Memorial Day Cookout- The Verdict

After all of the prep work for the Memorial Day Cookout- how did everything turn out, you ask?  Well....  here are my thoughts.

We made absolutely DELICIOUS veggie kabobs.  Look at all the veggie yummies!!!

Our kabobs and tempeh before it went on the grill

Aaron (my brother-in-law) did a GREAT job of keeping the meat separate from our non-meat selves.  Compliments to the grill-master!!  Gotta love the ove glove!

Once grilled.... ohhh it all looked fabulous, no?!?!!

Next time I'll cut the tempeh into smaller pieces and marinate all of the sides.  The part that was marinated was very good- nice and smoky with a little bit of heat from the BBQ Sauce.  The parts that were not were bland, but after dipping it into the sauce it all came together very nicely.  My sister-in-law did say that my corn was the best corn that she had ever had, so that's a keeper!!!!  Oh and the veggies?  FANTASTIC.  Smoky and perfectly grilled.  Again, good job Aaron!!

I couldn't write about a cookout at my brother and sister-in-law's house without showing pictures of the cutest little darling in the world.

Happy Memorial Day!

It looks like you have a fantastic Memorial Day. I love veggie kabobs so much. I only wish I had a BBQ to make them for myself!
