How to Have the Best Night Ever

Scott is a creative genius.
Last week, he told me an idea he had -
that we should have a kebab making family night.
The kids loved it!  
I cut a vegetable variety & drenched them in olive oil, a squirt of lemon juice & salt & pepper.
They picked what they wanted on their own sticks.
Cauliflower, tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, broccoli.

They were proud of their kabobs.
(So much so, they ate their veggies!)

And they repeatedly declared it the best night ever.

The meats - Teriyaki Beef & Tandoori Chicken.

It was a nice Sunday evening.

We ended with peaches on the grill, topped with vanilla ice cream, sprinkled basil.
(Don't be afraid.  The basil with the peach & vanilla is lovely.)

Everything looks so good. I love the idea. We might have to try it.

love it! We did this several months ago (probably right after we moved to this house) and a friend of ours just thought it was so odd. Told me over and over how strange it is to act like making food is such a fun family activity. But we loved it :)
We did it again on Memorial Day and had just as much fun.

Such a simple/wonderful/creative dinner idea! Also - I'm intrigued about the basil on top of the ice cream...
