Summery Monday Dinner (I lied...)

Turned out that last night fell into the 2% category - Wright surprised my by bringing home melon and prosciutto instead of cheese!

Though startled at first, the minute I started cutting up the melon my mouth was watering! The combination of the juicy melon with the salty prosciutto is just heaven. A perfect appetizer for a warm summer day. (Well, I guess it's not technically summer yet, but it is finally starting to feel like it!)

On my way home from work, I picked up some fresh veggies to grill - zucchini, squash, tomato, red onion, and yellow pepper. Obviously, we don't have an outdoor grill, but the cast iron grill pan worked just fine. I sliced up the veggies into grill-able pieces, tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic, and grilled 'em up until they were soft and juicy. Then, I put a couple of dashes of balsamic vinegar, some more garlic, and some thin slices of shallots into the mix. So easy and delicious - plus, very colorful!

We served with a simple grilled ciabatta, the prosciutto and melon, and a cold beer. So easy and so flavorful.
