End of Summer Shrimp Skewers

It’s September already? I always mixed emotions because on one hand it’s my birthday month, but on the other hand, summer is coming to end.

Taco Tuesday Two Ways

Fun fact: Taco Tuesday was supposedly a promotion created by Wyoming based fast food chain Taco John’s in the 1980’s. I’m not exactly sure how it got so popular, because everyone has heard of Taco Tuesday.

Sweet & Spicy Grilled Chicken

Grilling out goes with summer the way peanut butter goes with jelly. When I was a kid though, I hated cook outs. I don’t eat red meat (honestly almost never have), so I was obviously not a fan of blackened hot dogs and hamburgers. Anything else on the grill I didn’t trust because it probably was…… Continue reading Sweet & Spicy Grilled Chicken
