Last night we were looking for a quick and easy meal, and that was not easy since grocery day is coming and the fridge is beginning to look bare. My father-in-law took charge (so I could catch up on work after a weekend away), and came up with a tasty BBQ feast.

1. Grilled tofu, basted with BBQ sauce.

2. Zucchini, red onion, eggplant, and red pepper skewers (coat in olive oil, season with salt and pepper and dried basil).

We served this with some squash (cooked in the microwave and mixed with maple syrup), and boiled red potatoes. Very tasty.

TIP! Freezing tofu makes for a chewier texture. Plus, when it thaws it makes the tofu more "sponge-like" which means it will soak up whatever marinade/basting sauce you are using.
