So, with Memorial Day past, it is officially grilling season here in Western Washington!

My happy little butt has been grilling.......E V E R Y T H I N G!

Beef, chicken, pork, veggies, fruit, you name it I am popping it on the grill with a big ol' grin on my face 😄

My neighbors must think I live on the back deck!

But, as much as I love, and will eat the crap out of, steaks and burgers, Momma needs some spice once in a while. 

Marinades are the best way to get the flavah in there.

I use everything from wine like I did in this Merlot Marinated Flank Steak with Spicy Chimichurri, to Asian inspired flavors like this recipe for Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce, and dry rubs like this Spiced Coffee BBQ Rub, or my Basic BBQ Rub.

They all bring something different, and yummy, to the table.

But the BIG thing that brings the tasty is grilling over charcoal. 

Oh my, be still my heart 💞, my mouth seriously waters as I am standing at the grill just inhaling the amazing smell!

I have to credit Kevin for that great discovery.

I used to be a gas only kinda grill girl.

Not that there is anything wrong with that. It is easier to work with, and easier to keep clean.

BUT, and it is a BIG but, it doesn't bring the yummies like good ol' charcoal does.

So I put on my big girl boots and overcame my fear of fire. Well, the fear of lighting the charcoal. For some reason, I just had this huge mental block when it came to getting those coals going.

Silly I know.

I have some really weird mental blocks when it comes to certain culinary processes.

I can proudly annouce that I have mastered every one of them I have tried though, so I am batting 1000 gang.

Yay me 👊

Not that you need a ton of skill to grill up these bad boys.

UBER easy, like stupid easy really.

God bless chicken thighs, they are so forgiving.....and tasty 😉😋

I do have to admit that Kevin makes the best damn chicken thighs this side of.....well, wherever. However, he does use my rub and BBQ sauces so I am included in the mix there somewhere.

These kabobs give me a bit of that Indian flavor I love.

Have I mentioned that Kevin says he is not a fan of Indian food?

I am sure I have. Y'all hear me complain about his errrr complaining all of the time.

How is it that I got stuck with Mr. Complainer and Miss Picky Pants?

Where are my adventurous food loving peeps?

Oh, there you are! 

But, these are so mildly spiced that both of them love them and would gladly eat them again, and again.

A couple of things about this recipe.

You can adjust the spice level with the crushed red pepper. When Miss Picky Pants was living here we only used 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper flakes. But, now that she has moved out, we crank it up with 1 whole teaspoon.

That doesn't make it blow the top of your head of hot, but it does give it that little kick that we love.

Also, random thing, if you have a French manicure, don't freak out when it turns yellow from the marinade 😂 I did at first, but then I gave my hands a good wash, and scrub with a nail brush, and they were good as new. No visit to the salon neccessary.

Of course you could be smarter than me and just use gloves, but where is the fun in that??
