don't worry, there aren't any jokes here

Another great thing about spring is grilling and eating outside. We got this grill basket (at Lowe's, I think) last fall, and only just tried it out. We usually do shish ke-bobs, but this came together a lot easier. The basket has a lid, so you can flip it half way through - although I'm sure it was made for burgers, so some of our veggies slipped. We got the hang of it though, and put the rack from my broiling pan on the grill to catch any loose veggies.

We like mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, red onion, green pepper, small potatoes, zuchinni and squash. Brush them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic and grill on low for 20 minutes, flipping half way through. I'm trying to get John to try some more exciting seasonings with me, but he's afraid it will just ruin it. Hmm... any good ideas?

a really easy marinade for veegies on the grill is Italian dressing. Just pick your favorite one and either brush or pour it on the veggies

Oh boy, try this:
marinate all of the veggies in balsamic vinegar, a couple of smashed garlic cloves and some mustard (few squirts) for a few hours or as long as you can (I use a large ziploc). Then after grilling, crumble real goat cheese onto veggies and stir. I don't usually like real goat cheese but it's delicious in this recipe. The cheese will melt all over and it is heaven!! It's our favorite summertime veggie recipe.:)
