Favorite Thing #138 - Grilling Out

With the warm weather comes grilling season. There are two reasons why grilling out is Favorite Thing #138 - 1) I don't have to cook (my hubby takes care of all the grilling) and 2) I eat much healthier. I got my hubby a very nice grill as my wedding gift to him so he loves using it and I will grill all spring/summer and into the fall. I've written about some of my favorite grilling things in the past (Favorite Thing #61 and Beer Can Chicken). I thought I would share a great marinade recipe (Thanks April) that can be used for almost anything! We mainly use it for chicken and vegetables. It's great for making kebabs.

⅔ cup olive oil
¼ cup red wine vinegar
5 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp. salt
lots of fresh pepper
½ tsp. oregano
½ tsp. thyme
½ tsp. basil
pinch of rosemary

Mix all ingredients together. Marinade should sit with protein or vegetables for at least two hours or as long as overnight.

I must admit I haven't made Favorite Thing #38 in long time. It's tough on a weeknight to do a side dish that takes more than two steps. So instead I make broil broccoli on a cookie sheet. I toss the broccoli in olive oil, salt, pepper, onion salt, and garlic and then I put it on a cookie sheet in the oven at 425 - 450 until the its gets crispy. It's super yummy. Thanks again to my sister-in-law April for another great recipe.

Grilling has to be favorite thing of mine too. As soon as it gets warm enough it will become the primary way I cook all summer long!
