On the Sunday before the July 4th holiday,
just the two of us were home for our evening meal.
Our strawberry dessert was made with CandiQuick instead of white chocolate.
It melts easily in the microwave & sets up to a hard shell when cool.
If you put the blue sugar in a shot glass,
it makes it easier to dip just the tip of the strawberry.
I also made this Hula Kabobs recipe
which came from Val So Cal
Thanks for sharing it, Val!
I made a few additions & substitutions based on what I had on hand.
Go see her gorgeous shot of the ones she made!
- 1 kielbasa cut into 1 inch chunks
- half of a pineapple, cut into chunks
- 1 red or green bell pepper, cut into chunks
- 2 teaspoons sherry (optional)
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 red or white onion, cut into chunks
- 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 3 to 4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
garlic powder. Stir in the kielbasa, pineapple, peppers and onion and stir
until well coated.
Cover and marinate for at least 2 hours.
2) Preheat the grill to med-high heat.
3) Lightly oil the grill grate. Layer your kielbasa and veggies onto the skewers.
Throw away any remaining marinade!
Grill 15 to 20 minutes or until veggies are tender.
This photo was taken before going onto the grill.
You can see, I added some white button mushrooms (which were NOT marinated)
just as I was threading them onto the skewers.
Onto the grill, smelling so good!!!
Ready to serve with rice pilaf & a side salad.
Oh & don't forget that dessert!
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House.
I hope you had a wonderfully safe & happy 4th of July!
I'm joining Marty's
just because this looked so pretty on the back patio table
with the matching patriotic colored flowers.
