Easy Grilled Vegetables


I was invited to my Aunt and Uncle's for a family BBQ this weekend and was asked to bring a side dish.  I brought my Sesame Noodles and some beautiful summer vegetables to grill.  I love any vegetable that gets grilled because grilling adds so much flavor.  The eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, onion, and bell peppers were all purchased during my weekly visit to the Crystal City Farmers Market.  I brought the vegetables already sliced so they were ready to grill and easily done thanks to my Uncle.
