Tomorrow evening we are headed to a baseball game with our friends. It will be Penelope's first game and she is pretty excited. Mostly about eating popcorn and cotton candy. We are headed to Angels stadium in LA. This will be my second game, the first one was in Dallas when I saw the Texas Rangers. Should be a good 'ol time.

Mexicorn Pasta Salad

The weekend of my birthday we went over to my parents house and had a party celebrating not only my birthday but also my stepdads and my twin nieces. We grilled up some ribs, steak and hotdogs and ate some sides including this Mexicorn Pasta Salad I made that everyone loved.

Mexicorn Pasta Salad

1 lb. cooked Rotini pasta ( I used Dreamfields low carb pasta)
3 cups of roasted corn kernels. You can first roast the corn ears over the grill with a little olive oil and then scrape the kernels off. 3 to 4 corn ears should produce 3 cups of kernels.
Cotija cheese
Handful of chopped cilantro
About 4 green onions chopped
Lime Juice
Salt & pepper to taste

Mix everything together and enjoy. You can use as much mayo and cotija as you like. Same goes with the Tajin and lime juice. Tajin can usually be purchased in the Hispanic aisle at your local supermarket.

It is a combination of chilies, lime and salt and is used on everything from fruit to beverages.

This Mexicorn Pasta Salad is made like you would make a Mexican street corn with the addition of pasta.

Yesterday I took my stepdad out to the casino for his birthday. We ate at the buffet and I did pretty good sticking to my "diet". That was the only thing I ate all day but it was a pretty big meal. ;)
