I had some Zucchinis that I'd forgot we bought and they looked like they needed to be cooked right away. I just threw a bunch of ingredients into a Ziploc, threw in the Zucchini, shook it around and hoped for the best as I tossed it on the grill. Sometimes I'm so surprised at how food can come out so tasty, when you put no thought into it at all. Maybe I just have easily pleased taste buds? Or maybe I have a knack for this cooking thing? Let your taste buds decide with this hot off the grill recipe

2-3 Zucchinis 6-8 inches long (sliced 1/2 inch thick)
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
1-2 garlic cloves (minced, 1 1/2 tsp)
1 tsp red onion (diced)
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp fresh crack pepper
6 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp essence

Pour all ingredients into a seal able container or a Ziploc bag and shake until mixed well. Sit in refrigerator and let marinate 4-5 hours.

Heat grill to medium high. Place all Zucchini slices directly on grill and cook for 6-7 minutes. Flip all zucchini pieces over and cook for an additional 6-7 minutes. (For a fancier criss cross grill mark look you can rotate the zucchini after 3 minutes, grill and additional 4, flip over and repeat for a crisscross pattern.) Serve hot off the grill.
