Easy Summer Supper

Here in Michigan it has been window weather, high 70's, a nice breeze. It's been wonderful.  Yesterday I made dinner inside and our house turned into a hot box, so today I knew that I needed to find something to cook outside. Add to that to the fact we are going away for a week and I needed to rid our house of all our veggies, I came up with this meal.  It was so good.  My husband went back for seconds and even my picky eater son ate it!

On the menu:
Grilled Chicken
Grilled Zucchini
Grilled Avocado
Grilled Romaine Lettuce

Easy Grilled Chicken:
Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breast with Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Seasoning.  Grill until done, about 9-10 minutes each side depending on your grill.

Grilled Zucchini:
In the morning, cut 2 medium zucchinis in thick slices.  In a baggy place zucchini with 1/2 cup of Italian Dressing, 1 t.  of Italian Seasoning mix, and 1/2 t. garlic powder.

Place on grill and leave for 3-4 minutes.  Turn 180 degrees and grill for 3-4 more minutes.  Flip and grill until soft in the middle, about 5 minutes more depending on your grill.

Serve with ranch dressing.

Grilled Avocado:
Chill your avocado overnight in the fridge.  Right before grilling, cut in half, remove seed, and sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.

Place on grill for 5 minutes or until the flesh is lightly browned.

Grilled Romaine Lettuce:
Cut in half.  Sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.  Grill for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
