Grilled Pork Chops with Grilled Chile Lime Corn

Grilled Pork Chops are a summer staple at our house so is grilled corn. We look forward to when we get to have fresh corn on the cob during summer and our favorite way to prepare them is to grill and season with chile lime salt and butter. I also got to try out Grill Daddy’s new grill cleaning tool which cleans the grill with steam. Thank you to Grill Daddy for sending me one to review.

I find this world becoming smaller and smaller the older I get. I was looking through my emails and saw a PR pitch from a gal I knew from back in my fitness competing days. I had forgotten she was in PR so it was a nice surprise to see the email from her. Her email was about the Grill Daddy steam cleaning grill brush, and since we grill a ton, I figured why not try it out and help share about the product she is representing? I am all about helping out friends with their business endeavors when I can.

Spirulina is high in protein, a complete protein containing all the amino acids, rich in iron and vitamin A and boasts to have four times the antioxidants of blueberries. Plus it turns your drinks and food a nifty shade of blue-green a color most often achieved by food coloring. I prefer the natural kind, the kind that I can pretend to be a mermaid while drinking or eating it. Or something like that.
