Boy, were these YUMMY!!!!


1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3-4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
4 cloves garlic
2 small onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
2 red or green bell peppers, cut into 2 inch pieces

In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Before adding chicken, reserve a small amount of marinade to brush onto kabobs while cooking. Place the chicken, garlic, onions and peppers in the bowl, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours (the longer the better).
Preheat the grill for high heat. Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables, and discard marinade. Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto the skewers. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Turn and brush with reserved marinade frequently.

What a surprise!!!

Thanks to Picky Palate, we decided to have a quick and easy meal last night!!! Honestly, I didn't think that her Garlic Toasted Open Faced Lasagna Ciabattas was gonna be a hit at my house. I sometimes throw together what I call "pizza bread" when I'm short on time - and I hear complaints all around. Especially from my dear husband!!! He hates that meal with a passion. Well, I thought I'd give this one a try since it was a little different. Man, oh man were we surprised!!! He loved it!!! It was that good! It was even good today heated up for lunch. If you're short on time - you really should give this a try. It has made our "keeper" list for sure!

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Hi...haven't posted in forever, hadn't had anything really exciting to post about...LOL! Anyway, tonight I made Gravy Baked Pork Chops! Talk about they were soo good! I did change a few things though:

I used 8 Pork Chops
2 cans of cream of celery (not my first pick, but didn't have my staple and didn't plan ahead)

I sauted some garlic with the pork chops and cooked them in olive oil. When I mixed in the soups and milk (I didn't use water), I added the sauted garlic (wish I'd had some mushrooms...again no planning) and some black pepper for extra flavor. Also, when I seasoned my pork chops, I seasoned with McCorkmick's Garlic Herb...YUM!! Cooked uncovered for the 45 minutes and it was so good! Served it with sauted Asparagus and some yummy rice. Those chops were licked clean, and even though I do not like cream of celery, the gravy was the bomb! Can't wait to try it with cream of mushroom and some fresh mushroom!!
Enjoy the summer....can't wait to try some of those awesome salads out there!!
