Impromptu BBQ

Just attended my first mini-cookout of the season! Yesssss! You know what this means? It means that warm weather and warm spirits are officially here.

No matter that there’s been rather chilly weather ’round Atlanta (for late-April); a cookout means that we’re ready to whip out the marinades, the charcoal, the skewers, the buffets of meat and veggies and seafood… and slap it all on the barbie! All washed down with a cold beer. Hell yes.

The corn came with its own bar of condiments. Each person slathered the whole ear of corn onto a brick of butter and then seasoned it to taste with salt, lemon pepper, red pepper flakes, or whatever else struck their fancy. Delish.

I had to include this pic because my face is ridiculous; that first, juicy, smoking bite of corn burst in my mouth like flavor crystals. I was struck speechless and dumbfounded!
