A Plant-Strong 4th of July

So, on one of the days when Americans are most known for grilling out, what do you do when you're plant-strong?  You grill out - veggie style.  We actually do this almost every week.  It's nice to casually cook and eat dinner together outside.  Then, cold drink in hand, we kick back and enjoy the fire.  Our menu for the 4th this year was pretty simple, since it was just us this time.  We had veggie hotdogs, hotdog chili, asparagus, zucchini, squash, carrots (make great "hotdogs" when cooked soft enough), corn, and apple crisp.  Yum!

Zucchini, Squash, Carrots, and Red Peppers (for a later project)

Apple Crisp (baked inside early, but warmed over fire)
Cool part - the crisp was not made with butter!  I'll share that recipe later!
