Kebabs

I love my grill. It's the best thing in my cooking arsenal. When I asked for it for mother's day, James thought I was nuts. He said he never heard of a woman asking for a grill. Well, I do all the cooking, so I think I should have a grill fit for a queen... or at least for a mom!

Tonight we had beef kabobs. I bought boneless beef ribs, cut them into 1 inch pieces and marinated them for about an hour in worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, grill seasoning and fresh garlic. Then I skewered some orange bell pepper and onions on some bamboo skewers (after soaking them for awhile, of course!) and the did separate skewers of yellow squash and mushrooms.

All and all I'd give it a 6 on a scale of 10. OK... Healthy, for sure... Even the kiddo asked for more mushrooms! She skipped the onions and bell pepper, but she made up for it in squash and mushrooms. The meat was really tender, but had some muscle running through it so it really had to be cut smaller even after the 1" pieces.

Last night I did the HEB pre-marinated chicken thigh fajitas on the grill... Two nights in a row I didn't have to heat up my kitchen and we had good food. I'm all about easy and good.

Tomorrow night is chicken fettucine alfredo... guess I could grill the chicken thighs first... that could be really tasty! Think I'll try... I'll let you know how it turns out!
