Grilled Thighs -n- Tails with Summer Squash and Old Bay Corn on the Cob

bbq thighs and lobster tails

Napoleon Dynamite! Yep, my husband and daughters boyfriend entertained us by doing Napoleons dance while I was trying to grill dinner. Let me just tell you that this dinner pairs very well with Corona Light with lime. One of the things I love most about summers in Maryland is the finest fresh produce and sweet corn on the cob from the Eastern Shore. When I stopped at our local produce stand, Peninsula Farms, I took one look around and knew I was pairing BBQ chicken thighs and lobster tails with fresh corn on the cob slathered in butter and sprinkled with Old Bay Seasoning and grilled summer squash with a balsamic vinegar drizzle. Serve your family a dinner made with love and see if you don’t get a side-show, too.
