inviting warm weather with simple summer kebobs

The weather has been fantastic. It demands flip flops and shorts, and long runs outside. And grilling outdoors in the evenings with a frosty cold beer or a good glass of wine.

Last night was such a night. I had a ton of veggies to use up and was craving them grilled – something I haven't had since the end of last summer. (Especially mushrooms. I love grilled, marinated mushrooms.)

In a half a shake of a lamb's tail we had cut chicken breasts into chunks and got them marinating in teriyaki. While the chicken was drinking in the flavor, we chopped onions, white mushrooms and green peppers into bite-sized pieces, and added cherry tomatoes to the pile. Then we strung skewers with the chicken and veggies and threw the on the grill.

Because I got home kind of late from the gym, we didn't have time to marinate the veggies like I usually do. So we improvised and whipped up some Italian dressing to brush the veggies with on the grill. Turned out to be quite tasty in a pinch. And extra delicious paired with fresh yellow rice.

While there's really no recipe for this, I can tell you that you should make it to woo summer into coming. If you don't like onions and peppers, use zucchini and squash. Don't like chicken? Use pork or beef. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy.
