Seriously. How can someone go this long in life and not catch on to this? I don't even know who to blame for my ignorance. Don't get me wrong, we eat a lot of vegetables. But, this whole grilling vegetables is new territory. Hubby got this great gift for his birthday. Its a vegetable or fish grilling dod-dad thing. We had asparagus and summer squash on hand so that's what got grilled.
Seriously, I can't believe this is the first time we've grilled vegetables. The asparagus tasted like popcorn. Bee willingly ate all of hers. The squash tasted like yellow tomatoes. Lou and I fought over the last ones. I ate a lot of them before everyone even made it to the table. Shhhh. We just added a little olive oil and a shake of salt before grilling. Delish.
We did note a problem with the grilling thing. The handle got hot. The wooden part was fine, but good grief, the metal running down the sides got hot. I have a solution on the way.
Yum- made another batch of granola bars. Added walnuts and almonds this time. Used homemade peanut butter instead of store bought. I think we liked them better than last time.
Does anyone have vegetable grilling ideas or tips? I'm trying zucchini and green beans tomorrow. What's your favorite?
