After spending a few hours outside and getting the lawn furniture out of the shed (not cleaned or set up yet, but it's a start), we decided tonight would be the perfect night to fire up the grill. Matt's the grillmaster of the family, so he worked on dinner while I folded laundry; fair trade-off. On the menu: Shish kabobs and grilled potatoes.
On the kabobs:
- Cajun tuna steaks (I picked these up at the grocery store already seasoned so we just had to cut them up. They were really good, but a little too spicy for my liking).
- Zucchini rounds
- Green peppers
- Fresh pineapple
To make the potatoes, he just microwaved them for a few minutes to soften them up, then cut them into slices, brushed them with a little olive oil and put them on the grill to finish cooking. They were so.amazingly.good.
I always pull the goods off the skewer and make a big pile before digging in, but as I was doing that tonight I wondered if anyone actually eats right off the kabob skewers? Seems like it would be a pain to me, but maybe that's supposed to be part of the fun. Thoughts?
Is there anything more delicious than grilled pineapple? I think not.
We dipped our veggies and potatoes in a new barbecue sauce we picked up the other day to try. I'm usually a loyal fan of Sweet Baby Ray's, but this stuff was awesome. Loved it!
And now it's time to scrounge up something sweet.
