Dinner Tonight: BBQ Chik’n, Eggplant Salad, Grilled Pineapple

I don’t want summer to end! I can’t get enough of the produce and feeling like I can grill anything I want! The first part of tonight’s dinner was a charred eggplant salad that caught my eye in the latest issue of Food Network Magazine:

Charred Eggplant Salad from Food Network Magazine

I also quartered a pineapple, sprinkled it with some organic sugar, and threw it on the grill while I was charring the eggplant. Adding the sugar helps the outside of the pineapple caramelize quickly on the grill and keeps the pineapple SO juicy and delicious!

Then I made Indoor BBQ Chicken for Jason and made myself the same thing but with a Quor’n meatless cutlet.

See you soon!

    I feel ya on not wanting summer produce to end! I’m not much of a summer weather fan but this year it’s like something hit me and summer fruit has become my favorite fruit ever…like mangoes and watermelon. D’oh. The grilled pineapple seriously has me intrigued and I’m hoping I’ll taste some in the near future.

    I love pineapple so much! I’ve bought so many this summer that I intended to grill, but by the time I cut it all up, I can’t wait and just eat it raw :) That eggplant dish looks great! Joey detests eggplant so I always stock up on recipes for anytime he goes out of town. That’s normal, right? :P
