I forgot to share this before the holiday weekend but hey, we still have all summer right?!

I’m a big fan of grilling, it gives my kitchen a break in the summer. Believe me my kitchen NEEDS a break. Anyway, when I grill I want to grill everything. I don’t want some stuff on the stove and some in the microwave, I want it ALL on the grill.

Vegetable Grill TricksSo I buy one of those disposable aluminum cake pans from the grocery store, they usually come in packs of two. I use them for all the small stuff that you cannot “normally grill” like here I have some sweet onion and sugar snap peas. I simple spray with a bit of olive oil or non-stick cooking spray. Afterward I wipe it down or if I have room, I’ll through it on the top rack in the dishwasher. I’ll get at least a few weeks of use out of just one.

I also (although not pictured) have been known to open a can of baked beans and throw it on the grill as is. Hey, the can is like a mini pot! If I want to add some more ingredients, I’ll put the beans in a disposable bread pan. Whatever works!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Your story is inspiring. And I can sure use some inspiration!
    I lost 58 lbs. on Weight Watchers 2-3 years ago. (it actually took me a year to lose) I was 2 lbs. from goal and just couldn’t seem to get over that hump. Then I started a new job in May ‘05 and everything just went to hell. I am now just 7 lbs from where I started at WW 3 years ago. And I am gaining about a lb. a week lately. I just couldn’t stand writing everything down constantly and looking up everything in the points book every time I wanted to eat. It just seems that WW made me more obsessed with food than I ever was on my own. Did you ever experience this or anyone who reads your blogs? I really need help NOW. I just can’t stand the thought of going back to WW. And I am no spring chicken……..the time is now! Any one have any ideas???

    Maybe you should try the Core plan that WW offers now. For me, being accountable for what I put in my mouth is best and I can’t lose a pound unless I journal but my mother is just the opposite. She doesn’t like the task of journaling so she uses the core plan and it works really well. It’s just a list of foods that you eat until you are full but not stuffed and best of all no counting. Give it a whirl. I think the support offered at the meetings is worth going and you might find that the core plan is just what you were looking for.
