Oh well, I made do. Instead I picked up some chicken tenders (which are my favorites for kebabs--super easy!) and some steak tips (to make the picky husband happy). I got up early on Wednesday morning and mixed up the marinade and put the chicken in. I marinated the steak is some spicy BBQ type sauce.
For those of you who do not have a microplane, it is one of my favorite gadgets! It is great for grating hard cheeses, nutmeg, and in this case, ginger and garlic!
The chicken sat in the marinade all day and then I skewered everything up. I kept the veggies separate (picky husband strikes again) and did two skewers of chicken and two of steak.
And while I may complain a bit about the fact that my husband is picky, he did do all the actual cooking while I visited with my parents, so I have to give him some credit!
