Too hot to do much of anything today but chill in the pool. In view of that, I scrounged in the freezer and came up with a small quantity of thinly-sliced beef. Along with onions and a can of chop suey veggies, we had beef chop suey over rice. A side of garden-fresh cucumber spears.

Wowzers!! They look just beautiful Cheryl! A well thought out mixed kabob can work out perfectly, and those sure did..

Beautiful kabobs, Cheryl!

We had corn-and-stuff salad over a bed of mixed baby greens and topped with Feta cheese and a fresh-made lime and basil dressing. Also, shrimp po'boys made with homemade blackening seasonings. Kinda spicy - hence the Abita Amber Ale.

Thank you, Kay and CG! I've been 'kabobbin' for 20 years or so and have learned by trial and error about what size to cut the beef cubes, what size to cut the veggies, and keeping the veggies together on the skewer so they kind of steam and don't shrivel up and dry out before the beef is done.

Now, chicken 'kabobs...that's another story. They get skewers all to themselves.

Yep, chicken is another story, and shrimp too.

I love shrimp, pineapple, onion slice and red pepper slice, but never put the fresh pineapple next to the shrimp. I have a shrimp kabob disaster story to tell about that, company witnessed. The enzymes in fresh pineapple will eat up the shrimp if it's strung in advance before grilling.

I'm wanting to kabob on the grill again after seeing those pics. Getting the veggies grilled to perfection when the meat is ready is my goal. I like a lot of veggies, so I use more and larger slices. I briefly zap large onion and bell pepper slices before skewing them, so they end up fully cooked along side the meat.

So pretty, yum.
