(Belated) Memorial Day Grilling Post

I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

My husband, Dave, and I spend the weekend on Siesta Key soaking up the sun, swimming in the gulf, running with old friends, napping during the afternoons, eating yummy food and reading a great library book – Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris.

Here is a yummy salad I made with spinach, carrots, red pepper, avocado, and pico de gallo.  It was topped with Annie’s Goddess dressing.

Ah… relaxing by the pool!

On Memorial Day itself, Dave and I came back home to do some yard work.  No Memorial Day is complete without a BBQ though, so I threw one together.

Here are the veggie kabobs.  I made them by layering red pepper, portobello mushroom, pineapple, green pepper, cherry tomato, and red onion.  They key, in my opinion, to the best kabobs is pineapple.  YUM

The kabobs and the corn on the cob grilling up so nicely!

And dinner is served – perfectly grilled kabobs and corn on the cob with a big ole’ salad.

Dave enjoying his corn!

What did you grill on Memorial Day? What is your favorite vegan item to grill?  Do you have an amazing veggie burger recipe to share?

  2. HI Wendy,
    Would you share your black bean recipe with me? I have yet to master one that is moist, stays together and easy! I’ve never even attempted to throw them on the grill.

    I’ll check out the link and look for some other ideas. Love portobello burgers. So easy!

    Be well,
    Carolyn

    hey carolyn! black bean recipe is here: http://conradvisionquest.wordpress.com/2010/02/22/burgers-fries/

    but, like i said, not grill worthy. they would fall apart after such manhandling. i remember reading about a trick to make them firm enough for the grill, but i can’t remember what it was! i know, some help i am! the above recipe is very easy, tasty and moist…we’ve made them several times and fried them in an iron skillet.
