The Grill is on

The weather is warm to say the least, its staying light outside longer and this can only mean one thing, summer is on its way, and so we are eating ourselves some summer foods. I can't say I am great with the grill but I am trying and there is nothing better than eating grilled food. Last night we had Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs, I made them a few times last year but these were the best I've ever made, if you want to try them I substitute zucchini for the pineapple and marinade it along with the chicken and mushrooms, I used cremini mushrooms which is why I think they were extra tasty and I used Oscar Meyer turkey bacon instead of regular. I think the change in bacon really made the recipe better as the regular stuff is quite fatty which causes the grill to flame up a lot and char the veggies but I felt like the leaner turkey bacon let all the food really cook well. Alright enough of this foodie post, hope you try these yummy bites, if you don't have a grill your welcome to come eat with us, just let me know.

Here's the deal, you don't tell him its turkey bacon until he's told you how delish it is!! Although Eric doesn't complain if he doesn't have to cook, I'm just lucky I guess.
