BBQ Chicken and Grilled Veggie Revelation

My feelings about BBQ chicken could have really been summed up as “meh.”  Until now.  It was BK’s turn to pick dinner and BBQ chicken it was.  I faithfully basted the little guys with some BBQ sauce and let them sit for a few hours.  Then we grilled.

Well, I don’t even know what to say.  They were crispy and carmelized and BK cooked them just perfectly.  Its been two days and I can’t stop thinking about that amazing BBQ chicken…

Who knew?

Same with the vegetables.  I don’t dislike veggies, but I don’t gobble them up.  But zucchini, onions, potatoes, asparagus or peppers brushed with a little olive oil and sprinkled with some coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, then grilled so they have a bit of char on them?  So good.  I know this probably falls into the “how were you so completely unaware of this” camp, but I just love them.  And lucky for me, BK hates onions and zucchini, so I get them all to myself.  I gobbled them up.  Just like a turkey.  Gobble gobble.

P.S.  In case you were wondering, that first home-grown zucchini tasted amazing.  Like freshness and butter and hard, hard work battling amazon plants and bugs.
