This is how I made the
Grilled Chicken Kabobs
You'll need:
Two 1 lb. pkgs of chicken breast tenderloins
whole musrooms in a jar
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 red onion
(last three items cut into large peices)
For the marinade:
1/4 C. Lime juice
3/4 C. Teriyaki sauce
(You can use a pre-made marinade usually found near steak sauce at the grocery store.)
Marinate chicken tenders for at least two hours. Overnight should be fine as well. Heat grill. (I used my George Foreman grill.) Skewer chicken and vegetables. Alternating vegetables with chicken. (I skewered the chicken at the end, added a vegetable and then skewered the other end. This saved time not having to cut chicken.) Grill each skewer. Rotate every 2-4 minutes. Make sure chicken is done before removing from grill. Cooking time should take 10-15 minutes. Serve over rice.
Variations: Use steak and/or shrimp. Also, add pineapple chunks. (I thought I had some. I was disappointed about that!)
That yellow stuff is squash casserole. Needless to say, my husband was VERY happy!


Here are a few pictures of our goofy little princess.

Last Friday, Allyson went with me and my friend, Melissa, on an all-day shopping trip at Tanger Outlet Center. On the way back, we stopped for dinner at Buckner's in Jackson. It's delish and you'll eat way too much if you ever decide to eat there. Allyson had to have her picture made with the giant rooster out front.

On Saturday, Allyson insisted that she would take her nap with Daddy on our bed. I found her asleep with my necklace around her face. Can't be comfortable! My weird child!

You might think you've seen this one before. I got one of those inflatable beach ball sprinklers. She enjoyed it so much at her daycare for water day. It was just $12 at Wally World. I would have taken a few more so I could get her face, but I was too excited and wanted to get wet myself. I had just gotten back from the gym. It was refreshing!

That is all for now! :D
