Grilled Dinner

This summer the fruits and vegetables have been so great around here!

The blueberries are huge, juicy and plump, the watermelon full of flavor and not living up to their name of water. Bleck! And don't even get me started on the corn... this is some of the best corn on the cob I've eaten in my life!

Perhaps because of their quality, and all of the produce we're receiving from Johnny's mom's garden, I keep finding myself in a frenzy of needing to use it up before it goes to waste!

The fridge had half of a head of cauliflower, a big zucchini, and two ears of corn that were just itching to be cooked. I immediately thought to grill it all because our weather has also been beautiful.

To accompany the grilled veggies, I picked another grill-friendly food - Brats from the freezer! Which called for onions and peppers!

I chunked up all the vegetables (cauliflower, zucchini, onions, and peppers) and marinated them in Newman's Own Caesar dressing. The corn I just soaked in water before throwing it on the grill.

A quick 30 minutes for the brats, and about 10-15 minutes for the veggies and dinner was served. Added bonus of no dishes to clean, just a grill grate to wipe down!
