SHISH-KA-BOB'it Baby!!!

We had Shish-Ka-Bobs the other night. I haven't made them in awhile. I don't know why? This menu item just kinda' slipped my mind for an entire summer awhile. Anyhow, this is a good, tasty and healthy treat that can be made pretty cheap if you play your cards right! It all depends on the ingredients and cuts of meat you choose. I chose, boneless chicken thighs, a cheap thin cut of beef steak, and thin cut pork chops -- all real cheap! Then, vegetables: yellow squash, calavace or green squash, purple onion, green bell pepper, and jalapeno (for me). You can add mushrooms, tomatoes and anything else you like grilled or sauteed.
Layer in mixed fashion on skewers. If using wood skewers? You need to soak them in water first for awhile. To prevent them from burning on the pit. We invested in an inexpensive set of four (enough to feed more than four of us) stainless steel skewers.
Season assembled kabobs.  I also like to marinate with some Italian Dressing.  I use "Wish Bone" name brand for this type of cooking.  Chopped items  Layered Skewers (the extras I mixed in foil with some butter   
They are now ready to grill!  [They were wonderfully tasty too, by the way!]
Well, Lil'Gal and I are headed off with 20 minutes to get to Gymnastics today.  Then, to pick up her new prescription, and a few items at the store, and back home for all the rest!
Happy Grillin' and Happy Tuesday!

I love my grill for shish kabobs! You sure get lots onto one skewer!! I use soaked wooden skewers, about 8 inches long. Bell peppers, sweet onions (Walla Walla's if I can get them, but they only have Vidalia'a around here)...yummy!!

The thing I haven't tried is marinating the meat first, which of course would allow me to use some nice cheap cuts of beef. I'm going to make these soon --maybe next weekend?

I totally commented on your morning blog today a lunch! And it's gone! :( Anyway . . . I was commenting to apologize for not coming around too often, but that I have trouble keeping up because you post so dang often and I just don't have the time to come that often or read them all when I do come! So anyway . . . I am still around, I promise, and still love to read! And those skewers look AMAZING. Wish I had been there for dinner!

Totally looks great. I hadn't made them in a long time either...I think I cook the meat and veggies separate tho. The meat generally takes longer than the veggies, unless you like well done veggies(I do, but DH likes them crisp) It sure has given me a great supper idea!! Thank you chic!-Christi
