I’m so out of it this week.
I’m really thankful it’s Friday… Friyay… because this week felt like it was dragging and dragging.
I have a crazy deadline next Wednesday so my hours have been all over the place with going in early and staying late. OMG so tired!
It’s great to get overtime especially since I love the project but I’m dragging now that it’s Friday. Normally I would just stay at work the weekend to get stuff done without distractions but I’m heading home this weekend to see my dad, sister, and 3 nephews as they all celebrate a birthday between the 22nd and 31st. I’m really looking forward to the visit, as well as my plumped up paycheck. Gotta stay positive.
To go along with the crazy work hours, is my crazy eating schedule. I’m just not as hungry as I normally am, when I normally am. So on Wednesday I had a big breakfast burrito early on, then didn’t drag myself out of the office to eat lunch until after 2pm and yesterday I ate breakfast at 11am and lunch until after 2 again.
Well, when I planned on making this BBQ Bacon Wrapped Corn for dinner I just magically became super hungry. Imagine that. Maybe it has to do with the sweetness from the BBQ sauce, the smoky aromas from the bacon, and the fresh summertime corn. YES!!!!!!
As part of my series on food celebrating NASCAR races, I made this in honor of this weekend’s upcoming race in Tennessee.
I immediately thought that something grilled and covered in BBQ sauce would hit the spot. Plus, we’re deep in the summer now, so any reason to fire up the grill is a good reason to me.
I figured that BBQ Bacon Wrapped Corn would be a great way to change up your typical side dish for something fun and extra meaty. Plus, the BBQ sauce on the corn adds so much flavor as it cooks into the corn.
Be sure to give this BBQ Bacon Wrapped Corn a try at your next BBQ. You’ll love it bite after bite.
- 4 ears of corn
- 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
- 8 slices of sliced bacon, often low-sodium bacon is thinly sliced.
- Clean the 4 ears of corn from the husks and silks.
- Brush some BBQ sauce on each ear of corn.
- Starting at the base of the corn, begin to wrap it with a slice of bacon. Continue around with another slice of bacon, evenly wrapping until you reach the end.
- Wrap each ear of corn in a piece of aluminum foil.
- Grill for 25-30 minutes over high heat. Carefully check on the corn by unwrapping part of the aluminum foil to check to see if the bacon is done cooking.
