Hah, if it was fresh (uncooked) sausage, I would not have cut it first. But, yes, I did cut it because it was one of those Hillshire Farms smoked sausages - already cooked. And, I didn't want to grill the entire link at once.

Not gonna lie that looks amazing...lol
Thanks for the kind words. I thawed out the rest of the chicken thighs and grilled them up with some veggies this evening. Nothing spectacular, but pretty tasty and healthy. And enough for lunch tomorrow. :)

The chicken thigh marinade: 1 tblspn balsamic vinegar, 1 tblspn worcestershire, 1.5 tblspn "steak-type dry seasoning" and about 1/3 cup olive oil. It can actually marinate for about 1 hour and be awesome, but the longer the better. Once you whip up the marinade, give it a taste. I usually end up adding a bit more of the worcestershire to balance out the vinegar. Full Disclosure: This marinade recipe was one I saw on Rachel Ray's t.v. show. I think she's friggin' annoying as hell, but I love this marinade.

The veggies (yellow squash, bell peppers, shrooms, italian zucchni) were just tossed in olive oil, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.

I think it looks great dude, I would eat it regardless of the "presentation." I think it looks quite presentable myself. (don't wanna be a chef, just wanna eat your food haha)

Cool, this thread is still alive. Thanks for the compliments and critiques. Yeah, you could be right about the presentation thing. If I was entering a competition that would certainly make a difference. Next time I post my dinner on here I'll put a little more effort into it. Unless I'm too stoned, which will most likely be the case.

This thread could be better if other folks started posting what they cooked. Stove top, oven, back yard bbq, hibachi on the beach, open campfire - post some home cooked food! We're heading into prime grilling season, so everyone should have something to post if they felt like it. I bet there's some awesome cooks that hang out on RIU.

Nice, someone else posted their food. Thanks Florida! How did you prepare the chicken? Never seen purple taters before. Those would make some cool looking french fries. I think I'm gonna grill up something else this week and post pics. Just need to figure out what to cook. It won't be the same old chicken thighs, tho.

Those potatoes sound awesome. Quick and easy too. I'm still figuring out what I'm going to cook next. I'm thinking about fried chicken and biscuits. I've been feeling poorly lately so I realized I need some roughage. Here was tonight's dinner. Fortunately, now is a great time of the year for fresh vegetables. I picked up some mangos and apples too. Those will be awesome for a late night snack or breakfast.
