Oh my gosh, you guys….Father’s Day!!! Are you ready? I, for one, am NOT. Sure, I’ve thought about it, but I currently have zero presents and zilch plans. Time to get a move on!
I’m pretty much in the same boat every year at this time. Knowing that Father’s Day is just around the corner, wishing that I had started planning for it sooner. But alas…..here I find myself….with less than two weeks to go and not even so much as an idea….!
To be honest, I think I’m a little jaded. From years and years of failed Father’s Day gift giving. Between the hammock and the lawn games and the hanging chairs, all of which have been returned, I must say my confidence in my ability to pick out a winning Father’s Day gift is limited. No wonder I put it off until the last minute….!
Luckily, though, at least I have the menu planned. Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Kabobs! I made these the other night and my husband LOVED them! And he’s not typically one to add fruit to a savory dish. But something happens to the pineapple when it’s mixed with chicken and potatoes and peppers and onions, covered in a sweet pineapple teriyaki marinade, and grilled to perfection. The result is absolutely delicious! Delicious enough to have the hubby going back for seconds and thirds….and that’s not counting the brats he started with!
But I think my two favorite things about this recipe are the Honey Ginger Teriyaki Sauce for drizzling on top and the fact that they’re made with all natural chicken! Have you seen the Simply Roundy’s line of products? It was introduced in 2014 and is filled with over 150 items, including produce, dairy, frozen foods, cereal, coffee, snacks, pasta, soups, spices, and now this delicious all natural chicken. It’s raised without antibiotics, added hormones, steroids, or animal by-products. It’s air-chilled, fresh (never frozen), and the chickens are fed an all-vegetarian diet. And…there are 6 different varieties, including boneless breast, thin sliced breast, tender, boneless thigh, drumstick, and whole fryer. So in addition to the great flavor of the kabobs, you can feel GREAT about feeding them to your family!
Now, on to the gift. Unless you think an amazing meal counts as gift enough…..!? I won’t hold my breath on that one….but I will look forward to making these again in just a few short days! And I hope you will, too. You WON’T be disappointed!
