It's summer time!  
Fire up the grill!
Our favorite:  KABOBS!
Here are a couple of tried and true family favorites!

Steak and Pepper Kabobs

1 lb  sirloin steak, (about 1 inch thick, cubed)
1 large green pepper
green onions, cut in chunks
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

In a gallon size ziploc bag, mix together oil, lemon juice, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper; add beef and shake to coat. Marinate for 1-2 hours.

For kabobs: seed, core and cut red pepper into 1-inch pieces. Alternately thread beef, pepper and onion loosely onto metal or soaked wooden skewers.

Place skewers on grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, until beef is browned but still pink inside, about 10 minutes.

Chicken Speedy Kabobs
(this recipe was snagged by my mother-in-law)
5-6 chicken breasts (cut into 1-2 in. cubes)
1/3 c. olive oil
1/2 c. vinegar
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. celery salt
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 T. parsley
1 T. rosemary
1 bay leaf

Let chicken  marinade for several hours.
Soak bamboo skewers in water and then thread on the chicken.
Grill over medium heat until chicken is cooled through. (about 10 min)
I threw on some onions and zucchini.  It was so good!

Love kabobs! Totally going to try these recipes. Troy will be thrilled. You know, you could make these meats in the marinade and freeze them for aprox 3-5 weeks! I love your kids happy faces at the table; such a satisfying feeling when you've made a yummy meal, huh?

I think instead of me making kabobs...I'm just going to "invite" myself over to make them with you and your family one of these summer evenings.

Oh man! We LOVE kabobs! We've already had them twice this summer -- next time I'll have to try out your recipe!

If they're as yummy as this last pic tells {too cute, by the way!}, I will have to pass this on to my hubs. :)
