Simple Dinner

Last night, I made a family favorite simple dinner.

Grilled chicken: I buy the McCormick brand "Grill Mates"--they come in a package (like Taco Seasoning) and marinate the chicken in a zip lock. We like the Mesquite one but all of them are tasty. If I am organized, I do this in the morning and if I am super organized, I make a bunch of them all at once and freeze them.

Grilled Asparagus: I just toss them in olive oil and salt and pepper. While I am grilling the chicken, I put them on the top rack. Once the chicken is done, I put them on the grill for just a few minutes.

Fresh Mango

French bread

Dinner takes all of 20 minutes to put together and all of the major food groups are represented.

what kind of grill do you have? do you like it? we need to buy one. travis wants one that uses coals, but i think it's too much of a pain and i want gas.
