It’s good to be back! I took the last couple of weeks off to relax and vacation with my family. Each summer, Pete and I rent a cabin for a week to relax while our kids head off to Kanakuk Kamps. Unplugging and taking time off is so important for our health, yet people often overlook this need. We can get too tied to our devices, social media, and the hustle and bustle of life; it’s important to intentionally schedule time off for rest and rejuvenation.
I spent a lot of time on the porch, looking out at the woods, reading some great books and cooking simple meals.
Kabobs are a great summer meal because they can be prepared quickly, you can use a variety of meats and vegetables and they make for such a colorful presentation. For this recipe, I used my Mom’s tequila-lime marinade and then blended together herbs, garlic and olive oil for a vibrant sauce to go on top. The flavors are clean and bright with juicy chicken and crunchy vegetables. You can serve this dish alone or with a big crisp salad.
