Despite yesterday being the first day of fall, it was absolutely gorgeous. Honestly, I wish the weather could stay this amazing for more than a couple of weeks. Cool mornings, a light breeze, afternoons filled with sunshine. Shorts are appropriate but so are jeans. Jackets or sweatshirts easily solve your “chilled” dilemmas. Yes, I could get used to this weather.
I had all intentions of making a “fall-inspired” dinner but the weather is to blame for wanting to fire up the grill. Yesterday we cleaned up the garden (aka – tore down some of the summer plants) and we ended up with one big haul of produce.
The tomatoes and mini purple bell peppers had no chance. They were destined for my plate last night. Along with the grilled tomatoes and peppers, we had honey-lime chicken kebabs.
The chicken was cut into bite size pieces and then tossed with lime zest, garlic, chili powder and salt. After being grilled to perfection, they were drizzled with a light honey-lime mixture.
I just want to point out that the peppers started out purple and turned vibrant green when grilled.
Obviously I’m holding tight to summer for as long as I can.
