Vegetables on the Grill & Grill of Your Dreams

Temperatures are hitting record highs around the country and electric bills are soaring. During the summer I try to use my oven as little as possible. Baking, especially in the afternoon early evening makes the house so hot!

This year I’ve been trying to use my grill as much as possible. I’ve avoided the grill in the past because I always thought only meat went on the grill, and meat for a family of nine can get expensive! I have found that you can buy cheaper cuts of meat and marinate them for several hours for a better taste. My father-in-law taught me to prick steak with a fork before marinating and that also gives the meat a better flavor.

But, you don’t have to just grill meat! Vegetables taste great on the grill.

Here are a few of my successful grilling attempts.

    My suggestion would be to get a Deni Meat Tenderizer (48 blade). They run about $20 and are awesome. You can make the toughest meat tender and is super easy.
