Grilled Picante Chicken Skewers

it was a big week-not only did i make butternut squash soup, i had my grill master toss these easy & healthy chicken skewers on the coals for a last ditch effort to save summer. it failed...it's 30-degrees out. but these delicious chicken bites were a win.

oh, & another bit of business i'd like to discuss...commercials.

these mormon commercials. all. over. t.v.

they are funny. odd. weird. uncomfortable. i'm just confused. either way i'm getting on the cain train...if you can sell pizza, by god you can run a country.

secondly, the charmin commercial for target. it starts with a cute little lady bug trick o' treater ringing a door bell....and then my 4 pound dog goes BALLISTIC. i'm talking all out attacks the front door thinking it's our door bell. i only know it's a charmin target commercial b/c it just came on in my hotel room & i shot out of my bed to grab...well, nothing. then i realized there was actually a product advertised. again, funny. odd. weird. but she deals with things like this...so i deal with outbursts like that.

*shit mom...is this for real?!

*it is for real...and it has a topper!!

and lastly, before we get to the actual recipe, i leave you with a question i've been contemplating lately. do you tip if you get take out?!

2. add all other ingredients & toss to coat. marinate for 2-4 hours.

  1. love the costume! and i am a pushover. i tip when i shouldn't and always give more than i should. i don't do much of a tip when i pick up though! but i still feel like i have to give them something for preparing my food and i always feel so bad when the pizza delivery guy is just standing there waiting, i have to tip in FRONT of him so he always wins
