the summer may be fading fast, but don’t put away the grill just yet, why not fire it up and make some chicken kabobs for dinner tonight? Kabobs are a quick and easy way to cook both your meat and veggies together on a stick whether it’s with chicken, beef or seafood.
If using wooden skewers, allow them to soak in water for about 15 mins, this will prevent them from scorching or burning too badly.
I like using cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and sweet peppers.
Cube boneless, skinless chicken, then sprinkle on a little pepper and any seasoning of your choice.
Thread chicken cubes and veggies onto the skewer.
Before placing the kabobs onto a high, preheated grill, spray them with a little cooking spray or brush with olive oil. Grill for approximately 10 minutes or until done, you can also brush on a little barbecue or hot sauce if you prefer.
You know me, I have to have a little something sweet, so for dessert I made Krusteaz Lemon Bars but with a twist, crushed Lemonhead Candy sprinkled on top.
Following the directions on the box, I baked the Lemon Bars then allowed them to cool before adding some crushed candy.
What is your favorite dessert? Mine is cake and ice cream…why…because tomorrow is MY BIRTHDAY!!!

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday
As we get older our bodies starts to change, some changes are for the better others not so much. The metabolism slows down as well as the digestive track especially if you don’t eat the FDA’s Recommended Daily Amounts of fruits and vegetables.
I love fruits and veggies and eat them everyday but I know it’s not nearly enough so I have to include vitamin supplements. When IVL Products partnered with Sverve I immediately signed up to be part of the campaign. I knew that I needed to add more fruits and vegetables to my diet and this would be an excellent opportunity in which to do so with All Day Energy Greens. Using the 2 week supply as an add-in to my morning Green Shakes and Smoothies would give me the boost that I needed.
I must admit that the taste wasn’t as pleasant as I would have liked and it made me a little gassy, but for what it’s worth, I was as regular as a new wound watch for 2 weeks!
I also liked the convenience of the individual packs this little green drink comes in because when running late in the morning, I would just throw a pack into my purse and dash out the door. Once in the office I would use my shaker bottle or portable blender to mix it in with juice, water/ice or just with plain yogurt.
The best part of the two week trial was that I lost 3 lbs without altering my diet or exercising! #winning

On Friday, my son and I went to Save A Lot, a grocery store that I pass everyday on the way home but have never stopped. They had some good bargains especially in the produce department. Tayair thought it was weird that we had to pay a quarter to get a shopping cart, but understood the concept when we returned the cart and got the quarter back. This is not a fancy store nor is it “ghetto” as some people posted on Foursquare but the price is right for certain items as shown below:
