us with South of the Border taste-buds. I will have to try that corn-on-the- cob it looks too delicious for words.

BTW – Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog sometimes all we need are a few understanding words from a kind hearted friend to help get us across a bumpy road. :)
