Menu Plan Monday - It's All About the Grill, Baby!

After realizing last week that our grill isn't holding up too well, we purchased a new one over the weekend - yay! If you ever need a grill, the week before Father's Day seems to be the time to buy! We found lots of ads, sales, etc. for all kinds of grills and finally ended up with this one:
It's fun, because it also has a side burner where we can cook something in a pot. Tonight we enjoyed burgers on the grill, and let our corn on the cob cook right alongside it outside. Definitely keeps my kitchen cooler! And less mess to clean up afterwards, too. Here's what's on our (grill!) menu this week:

Monday: Hamburgers, corn on the cob, watermelon
Tuesday: Tunisian-Spiced Chicken Breasts, grilled red potato packets, strawberries
Wednesday: Kielbasa, corn on the cob, watermelon
Thursday: Grilled Trout, couscous, blueberry muffins, broccoli, fruit
Friday: Marinated Flank Steak (company's coming!) - plus a few sides (haven't decided on these yet)
Saturday: Celebrating our 12th anniversary and going out! Any suggestions for where we should go?
Sunday: Barbecue chicken, carrots, garlic bread, strawberries

We are definitely enjoying lots of summer fruits right now, too. My kids eat soooo much fruit I can barely keep enough in my frig! Yum!
