Grill Your Entire Meal

It seems like we have been waiting a very long time for spring this year. Last night was the first time we actually ate outside. I love it when we grill (translation: when my husband grills). My pet peeve, though, is having to cook a side dish indoors when we're grilling.

So I've started accumulating ideas for grilling side dishes, even dessert! I discovered one last night when I was trying to figure out what we should have with our steak. I had some small red potatoes (two inches in diameter or less), so I covered them in foil. My husband put them on the grill before he put the steaks on - they take about 30 minutes.

We've grilled baking potatoes before, but they take so long! So this was a wonderful alternative. We had a veggie tray last night, but we often grill veggies in foil packets (tossed with Italian dressing or another sauce). Finish it off with some fresh fruit, and no cooking in the kitchen! And almost no clean up! My kind of meal. :)
