Best Present Ever.

Donna and Jim got us a Weber grill as a engagement present, we were excited at the time but if we had known all the awesome things that we were going to make with it we probably would had done cartwheels.

As soon as it got warm we started grilling out. Steaks, salmon, hamburgers, chicken wings. But then we got in to a rut where we were grilling the same things over and over again even though they were delicious every time we wanted something new.

A couple cook books have been inspiring us this week and we had the best dinner that has come off the grill yet.

Grilled Shrimp
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic powder pepper blend
Jumbo Shrimp, peeled

Put everything in a zip lock and let the shrimp marinate in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes. Then throw the shrimp on the grill until they look like they are done.

Grilled Pineapple and Watermelon
Drizzle some honey of the pieces of fruit and throw em on the grill. Mark says to take it off when the char marks appear. The pineapple was awesome, the watermelon was watermelon, you cant really mess that up.

Cover with Olive Oil and season with salt and pepper, then throw them on the grill until they are done how you like them.
