Happy birthday to Amanda & Sarah!
Isn’t Google the best?
It’s another Monday and I’m not prepared to blog. I guess I could use the excuse it’s summertime and we’re out vacationing, but that isn’t true. I did go visit my parents this weekend, but I baked there and took pictures! I just didn’t upload anything to my computer yet.
I will give you a sneak peek, in words, for what you can look forward to in the upcoming weeks (from me).
So I recently read on a few different blogs about this amazing 5 minute microwave Chocolate Cake… And of course, I had to try it.
And EAT. It wasn’t my favorite cake. I think I need to try again because if you cook too long by any means – it gets rubbery. Eww.
This is going to be a pretty quick post. I’ve never made kabobs before and wanted to do something easy for dinner with Melissa, her husband, and David. I wanted to combine seafood, meat, and veggies and I thought kabobs would be the best way to do this.
–Bamboo Skewers (or metal ones)
-Green and Red Peppers
-Seasoning for meats/fish
-Sausages of any kind work
-Beef (the grocery store had pre-cut kabob beef)
-Scallops (not sure I’d do that again)
-Pork (we bought boneless ribs and cut them up)
All we really did was cut up the veggies into big cube sizes and season the meats. We did the same rub on the beef and pork and more of a salt and pepper rub on the fish.
To assemble, just layer the meat and veggies one skewers and on separate skewers the fish and veggies.
We put them on the grill to cook. Obviously the fish skewers take a different amount of time than the meat ones so make sure you take note of that and skewer things of like cooking time.
Here is our finished product!
