When the weather is nice, the kids want to spend all evening outside and I want to be with them.  I want to play, hang out, enjoy our backyard, and sip an iced tea.  Having several meals that I can make completed out on the grill gets me out of the kitchen and spending time with my family.  It's quick and easy and I also just serve it outside for summer al fresco dining.  I love long summer days because our backyard is the place to be when the sun starts to set.

Easy Grilled Asparagus Recipe - Simple ingredients for the side dish!

Last week I shared my Grilled Creole Chicken that was such a huge hit with my family and I served this Easy Grilled Asparagus with it. We use our grill several days a week during the summer so it seems fitting to make our side dishes out on the grill too.  There really is nothing to it and works with so many different veggies such as broccoli, zucchini, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, eggplant, the list goes on and on.  The only change would be the cooking time.  Once you learn how easy this easy {and how flavorful the vegetables are} you will be trying to grill all your veggies!
