Memorial Day Fun!

I don't know about you all, but I'm super excited to have a three day weekend and I have a ton of things planned.  First off, my sister is getting married on Sunday!  Yeah! We are also having a huge family cookout since we'll all be together for the wedding, and I think there is nothing more fun than getting together with family and friends in the summer at a picnic or barbecue.   So for today's post, I wanted to share with you all my idea of the perfect ensemble for any outdoor activity you may be participating in this weekend.

This is what I want my cookout to look like.  Have you ever seen a more organized table?

This is one side I will be making!
Ingredients
  • 4 ears fresh corn on the cob, husks removed
  • 1/4 cup Crisco vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 small red pepper, finely chopped (about 1/3 cups)
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves or parsley
Instructions
  1. Rub the corn with 2 tablespoons oil. Beat the remaining oil, lime juice, maple syrup and black pepper in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.
  2. Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Grill the corn for 5 minutes or until lightly browned on all sides. Remove the corn from the grill. Cut the corn kernels from the cob with a sharp knife.
  3. Stir the corn, red pepper, green onions and cilantro in a medium bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat.
So what will you be doing this weekend?
This was my first post for My Friday's Fancies and I'm so excited to be joining my friends from Her Late Night Cravings as well as Long Distance Loving for this fun series!
