As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Kabob Dinner Party

I recently hosted a few friends for a relaxing Friday night dinner. With both vegetarians and meat-eaters in attendance, I decided to use a refrigerator full of vegetables, one large pineapple, as well as some shrimp and tofu for kabobs. Because this entree was so easy to assemble and cook- just chop, stack, grill- they were an excellent way to allow for ample time with friends. 

1. Marinate cubes of firm, dried tofu and/or large shrimp. 
For tofu, marinade ~10-15 minutes in Sriracha, spices, mustard and garlic. For shrimp, sprinkle just before stacking on kabob with lime juice and chili powder.
2. Chop bell peppers, onions, and pineapple into evenly-sized pieces. Stack fruit, vegetables and tofu/shrimp on skewers. 
3. Once assembled, lightly oil, salt, and pepper kabobs before grilling. 

Hope you enjoy this late-summer dinner treat as much as I did!
