We made chicken kabobs marinated in a yogurt sauce. I overcooked the chicken but the vegetables turned out well.image

Battle of the Limes

I had some Bud Light Lime last night. It was hot out and the light lime taste was nice. I’ve been trying Moosehead Light Lime recently and when I compare the two, I like the Moosehead more. Moosehead has a stronger lime taste and I’m a fan of stronger flavors. Maybe its all in my head. Maybe its because I think Canadian beer is generally superior to American beer. Maybe I’m biased against Anheuser-Busch InBev products (I am). Whatever the reason, Moosehead Light Lime is the winner in my book.

I read about the new Yummly meta-food-website search engine over at TechCrunch tonight. It looks promising. One of things I dislike about a lot of the major food sites is the lack of robust search filtering. Yummly has the most search options I’ve seen in awhile. I’m going to try this site out next time I need a recipe that I don’t have in a cookbook.

Grilled Corn with Mint and Hot Chili Pepper Butter

If I ever open a BBQ joint, this is definitely going to be on the menu as a side.

  • Grilled corn on the cob (grill it with the husks on until they turn black)
  • Butter
  • Mint (spearmint works well) cut up finely
  • Tiny red hot chili peppers diced finely
  • Salt and pepper

Heat the butter gently in a microwave or stove top, add the mint and chili peppers to taste and stir. Put the butter on the corn and you are ready to go. Delicious!
