Grilled Corn with Roasted Garlic and Herb Butter

We have all been so busy lately, it has been difficult to have some good 3Bs time. A few weeks ago we finally were about to plan a full day relaxing in the sun and grilling at Emily's new place. Of course I won't up that morning with one of the worst migraines I've ever had! By noon I felt good enough to get to Em's for the afternoon.
My 3Bs helped me keep my mind off the pain. 
 Me being the sunscreen Queen!

I felt like we had escaped to a resort at Em's new place. Isn't it gorg!
 Our grilling was also successful. Remember last year's grilling adventure??
 We still needed 2 blondes to turn it on...

I LOVED this corn recipe! That's all...

Grilled Corn with Roasted Garlic and Herb Butter
2 bulbs of garlic
2 tsp olive oil
zest of 1 lemon
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup cilantro
1/4 cup tarragon
salt and pepper
3 ears of corn in the husks
Preheat oven to 400. Cut the tops of of the garlic. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap in a packet of foil and roast for 40 minutes.
Zest lemon.
Chop herbs.
Squeeze garlic from paper shell. Mix into a bowl with butter, herbs and lemon zest. 
Season with salt and pepper.
Pull husks back from corn and remove the silks. Rub with the butter.
Fold the husks back over the corn and tie the tips with string. We didn't have any string, so we used dental floss...haha, it worked for a minute and then burned away.

Grill for 15 minutes. (PS I just read the recipe and it said to wrap the corn in foil then put them on the grill, oops! I blame my migraine!) So if you do wrap it in foil, grill for 15 minutes in foil, then remove foil and place on the grill turning until husks are charred, about 5 minutes.
Or do it this way and it will be really charred. But still really yummy!

Remove husks and serve!
The Verde Fajitas we grilled will be on the next blog!
