Love Your Grills

Another great method I find very quick and rewarding is by chopping large vegetables and seasoning the meat (depending on your choice) and just chucking them in the grill.

This is very quick and serves everything at once saving time and energy. I opt for grills when I have limited time for long preparations or when I`m tired and not in the "kitchen mood".
