It was a beautiful day yesterday and I made one of our favorite grilled meals; Grilled Chicken Kabobs. I made a huge batch...I marinated 7 pounds of boneless chicken breast, 6 large colorful bell peppers, and 1 large sweet onion for about 8 hours. My marinade is simple and fresh using olive oil, fresh lemon juice, fresh minced garlic, fresh rosemary, Italian seasoning, sea salt and black pepper. By marinating most of the day, it produced the most tender, moist and flavorful chicken. The rest of the family enjoyed their kabobs over jasmine rice and I enjoyed mine "as is."
This evening we enjoyed the leftover Spicy Beef & Cabbage Soup. It was a perfect kick-off meal for the first day of fall. I decided to add a dollop of sour cream to my soup this evening...and it was amazing. The sour cream went extremely well with the tomato, beef and cabbage flavors and it was a nice cool contrast to the hot and spicy soup. I snapped a few photos below of yesterday's birthday meal as well as tonight's soup. Enjoy!
