    Wife wanted to go light last night so I decided I would stop by the store on my way home from work and grab some fresh stuff to grill. And some cold beer of course.

    Decided to do some braised/steamed squash and zucchini, goat cheese stuffed peppers(jalapenos and a couple sweet peppers), grilled tomatoes, and baked potatoes

    Yeah not so light...right?

    Got the peppers cut and stuffed. v3.jpg

    I cut the tomatoes in half and then stuck my finger in them and got out all the pulp and seed part. It will just fall out when you grill anyways and make it mushy IMO. Drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette and put garlic powder and black pepper.

    Sliced up the squash and zucchini and threw them in a pan. Added some garlic cloves, Olive Garden Italian dressing, a few slices of fancy European butter I got on manager clearance and the grocery store, and garlic powder and black pepper.

    Washed the potatoes and coated in olive oil with salt pepper and garlic powder and into the foil

    Threw the potatoes in the oven at 400 for an hour and then fired up the grill. Put the pan of squash and zucchini with foil on top in for about a 15 minute ride. Meanwhile grilled peppers until they were nice and soft and had a nice tint to the bottom of them. Threw them in a pan to keep warm and put the tomatoes on. Grilled those for about 10 minutes until they were nice and dark on the bottom and soft.

    Pulled the tomatoes off and added a little more balsamic vinaigrette, some mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, and a little bit of basil

    Money Shot with the loaded baked potato

    Yeah for sure wasn't light was stuffed after this(beers probably didn't help). But hey for a simple meal to change it up a little every now and again it was delicious. Thanks for looking

    That meal looks delicious to me!
    We eat vegetarian most of the time.
  4. I had a meatless dinner the other night. Wasn't that hungry and just made myself a bag of microwave popcorn. I must admit yours looks much better.

    Honestly we eat meat only about 1 or 2 times per week, but we enjoy it!!!
    Then it goes into the freezer for a later date.
    I really enjoy firing up the smoker and we usually have friends over to eat most of the Q!
    Nothing better than tending to a fire & downing a few brews with friends!

    Looks like a great meal SVF. Not sure about the Coors though - that's a step or two behind PBR's.

    Point for sure.

    Easier and quicker to ask forgiveness, than seek permission.

  17. I would love to have a kegerator but I'm convinced that if I ever get one, I should not be working or have any type of deadlines in life haha
