What is your favorite grilled food? Mine are kabobs, whether made with chicken, beef, seafood or lamb, I like putting together ingredients for kabobs.

My BFF from New Rochelle was visiting this weekend, so in addition to some “girl talk” and a few cold Peach Bellinis, we dined on crabs, shrimp and chicken kabobs.

Skewer alternating veggies, mango and chicken. I usually start and end with a grape tomato, they seem to hold everything in place.

“Use what you got to make what you want was the inspiration for this mid-week meal.

I usually buy Ground Turkey but this week purchased Perdue Ground Chicken, and using ingredients that I already had on hand I jazzed up an ordinary loaf.

Hello Friends, I hope you had a good day.  

I didn’t make it into work this morning because of a quick moving, yet severe rainstorm that caused me to turn around and head home.  Fortunately the weather improved and it turned into a wonderful sunny afternoon.

I’m still on the Nutrisystem program and eating their meals but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped cooking dinner for my men.  Last night’s easy breezy meal contained only 4 ingredients that took 40 minutes to prepare.  

They really liked this dish and there was enough leftover for them to have for lunch today.  If you try this recipe let me know, and if you put your own little twist on it, tell me what you used.

Ingredients:
Dry Pasta
Turkey Sausage
Frozen Broccoli
Salad Dressing

The colors of summer –
Using a recipe from the @usaweekend magazine I made a Mediterranean Chickpea Salad. I didn’t have mozzarella so I used sharp cheddar and instead of cherry tomatoes I cut up a fresh tomato. The parsley was fresh from my garden.
