This weekend is pretty low key, because the next few months are pretty busy. We have weddings, cookouts and family gatherings. We went to the Farmer’s Market yesterday morning and we got a big bunch of lettuce (I want to attempt lettuce wraps), 4 large steak tomatoes and a bunch of kale for only $8- you can’t beat that. We traveled to the Co-op, I was on a mission to find fresh crab meat for a pasta I want to make that I saw on Take Home Chef-with Curtis Stone. We are watching the episodes on Netflix, they are only about 20 mins long and have pretty good easy restaurants. I want a chef to find me in a grocery store and come home and cook for me. That would be heavenly. He does a lot of seafood/fish dishes and I am pretty sure I drool every time we watch an episode like that. He made a Crab Spaghetti in one of the episodes that we watched and I am going to re-create that. I hope it turns out.
Interrupted during blog post- Arie rolled in goose poop and got a bath- get the geese out of the yard!
In the meantime, we were trying to figure out what to make for supper last night, now that our refrigerator and freezer are stocked full we have plenty of food, just need to be creative. We have lots of bell peppers, onions and chicken- those ingredients are great Kabob ingredients, Carl searched online for a marinade recipe for the chicken and came up with a Garlic Lemon one. We only let it marinade for 3 hours because it wasn’t until later when we decided what to eat. I still have sugar snap peas and I made that our side dish. I think that is my new favorite side dish. So easy to make and they have a lot of flavor.
Here is the link to the recipe- Garlic Lemon Chicken Kabobs
- I added lemon juice into the marinade along with the lemon zest.
Sugar Snap Peas-
- olive oil
- a couple squeezes of lemon juice (add to your taste)
- crushed red pepper flakes
Our pictures of Saturday supper.
Our sugar snap peas, cut up veggies in the bowl-onion, red/green bell peppers and mushrooms. In the bag, our marinaded chicken.
It was fun to make our own kabobs.
The finished product! It was light and full of flavor.
