Happy 4th OF July!! Make some Grilled Corn on the Cob!!

I love Grilled Corn on the Cob!! There is just something wonderful about the taste, here is a recipe that includes an extra twist by adding Jalapeno pepper to spice it up. I prefer butter, or honey butter [just whip up a few drops of honey with some butter] or try adding a little cinnamon with your butter ...yummy chose...

Yummy Tomato Slices

Here is a great recipe - it's easy and healthy.  

This recipe was found on Chatty Crone's blog. I thought it looked so good I wanted to go to my kitchen and make them....Cut your tomatoes in half crosswise, season with salt and pepper. In a small frying pan add crushed garlic, olive oil and fresh thyme, cook til golden, take off the heat and add in grated parmesan cheese. Place your tomato halves cut side down on and oiled grill until you get grill marks, then turn them over with tongs and spoon the garlic cheese mixture on top and continue cooking. (Pinterest)
