In my efforts to take my girls to the the Ravens training camp this year, I was shocked to learn all of the bouncing around the team is doing. What happened to the days of a training camp being held in one location? The Ravens will be training at the Under Armour Performance Center in Owings Mills, Maryland,  Stevenson University, Navy-Marine Corps Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland, and M&T Stadium which is downtown Baltimore. Because the Under Armour Performance Center and Mustang Stadium at Stevenson University have limited seating, fans must enter a “lottery” to win tickets. A lottery…really!!  How I miss the days when the Ravens trained at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland. Because I show signs of ADD, I had a difficult time attending to the details of schedule. On site, off site, enter lottery here, you can tailgate, you can’t tailgate…lots of details. A Ravens’ fan better be on top of this calendar. After thoroughly reviewing the dates, I narrowed things down. I’m hoping the girls and I can head to Annapolis this coming Sunday for a day of family fun.

Grilled corn guacamole 004

1. Cut corn tortillas into strips and fry in large skillet over medium heat. Drain on paper towels and season with salt while hot.

2. Begin guacamole by grilling the corn. Grill until the kernels start to brown.

3. Allow corn to cool and cut off kernels using a sharp knife or a corn cutter.

4. Cut avocados in half, remove pit, and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Smash with a fork.

5. Add onion, jalapenos, tomatoes, garlic, and cilantro. Mix, Add cumin and cayenne and then salt. Salt is key. Start with a little and to from there. Keep tasting. Once it’s season to your desire, add the lime juice.
