I'll have some days like these...where there's not much to do - but that means this weekend is going to be jam packed!!
Tomorrow I plan on making cookies, gathering more berries from the woods, prepping vegetables to grill for a BBQ (some from our garden with fresh herbs), and getting stuff for the chicken brooder!!
Sunday will be full of making and canning preserves and putting finishing touches on the brooder!
Grilled Vegetable Recipe:
Any variety of vegetables that you like, sliced into 1/4 inch slices (I typically use zucchini, squash, onions, tomatoes, and peppers - tomorrow I'm just going to use 4 different peppers and onions, and maybe potatoes)
Herbs (Any variety of fresh herbs that you like, I use Basil, Oregano, Thyme), rough chopped
Garlic, minced or pressed
2 TBS olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
*Grill basket* - I got mine at Pamperedchef.com
1.) Wisk Herbs, Garlic, Olive Oil, and Salt and Pepper.
2.) Place all vegetables into a ziplock bag.
3.) Pour olive oil mixture over vegetables, seal bag and shake!
4.) Grill in grill basket for about 10 min - stir a few times
**I take this to any BBQ I go to - it's so easy and for the most part, you don't have to worry about veggies falling through the basket**
**We us our grill basket all the time when camping!**
**If you don't have a grill basket, you could always skewer the marinated veggies and grill - if using wood skewers, soak them in water first so they don't burn as quickly - you will have to turn these often to get even cooking!!**
