Yummy Meat and Veggie Balsamic Kabobs

Whew - school is just around the corner for us! Today we hit the outlets for a few items - Colin is obsessed with his fave purchase - a fleece vest

Did I mention it was 90 degrees out? Which apparently means you wear your new vest with your swimsuit... Oh to be a 7 year old!

We stocked up on a few things at Under Armour and OshKosh (pants that actually fit my skinny-men, yes please!) Then proceeded to head home and swim for the rest of the day. Too hot to do much else. I cannot believe the summer is almost over - making the most of every moment we can until its time to head back to reality!

Ok, enough about my silly kids - I know you come here for the recipes and you don't want to miss this one. Get out your pen and paper - pin this (simply scroll over the photo to pin to Pinterest) or do whatever you need to - this recipe is going on your meal plan for next week. Trust me, you will not be dissapointed. Simple, delicious, healthy (21 Day Fix approved!!!!) - doesn't get much better than this.

My kids absolutely loved these - the meat got a thumbs up from everyone and the kids picked through the veggies for the ones to suite their palate. Use whatcha got - tomatoes, mushrooms, or eggplant would also make excellent veggie options for the kabob. Do what makes you happy - who knows what you might find at the Farmer's Market this weekend!
