Adults grilling kabobs
Yes, this a picture I took of the real finished product just before I let my family enjoy.
Every year when the weather warms up, the grilling tongs come out and the people rejoice. Fresh meats, everything from chicken to ribs, get strewn across heated grate after heated grate.
My background in grilling goes back to my early days when I would watch carefully as my dad used the grill to prepare tasty masterpieces. Whenever the sun was out in full effect, you could bet that our family would gather outside to enjoy a meal made the old-fashioned way: over flames.
Since those early days, the tongs have been passed from father to son and I now preside over our grilling kingdom as ‘Lord of the Flame’ (self titled).
While not every meal turned out well, my family ate through the over-cooked, the under-cooked and the creative failures. Through trial and error I have perfected the craft and now have the family waiting in anticipation for my grilled items to hit their plates every time they hear the grill turn on.
According to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association, May is officially National BBQ Month, one of the tastiest months of the entire year. In the spirit of the season, I offer one of my successes: beef kabobs that are sure to satisfy the entire family all while keeping everyone healthy. Use this cookout recipe to celebrate the season while keeping your health in mind!
I would love to hear how the recipe turned out for you and your family. Leave me a comment!
