Our grocery store makes up these wonderful beef and veggie kabobs that we’ve eaten on numerous occasions and we decided to have them again tonight. We like to defy winter by grilling all year long. When we got to the store they only had all meat kabobs instead of the meat/veggie ones we normally purchase. Apparently they stop making them in the fall as they don’t sell well in the winter months. Go figure huh? So we bought the all meat kabobs and decided to add veggies to them. The nice butcher gave us extra skewers. I thought I’d share the process in photos.
On the grill:
And finally, a little perspective and you can see how much snow we’ve gotten this season. Is it spring yet??
A few notes from the post-grilling. One, don’t finish building the kabob with a piece of meat on the end. Hubby said two fell off but he rescued them. Two, he decided that perhaps kabobs aren’t the best thing to grill in winter. You see with a steak he puts it on the grill and lets it cook for 5 minutes. He then goes out there to flip it and it’s done in another 5 minutes. I guess kabobs need a bit more attention and he wasn’t really liking going back out in the 14 degree weather to keep turning them. Live and learn I guess! But they sure were yummy :)

Yummy. Wish I could get at my BBQ in winter. Good idea doing your own.
we keep that part of our patio clear of snow just so we can grill. but we’ll probably wait for spring to have kabobs again :)
\i know that helps. My BBQ, since I moved in with my daughter, has been parked on the other side of the storage shed–forget the snow piled on top. :-) Not that I’m especially destroyed over it.
We grill year-round, too — this last extra foot of snow is creating more challenges, though, as we’re running out of room to put the snow!
I know what you mean! the driveway gets narrower and narrower. maybe this will be the last big dump of snow? we can hope!! and I thought January was bad….ready to say good riddance to February at this point :) Thanks for stopping by!
Defying the elements in pursuit of fab food – love the concept. As long as it’s not me having to turn them ;-)
I know what I want for dinner now. Kabobs are a fun way to eat. Kids will eat stuff off a kabob, that they otherwise would not.
If I do kebabs I always do them in the grill pan of our oven. Do they taste different done on a BBQ? I guess so. Such dedication to your stomaches! I’d be making do with a toastie :)
toastie? not sure if they taste differently on the grill. we always cook them that way :)
