It’s Grillin’ Time!

We broke out our grill for the first time this summer, yay.  I love grilling.  It leaves my kitchen so much more clean!  I am usually a talapia girl but the other day we bought some fresh Cod so we decided to grill it, which I have never done before.  Well it turned out great and I will probably be making this again next week!

spinach – grape tomatoes – blueberries – zucchini – pecans

I especially love fresh fruit and veggies on salads in the summer time.  It is a quick, easy, and healthy side for any meal.  We enjoyed ours with a Cherry Balsamic Vinaigrette

A great Meal overall!
