Last year I had a potluck kebab party.
No…really, I desperately wanted to have another last sumer, but never got around to it. And I wasn’t about to let this summer go by without having another one!
We had some friends over for dinner last night and we made llllloooottttssss of kebabs! Some on skewers, and some on rosemary stalk/skewers. (Love the way that the rosemary makes the chicken and veggies taste.)
So here’s the deal with kebab parties.
- We are in a recession and everyone can chip in towards the cost of the kebabs. No huge costs on the host!
- They allow for a variety of fun kebab combinations and dipping sauces!
- You can ask others to ask bring a side dish or dessert. Again, spread the costs out…everyone wins that way!
- They are perfect for long, leisurely holiday weekends!
Seeing as how the Weber One Touch Charcoal Grill giveaway is still going on through the holiday weekend, I thought I’d give even more chances to enter! Head on over and share up to 3 of your favorite kebab combinations. (Be sure to leave 3 separate comments!)
I’m into grilling fruit kebabs these days…grilled pineapple, grilled strawberries…lip smackin’ good!
We are beyond grateful for the wonderful new addition to our back patio. Weber was kind enough to send us a new grill, and we couldn’t be more grateful! Our old grill was a Weber…and it was old. Our new grill is a Weber…and it is new. And sparkly too.
The grate surface area is so much larger, it is easier to turn on and off…and I’m not afraid that I’m going to blow up the grill each time I turn it on.
(This is true. Every time I would hit the ignite button on our old grill, I uttered a prayer under my breath that went something like this…Dear Lord, Please don’t let this grill blow up in my face. Please. Thanks!)
It also has a super handy dandy “upper deck” that allows for some indirect cooking. I have always been afraid of burning the bottom of cheeseburgers after placing the cheese on the burger and waiting for it to melt. Not a problem if let the cheeseburgers hang out on the “upper deck.”
Again, we are so thankful…for our unburned cheeseburgers, for no longer worrying about being blown up, and for the ability to batch grill more than before!
So now, I want to hear from you!
