Grilled Pork Chops and Garlic Zucchini

Grilling and the Mediterranean Diet every Wednesday... we’re staying true over here with fresh  fruits and fresh, raw vegetables every day!

My daughter  Laura’s, best beau, Justin, (only beau – I don’t want to get into trouble here)  grilled some great center cut pork chops with Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce.

Sweet Baby Rays -  I love that stuff when I’m not making my own barbecue sauce HERE.

And the vegetable was garlic zucchini, cooked in foil so no dirty pans were involved with this meal. Nice. I like it when there are no dirty pans but a meal is made, don’t you? That was smart, Justin. Good job!!

The meal also boasted a Romaine lettuce salad with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

This was a class A grilled meal without a whole lot of preparation. I think it qualifies for the Mediterranean diet also.

Has anyone been grilling out there in blogland? Quintessential summer activity, is it not?

Love to all,
