Thanks for all the input and suggestions - I'll put something together - apparently there's going to be some grilled portobellas as I heard they go with everything!

I'd go with some grilled veggies ~ sliced zucchini, onions and bell peppers with a dab of olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss it all together and drizzle a bit of Italian dressing. The best grilled veggie salad you can serve with burgers and chicken. How about some grilled corn on the cob with a dab of butter or mayo?

You mean like this I do grilled veggies like this all the time and I guess I was hoping to do something different.

Oh, Elf, when can I come to dinner? Just the veggies and portobellos would be fine, you wouldn't have to go to too much trouble. And these days I am not eating lots.....

That's perfect! It may be old hat to you, but maybe it's something different for Barbara and James. Don't know, but possibly.

I love grilled veggies. Sometimes I put them over greens, sometimes just drizzle with dressing on their own. HTH.

GG - I put the grilled romaine on the bottom so the greens are there sort of! They are always a "winner" even if I hate to look at them over and over and over and over and over and over............

My head is still spinning with ideas...hey, I've got a couple days to decide!

Well, something else I like to do with grilling sometimes is sliced zucchini and chopped peppers sauteed on the side burner with EVOO, garlic, and fresh herbs.

Or a marinated veg salad - steam some veggies, put in an ice bath to cool, then marinate overnight in your favorite vinaigrette. Very refreshing

We'll eat them so fast you won't have to see them for too long!

Seriously, don't go to too much trouble! We're just plain ol' James and Barbara.

I know it's late idea time, but what about potatoes, carrots and onions cut up, put in foil packet with alittle oil & butter, salt & pepper, and cooked on the grill?
whatever, it will be super, and pictures will follow - or empty plate pics, anyway. Enjoy!
