Sunday Dinner

Today we had dinner at home. And it was so good! On the menu? Green salad with lime dressing, grill-roasted vegetables, "all natural" chicken meatballs (ala costco), and watermelon. Let me tell you how I did it.

Roasted Vegetables:

3 red potatoes, sliced very thin, 1/4 inch or less
1/2 zucchini (use more if you have it!) sliced thick, about a half inch
1/2 red pepper, sliced into long strips
1/2 green pepper, sliced into long strips
1/2 onion, sliced into 1/2 inch thick strips
1 head green garlic, sliced into 1/2 inch thick strips
1 container fresh mushrooms (the brown ones, not the white ones) sliced thick (1-2 cuts per mushroom)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 t season salt
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 t chili powder
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Mix everything together in a big bowl, and cook on the grill! I use a grill basket sprayed with cooking spray. They take awhile, the potatoes being the limiting factor. Just cook till the potatoes are tolerably cooked. They are so delicious!

Lime Salad Dressing

2 limes, juiced
1/2 cup olive oil
2 t sugar
1 t Lyle's Golden Syrup (my honey substitute)
salt and pepper to taste
1 small head green garlic, finely chopped
dash lemon juice (you could just use another lime, but this is what I did)
1 T cilantro (if you have more, use more!)

Combine everything, and serve over spinach and lettuce, garnished with feta cheese, and enjoy.
