Breakin’ Out the Grill

Good news! The rain has finally decided to let up and the lovely spring sun is shining in Orlando again.

Good weather = Grilling!

Meat Man

For the first time in 2010, we fired up the grill to make tonight’s dinner… and by “we” I mean Ryan. The grill intimidates me. 😉

Do you grill or leave the grilling duties up to someone else?

While Ryan tended to the grill, I prepped our sides and roasted fresh zucchini and cauliflower in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, flippin’ the veggies halfway through.

Within 25 minutes we had a tasty dinner of BBQ grilled chicken breasts with roasted veggies. It felt like a summer meal!

Guess what little treat I picked up at the grocery store yesterday?

Cadbury Eggs

Hooray for Cadbury mini eggs!

Great dessert… Just great. 😀

Meat Man

Ryan does all the grillin’ in this household and I’ve dubbed him my meat man. He know exactly how I like my chicken cooked (slightly burnt) and he even entertains Sadie in the backyard while keeping a watchful eye over the meat. Quite the multitasker!

He put his grilling expertise to work today when he grilled up BBQ chicken and a red pepper for dinner.

While he was busy outside, I packed our lunches and steamed some broccoli and cauliflower to eat with the grilled goodies.

Everything was ready around the same time andI fixed myself a colorful plate.

I was amazed at the sweetness I tasted in the grilled red peppers. They were slightly charred and very flavorful.

We have a lot of chicken leftover and it will be featured again in tomorrow’s lunch, which is fine by me because I love BBQ chicken!

Question: What’s your favorite veggie on the grill?
