Shish-Ka-Bobs

More ideas for those peppers and red onions. How about shish-ka-bobs. I recently discovered "Recipe Inspirations" from McCormick. These pre-measured spices and recipe card inspire and move you away from your comfort zone. 

The Mediterranean package includes -
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp marjoram leave
3/4 tsp ground mustard
3/4 tsp basil leaves
3/4 tsp oregano leaves
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Mix the spices together. Drizzle olive oil over your choice of meat for the ka-bobs. You can use lamb, beef, or chicken. Then, sprinkle the spices over the meat. Marinade for flavors to sink into the meat.

In the meantime prepare your veggies. I used green peppers, red onions, and cherry tomatoes to make these beauties.

Lookin' good! Can't wait to taste!

Homemade Pizza

Wondering what to do with all those fresh green bell peppers now that they're in season again? How about trying a homemade vegetarian pizza.

So easy! Just spread Prego pizza sauce on whole wheat flat bread, top with fresh diced peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Add your favorite grated cheese and bake for 12-15 minutes until done. Yum!  We tried this a few nights ago along with homemade pepperoni pizzas, and my kids even liked it. Now that's a major feat in itself.
