Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs {dairy + gluten free}

I really find that when we're in the throes of summer and heading toward the start of the new school year, I start to slack off a little on meal planning. We have gotten into a bad habit of going out to eat frequently which throws off our whole weeknight routine.  I have a list of typical meals that I can throw together the night before so we can have a quick dinner the next evening, but sometimes even those recipes get a little old. 

Combine that with my desire to stretch grilling season out as long as possible so as not to heat up my kitchen, and these quick, grilled, kabob meals are my new go-to. Just like our Hawaiian Pork Kabobs or our Shrimp Boil Kabobs, these have quickly become a new favorite around here!

Grilled Shrimp Boil Kabobs (dairy + gluten free)

Our summer meals primarily consist of either tossing something on the grill, or throwing something together quickly before heading off to games, practices, the pool, etc. When we can find a few free evenings to enjoy a slower paced meal, I try to mix it up a bit and try new things, but still try to do our cooking outdoors as much as possible. I can't stand heating up the house by using the oven or stove when it's already a scorcher!

One of our family favorites is a good, old fashioned seafood boil. We've gone all out with crab legs before, which can get a little pricey, especially if you're trying to feed a crowd. Every now and then though, we like to enjoy the food without all the fuss. I've done shrimp boil packets many times as well, but this kabob version is super simple and easy to prep ahead. While a full blown seafood boil is great, this shrimp only version cuts the cost a bit and there's no need to stand over a huge pot of boiling water to enjoy the same flavors.

Summer BBQ Dinner Party

One of our favorite things to do when the weather warms up is having our friends and family over, grilling out, and enjoying good food and each other’s company. It has been a usual occurrence since my husband and I began dating, with me making a last minute plan to have everyone over and him putting up with agreeing with me. I always seem to have a theme in mind also. We've done many a seafood boil and we host a pumpkin carving party every fall.

No matter the theme or my vision, we're usually firing up the grill for some delicious dishes. One bonus about grilling out is not heating up the entire house with a hot and overworked oven! One of our recent favorites is ribs. It all started last Labor Day weekend when my husband wanted to try and cook some ribs the day before our little man was due to arrive. Not only were the ribs delicious, but little baby Dawson must've thought so too because I went into labor just a few hours later! :)

Since then, my husband purchased a smoker and we have enjoyed delicious ribs and other meats many times since then. One perk of living as near as we do to Kansas City is all of the delicious food options nearby. Kansas City is famous for its BBQ and we sure do love it! Even so, it is nice to be able to easily recreate that delicious BBQ in the comfort of our backyard at times.

Grilled Balsamic Steak {Dairy & Gluten Free}

It was a cold and blustery day today. The boys have been especially good this weekend, and since we all had the day off, we decided to go see a movie as a family. Escape from Planet Earth is a super cute, family friendly movie. I highly recommend it!

Since we were gone most of the afternoon, I wanted to prepare dinner ahead and not have to spend much time cooking when we got home. I was able to prep everything during nap time and not have to think about it again for a few hours.

Grilled Balsamic Steak {Dairy & Gluten Free}

Serves 6-8                                                             Printable Recipe

1-2 lb steak (I've used both flank steak and skirt steak with great results)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (flavored or plain)
2 Tbsp Tamari gluten-free soy sauce
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
salt & pepper

Season the steak with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large container or gallon zipper bag, combine balsamic vinegar, Tamari, honey, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes. Add steak and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 4-8 hours.

When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade. Place on the grill and cook to desired internal temperature. I usually like medium which takes about 7 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your meat.

Remove from the grill, cover with foil and allow the meat to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Slice the meat thinly with a sharp knife just before serving. Serve as a stir-fry with vegetables and rice, or with some mashed cauliflower or potatoes and a salad.
