{Bite: Grilled Corn On The Cob 5 Different Ways}

This is exactly what happened this past weekend - I went out to walk my dog and the moment I stepped out of my apartment the air was filled with all sorts of amazing food smells. As we walked down the street we noticed that a street fair was going on and at the end of my street there stood my favorite stand - the Mexican-style grilled corn on the cob stand!
