Embrace the BBQ
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think your average woman is intimidated by the bbq. Well Ladies - put on your big girl pants - it's time to embrace the bbq. I will admit, it took me several years to muster the courage to brave the grill on my own. But now, I'm a convert. Grill cooking is easy, saves me clean-up time and effort and makes food taste ahhhmazing. Especially if you own a gas grill, bbq'ing is the perfect answer to a quick weeknight dinner. It took me about 15 minutes to prepare this meal.
I cut zucchini in 1/2, chopped bell peppers into quarters and tossed them in extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. I threw the vegetables on a heated grill along with pre-cooked turkey sausages and cooked until the vegetables were browned and tender. For extra flavor, drizzle the cooked vegetables with more olive oil, vinegar or your favorite vinaigrette.
Chop up leftover grilled vegetables and toss in a scramble the next morning. Yummy!
