Labor Day BBQ

Leave a comment

For some, Labor Day  means an end to the BBQ season.  Living in Southern California, there is no such thing – it does not stop us however from still celebrating the “end of the season”.  Fall seems like it has been here for a while already — that is the kids have been back to school almost a month already but the temperatures here have been well into the 90s and on many days over 100 (Let’s just say even without the humidity: 111 F is HOT when you are doing car pool duties) I digress: We had chicken and beef kabobs for dinner today.  I had picked up some from the grocery store and marinated the chicken in a Lemon Pepper Marinade and the Beef in Steak and Pepper Marinade.

Cooked them on a hot BBQ for 7-8 minutes on each side and served them.  They turned out great.  You can use any Marinade you wish to suit your tastes.  Link

Chicken Kabobs alternate:

  • chicken breast pieces, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • Red onion, cut into quarters
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Yellow Bell Peppers

Lawry’s brand Lemon Pepper Marinade – pour the marinade over the assembled kabobs and marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Cook over hot grill for 7-8 minutes per side (14-16 minutes total).

Beef Kabobs alternate:

  • sirloin steak, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • wedges of red onion
  • wedges of red peppers

Lawry’s Steak and Pepper Marinade- pour over the beef kabobs and marinate for at least 30 minutes

Cook over a hot grill for 7-8 minutes per side (14-16 minutes total).

I am a home school mom of three wonderful kids. I have been married for over 20 years and am still in love. I love to cook, as a young child I enjoyed spending time with my mom in the kitchen and that love has grown into a passion. I started this blog to share my favorite recipes with friends and family and have enjoyed seeing it grow beyond those boundaries.
