Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Grilled Chicken Skewers        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays

I figured out that there are 185 cal. in 4 pieces of chicken and 32 calories per teasp. of sauce. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Getting ready to grill the final two tenders

I love this grill pan
Don't ya love the marks?

This one is labeled and ready for the freezer

I covered it with the peanut sauce prior to freezing

         The peanut sauce that is served with these skewers is amazing. These were so easy to make and would be phenomenal for a party. They could easily be made ahead and then reheated. The chicken is skewered and then grilled. I actually just used a grill pan and they were done in less than 10 minutes. The sauce can be made ahead. I actually saved the remaining sauce to use with baked chicken, too.  This is a great dish.


Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         My gratitude for the veterinary staff at Sandwich Animal Hospital began with my cousin, Craig. He was Zoe and Zeffe’s vet and was a gift to me from God. He also worked with Willow and Sage until he retired. I continue to go to this Vet Hospital because they are a truly caring and knowledgeable staff. The three doctors give wonderful care for my girls and they have earned my respect and undying gratitude.

Memory Musings

         One of the activities I loved when I returned to Illinois from Florida was coaching soccer from 1980 – 1985.  When I began, I didn’t know much about the sport, so I researched and studied the pros, and created a successful program for 10 year olds. We won the championship for five years in a row. It wasn’t due to me, but to the amazing players I had during the time. I will say that my program was intensive and helped these girls become aggressive players who were very skilled. I loved the game and especially the kids. Soccer was a blast.
