Summer isn't over yet!

I can't believe that it's already September. It seems like yesterday was the beginning of May, a time when I had the whole summer at my fingertips. Now the weather is changing but my cooking style definitely isn't! Here's a great recipe that you should immediately prepare and throw on the grill! Why? Because frankly, it takes less than 30 minutes from prep to table, AND it is freaking delicious.
I first had this meal as leftovers on a visit to my dad's and was immediately addicted. Get grillin'.
