Amazinggggg day in Chicagoland! Naturally, it was a rest day, which is really making me think that I need to stop running because all my rest days lead to gorgeous spring weather. Since I didn't have running (or work!) to occupy my time, I decided to take advantage of the fact that today was PERFECT for grilling. I say that like I grill all the time, which, let me tell you, is far from the truth. I had to ask my mom to start the grill because I have no clue how. Oops? When I was little, I would get really excited when my dad would let me flip burgers on the grill. He wouldn't let me add the cheese because I was still too young (and too short) to get that close to the grill, but with the long-armed-flipper-thing, I could flip the burgers all I wanted.
I was an easy-to-entertain child.
After flipping through some cooking magazines, I found this Grilled Chicken with Mango-Pineapple Salsa in Cooking Light. Chicken? Pineapple? Anything that resembles salsa? I'm in.
Paired with brown rice and grilled zucchini (brushed with olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper, yum!), we were all set for a fantastic meal. And since pictures are worth a thousand words:
Classic Susan pose while grilling! If only the trees had some leaves...
Zucchini and chicken on the grill! My food photography skills are lacking.
Zucchini with some grill lines. I wasn't sure whether I liked the round slices or long slices better, so I made both!
