Golden Oldie Duel!

We're Dueling Again!

Darlene sent us (Dazzlers) a cutie, cute kit.

Here's what I made with it.
Just look at that lovely couple!
Do you see their liver spots?! Hahahaha I couldn't resist!!!

These are the details to the kit she sent:
Image is from Art Impression's "Golden Oldies series, entitled BBQ Couple  (isn't it fun?!)
DP:  Karen Foster Designs: Food & Family Collage; Ants on Parade; Barbecue Bash DP: Reminisce:  Picnic Parade; Grill Master
Stickers:  Reminisce:  Backyard Bash

Other misc. embellishments are from my stash here, no particular vendor.
Please post a favorite barbecue recipe, or a salad or side dish recipe that is a hit with your family when getting together for cookouts.  Tami & I thought that it would be fun to swap some recipes with this round.
So, all I added was my white card base and the red hexagon shapes. I had fun with this fun kit.
Okay, my favorite BBQ recipe.....well, currently (I have a lot of BBQ faves!) I'm lovin' me some grilled corn!

Garlic~Cheese Corn

~ Fresh corn on the cob
~ garlic powder
~ butter
~ Parmesan cheese
~ foil

Take the husks off your corn, clean the silks off. Pull off enough foil to wrap the ears. I usually have 4 ears and pull off 4 pieces of foil. Sprinkle each ear lightly with garlic powder. Then add some dashes of Parmesan cheese along with a tsp "shmear" of butter. Roll the ears pulling edges up and place on the grill on med heat for 15 minutes. Turn them half way through cooking process.
Oh my! I will never prepare corn on the cob by boiling it again! I love this stuff. **When a grill is not available you can do the same thing in the oven....400 degrees for approx. 25 minutes.**

Thanks so much for visiting!
Please see what our other Darlings have made.....their blogs are listed in my left side bar.

Until next time...

Oh Melina what clever coloring you did of the image! Love the shading and the added age spots on these two token oldies! And you gave them gray hair...I didn't even think of that. How fun! Great hexagon punches. And I have fresh corn in the fridge...we are grilling it tonite.

Great card, Melina! Your BBQ couple are adorable and I think it's so funny you colored with liver spots...well, it's not so funny when you have them IRL! LOL!! Love those d.p. and embellishments...perfect with the BBQ/Grilling theme. I'm going to have to try your Garlic-Cheese Corn recipe. It sounds yummy! TFS!!

Okay, three words. Liver spots and shmear. Love it!

You colored the image so well. and the little details are so cute and in theme. Great job.

The corn on the cob sounds delish...will have to try that one. I too am not a fan of boiling corn!
