Joe got a charcoal grill a few weeks ago and I think it's safe to say this is where the majority of our food is coming from! Here is what I ate tonight (that's your broccoli Dad!)
After spending about an hour reading the grilling issue of Every Day with Rachel Ray I decided to throw together my own vegetable marinade. Here's the recipe- if you can call it that- Jackson hodge-podge might be a little more accurate...
Now for the marinade:
Splash of Kalameta Olive juice
A few splashes of Worcestershire Sauce
2 teaspoons of minced garlic
1 teaspoon of ground mustard
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon of garlic salt
2 teaspoons of sesame seeds
I mixed everything together in a gallon freezer bag and threw it in the fridge for about 45 minutes. Joe cooked it in a grill wok for about 15 minutes. The result kind of reminded me of the something you would have at a HuHot or Mongos. Super flavorful and tasty!
If you're not into a completely vegetarian meal... here is something else you can try. Joe made these a few nights ago with all the vegetables I mentioned above + pineapple...
He added small pieces of round steak marinaded overnight with this...
My favorite part was the pineapple chunks- super juicy and fresh!
It's so nice cooking supper together every night in the summer! It makes me realize just how many late nights I worked this past academic year. This coming year should have definite improvements in that arena. Only two more weeks until I start my new job in Student Affairs- woot!

Some might ask why I blog. As another blogger put it, “our blog is a unique blend of the practical and theoretical, earthly and spiritual, meaningful and inconsequential." With that said, I invite you to be a part of my life through my blog.
