Summertime Marinade

My parents recently bought us a spiffy infrared grill. I think grilling is my new favorite thing because of this grill. I've tried to appreciate charcoal grills (and certainly love their flavor), but getting those darn charcoals to light and heat up can be so frustrating (especially when hungry). Now, I have to resist grilling for every meal. But last night, I couldn't help myself... 

I marinated some chicken breasts and kabob'd some veggies for the grill.  The marinade was so simple and so very delicious!

Chicken and Veggie Marinade: 

Lime juice
Balsamic vinegar
Olive oil
Garlic powder

While the grill was doing it's thang I couldn't help but snap some shots of the plants in my yard. They seemed to be enjoying the summer afternoon as much as I was. 

Once the veggies and chicken were done grilling and soaking up all of the tasty flavors, I served it up with some spring salad mix, dressed with the remainder marinade from the veggies (not the chicken! because that would be a health hazard!), and the most amazing quinoa salad I have ever had.
