I would love to hear your ideas for great, slightly unique
(nothing too crazy, I am surrounded by very picky eaters who are afraid to try new things) ideas for a great menu now that barbeque season is upon us.

So far, this is the plan for Monday (subject to change, especially if you guys come through with all the great ideas as you tend to):

Grilled sirloin tips marinated with a tiny bit of balsamic vinegar and tons of black pepper and garlic. Hopefully this will appeal to the carniverous folks because it is fairly familiar.

Chipotle lime shrimp skewers with lots of cilantro

A Grilled pork tenderloin probably marinated in mojo with a pineapple salsa

Corn on the cob, grilled of course, with a few different types of herb butter.

New potato salad  with roasted potatoes tossed with lemon zest, olive oil, garlic and dill.

Roasted veg salad with zuchinni, red onion, mushrooms, squash, and asparagus tossed in balsamic and olive oil.

and this may seem a bit odd, but trust me it's delicious... Tortellini tossed with roasted corn kernels, black beans, diced tomatoes, red onion, and a bit of chili pepper with a light cilantro dressing. It's a great pasta salad type thing.

I am also thinking a light and simple dessert like fresh strawberry shortcakes.

My menu is slightly less than coherent but I am going for variety without resorting to old favorites. What are your barbeque plans?

We plan on making a meal I saw on the Food Network the other day:

Margarita Grilled Chicken Sandwiches: http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,1977,FOOD_9936_37345,00.html

Pepper Stuffed with Chorizo, Shrimp, and Rice

We're gonna leave out the spicy ingredients though, cause we're wimpy. So no jalapenos and we're using red peppers instead of poblanos for the stuffed pepper recipe. I hope it ends up tasting alright!! I'll be sad if I'm left craving a good ole' BBQ cheeseburger.

I'm not doing anything special, but your menu sounds FANTASTIC!!!
