Tonight my family and I had our first barbeque out on our back deck. It was the perfect night for it but I was so tired so I wanted to pull something together that my family would love but would be fairly easy on me. I went with beef and chicken kabobs and a green salad with a side of watermelon and Suddenly Salad Creamy Italian pasta salad.
It took me only about 15 minutes to prepare the entire meal. First I put the kabobs in a marinade of teriaki and olive oil. Then I put the pasta for Suddenly Salad on the boil. While that was cooking, I made the salad by just throwing some greens and carrots in a bowl. I cut up some cucumbers and tomatoes to top the salad while cutting up watermelon. When I was done with that I drained the pasta and mixed the mayonnaise and packet of seasoning. My family helped me bring it all out to the deck and we threw the kabobs on the grill while chatting and sipping wine.
We had such a great time and the meal was delicious. I am a huge fan of making dinner easy on myself – the kebobs and Suddenly Salad helped make that happen.
