End of summer?

Summer's drawing to a close, but we're going to be out on our patio even when it's cold. In anticipation of the cold, we have a fire pit and a gas heater (like the ones on restaurant patios) So just because the summer is almost over don't think I won't be posting more grilled recipes.

So again we had some friends over. This time we had some of the Cajun chicken I've made in the past and I made a new summer squash recipe. Turned out awesome if I do say so myself.

Summer Squash
2 Yellow squash -cut into chunks
1 large Zucchini - cut into chunks
1/2 onion chopped
1/4 green bell pepper chopped
1/4 purple (or red) bell pepper chipped
1/4 cup white balsamic citrus basil marinade
1/2 cup feta cheese (basil & tomato)
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Savory
Chop and/or chunk all veggies and put in a boil. Add marinade and mix thoroughly. Add spices and 1/4 cup feta and mix thoroughly again. Place in fridge for a couple of hours. Then place in a 13x 9" foil pan place on the grill when it's almost done sprinkle the other 1/4 cup feta over the top and finish cooking.

Dinner was served with (for those who wanted white) a nice crisp Riesling and some had a Pinot Grigio both paired well. For those who like red we had a Cabernet Sauvignon.
