Stuffed Portabello burger with Grilled Asparagus and Sweet Potato Fries!

After a few weeks of evening thunderstorms, we were definitely eager to get outside to grill! We kind of threw this meal together with stuff we had in the kitchen and it was so delicious, I wanted to share. Have a six-pack of summer ale on hand, and enjoy this simple, grill-friendly feast on a warm summer night!
