It feels like summer

The other day while searching the cupboards for dinner inspiration, I happened upon an old bag of wooden skewers. With no time to go to the grocery store, I decided to make shish kebabs (sp?) using whatever I had around. I cut up some chicken and threw it in a "marinade" (it was my first attempt at making my own marinade - something like vinegar, sugar, spices, and a bit of oil). When that was ready, I put it on the sticks along with some mushrooms, red onion, pieces of a lone sausage left over from a previous dinner, salted zucchini, and slices of mango. Brett was kind enough to bbq them for me and they turned out really great! We ate them with rice and soy sauce. Yum. I recommend this dinner for sure - simple, fast, versatile, and definitely a summery meal.

Yum! We love ka-bobs too! If you soak the skewers in water while you make dinner they don't burn...but I kind of like the look of them charred too. :)
