It’s Grilling Season!

Hello everyone, spring time is here and it’s time to start up the grill! :) I know everyone’s lives seem to be super busy this time of year and grilling is an easy solution to make the most of your dinner with quick prep-time and easy clean-up!

One of my favorite things to cook on the grill is kabobs! The best part is, there is no recipe and you can make them as creative and colorful as you want! They are great for your everyday dinner or even fun to make when you invite friends over!  All you need is some beef fajita strips from your local meat market, some veggies (peppers, onion, tomatoes, zucchini, squash…), and you can even add pineapple like I did! You can marinade the meat with some Italian dressing and soy sauce if you like.  Thread the meat and vegetables onto wooden or metal skewers and cook until the meat reaches 160 degrees and is cooked all the way through.  Remove from the skewer and server over a bed of brown or white rice!

This meal not only tastes good, it is also very nutritious!  It’s loaded with vegetables and beef is a great source of protein, iron, zinc and B-vitamins.  These key nutrients help fuel your body so you have more energy, boost your immune system and help build strong muscles!
