Grilled Corn with Herbed Butter – Fresh corn on the cob seasoned with garlic-butter and oregano.
You know, this past week I realized that I am terrible at using Social Media. Ter.rible! Twitter, in particular. I see people going on and on, talking about their day on Twitter, and I’m like, um…what?
In real life, that is, the life I have with you when we are face to face, I’m a talker. I talk. A lot. My husband talks a lot, as well, and we are always talking over each other. In the end, we have no idea what the other said. You should see our conversations. It’s comical, to say the least.
I only bring up this Twitter issue because the other day, while I was in a meeting with this Grilled Corn with Herbed Butter, I sat in front of my computer, watching the scroll on Twitter, and not knowing what to say. At all. That’s SO weird for me. I always, ALWAYS have something to say. Many times I have to tell myself to shut up. Seriously. I have to remind myself to stay calm and shut my trap.
This is not to say that I am any better on the other Social Network – Facebook. I hear birds chirping. And flies buzzing.
But, Instagram? I can do Instagram! I love that place! I get to see what most of you look like, and, for many of you, I can finally put a face to your lovely blog. I can also share a bit of me and my family with the rest of you.
Pinterest is another fave. I pin a lot. If I’m on your blog, I’m pinning. If it’s past midnight, I am pinning. If I’m bored watching Sesame Street, I’m pinning. You get the idea.
I also like Google+!
But, those other two! Ugh… I’ll work on it.
Maybe I should tell you a thing or two about this corn, ha? Well, it’s corn on the cob that I wrapped in foil together with whipped garlic-oregano butter. I threw the corn on the grill and 30 minutes later I sprinkled some goat cheese on top and inhaled ’em during a staring contest with Twitter. The end. 😀

I just grilled corn this past weekend. I put chili powder on it and wrapped 1 (one) slice of bacon around it. Cooked for 25 minutes (only turning once) and it was fantastic. I heated the remaining cob up the next day in the toaster oven and it great too. I got the recipe from one of the cooking website that I subscribe to. This will be my new way to cook corn. Loved it!!!!!
This looks really good. I had grilled corn in Belize that had a coarse salt and yummy spices added. I wish I knew what spices they used. What other spices would you suggest with coarse salt and butter?
I think garlic powder or just fresh ground pepper would be great! Cumin is also a good choice, though too strong for me, and chili powder if you like a bit of spice. 🙂
Yum! Herbs and goat cheese are a must, of course. As for social media, I agree. It’s hard to know what to say, so I just say the bare minimum. I should probably work on that as well. Google plus and facebook I don’t really bother with anymore since twitter is easier for me.
I never grill corn. I always worry it won’t cook & I never have enough patience to slather it with herb butter so we eat it plain. By the look of this I am missing on both counts.
I am totally being a corn hog this season… and eating as much of it as I can. I love your butter… just need it to be slathered on and dripping down my arm. 😛
Love corn this time of year! I love Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest, but I don’t understand Google + and I don’t like Facebook at all.
Glad to see I’m not the only who isn’t a Twitter fan. If you want to have conversation, pick up the phone and call. 🙂 It’s so hard keeping up with all of the SM that I’ve finally had to narrow it down to just 3, with posting activity in 2. UGH! Anyway, I love corn fixed this way! I just want to grab an ear off the plate and start eating! Happy Fourth!
I’m also having trouble with participating in all the social media. I just don’t want my kids to see me using iPhone all the time when I’m around them (or else I cannot tell them NO IPHONE!)…so Twitter is impossible. I can’t keep following the feed. How do people use it?! Anyway that’s a mystery to me. Does everyone keep checking in? Pinterest and IG are fun! Both picture driven so it’s fun to go through. I just wish that I have more time so that I can be more “social”. Love your grilled corn!
I laughed my way through this post…I am the same way with twitter and Facebook! I actually tweet things I think are funny…stare at it for 30 seconds, then delete!
I love grilled corn! Yours looks so delicious and that sprinkle of goat cheese sounds so good! I need to put this on my 4th of July party menu!
