Summer Eats: BBQ Chicken Bacon Pineapple Kabobs

Summer means less work, less school, and less time in the kitchen. We try to stick to food that can be cooked without using the hot oven in the summer. It just adds too much heat to our already hot house. We love to find meals that can be cooked almost entirely outdoors. Our grill gets a LOT of use during the summer months. Which makes the kids happy, since they can play outdoors while Mom and Dad cook. We are happy because it it less cleanup, and our time is spent relaxing and enjoying the beauty of summer outside.

This month I found a fun and simple kabob meal that my family absolutely loves, and I hope yours will too. Kabobs are so simple, fun, and delicious. It breaks up the monotony of burgers, hotdogs, and steak that comes with grilling outdoors. This fun recipe comes from the very fun and delicious blog written by Jessica and Nellie, Butter With a Side of Bread. These ladies know how to create a delicious dish!

I loved this recipe because it allowed me to get the kids involved in prep. They love anything they can poke with a stick. Just be sure to watch them and teach them how to do so without getting hurt. My older kids loved helping. Dad loved it because, well, BACON. I love pineapple so anything that incorporates my favorite summer fruit is always a win.

Head on over to Butter With a Side of Bread for the full recipe and tutorial. You will DEFINITELY want to check out their other ideas for summer meals, and meals all year long. You will also love their desserts. Enjoy!

Painted Rocks: Fourth of July Edition

Have you heard of the new fun activity that is becoming very popular amongst kids and parents? Painted rocks. This creative activity began as a fun way to interact with kids on a global level. This rock painting and hiding phenomenon was a way to get kids outdoors and spreading joy and kindness. Kids and parents go outdoors and find rocks, paint them with any fun, imaginative images, patterns, etc. Then they take the rock with them as they run errands around town. They find a unique place outside to leave the rock for someone else to find, and in turn they stay on the “lookout” for fun rocks of their own.

The rock hiding phenomenon has reached far and wide already. Rocks are being hidden and found all over including Jacksonville, North Carolina; Weymouth, Canada; and Redding, California. The rocks are bringing smiles to face everywhere.

Here in southern California you can find the rocks at parks, outside of grocery stores, and at local swimming pools. We have been excited to get in on the rock painting fun. So this weekend we decided to create some holiday inspired rocks, Fourth of July firework rocks. My kids loved painting the rocks. Even my youngest was excited to join in. We hid some at the fountain at the mall, one at the community pool for swim lessons, one at the fireworks event, and one at our neighborhood park. Where will you hide your rocks?
