One of my favorite things to do in the summer is grill out. It makes your food taste so different, and it helps keep the mess out of the kitchen.
Last week, I wanted something different so I thought to make beef skewers. It's really simple to throw together, and makes for a great dinner.
You just need:
Red Pepper, Green Pepper, Onions
You could also add Yellow peppers or any other vegetable that you wish.
My boys helped me put these together, and they had a great time with it.
The teacher in me says this is good practice for hand/eye coordination :)
We also cooked baked potatoes on the grill. Just wrap them in foil and cook for 40 minutes.
Corn on the cob is also an easy food to cook on the grill. You can leave them in the husks, or cook them cleaned up either way. I put some olive oil and salt/pepper on ours without the husks, and they turned out great.
Hope you'll use these ideas this summer!
