Grilled Summer Vegitable skewers

Summer is Chicago is sometimes like catching a bus, You have a general idea of when it will arrive but you can't count on it until it is sitting in front of you. It is mid August, 2013. usually it is SO HOT in town, that you can't find clothing that keeps you comfortable standing on the street sidewalk did not help things. this year, we have 70's and after a spring of rain, a lot of farmers are finding a solid amount of produce. Perfect! I can grill and, well..... Not be grilled doing it. Here is my latest from today. Squash, Zucchini,Green and red peppers,baby peppers with Yellow Onions......and Pineapple! It has that perfect light color, the sweet, yummy summer taste we are all looking for and just maybe it will get Squash and Zucchini past the lips of the non believers. So this is my Grilled summer veggies: depending on the amount of people are actually eating... 1 yellow squash and 1 green zucchini if you have more friends, add more of these. 1 yellow onion 1 green pepper 1 red pepper 1 cored pineapple Chop all veggies to fit on the skewer poke the water soaked skewers through the onion first add veggies in a creative color pattern to finish the skewer. Add a little olive oil followed by any spice you want. Hot pepper, herb garlic, thyme and rosemary. You cant go wrong, just flavor as you choose to. I will include photos of spices needed
