Soak 10-15 bamboo skewers in water for about a half hour.  Parboil the sweet potato and carrots to soften, then cut into bite size chunks.  Wash and slice zucchini, yellow squash, 1/2 onion, and bell pepper into bite sized chunks and separate into gallon size zip lock bags with cherry tomatoes.

Place ingredients for marinade in blender: lemon juice, garlic, ½ onion, olive oil, salt, pepper, and any other desired herbs.  Blend until mixed well.  Drizzle over vegetables and let marinate for at least an hour.

Heat grill and slide marinated veggies onto skewers.  Place veggie skewers on grill and cook about 10 minutes or until desired tenderness.
