Looking at this photo makes me wish I was making these again tonight. YUM.

A bee has been trapped between one of my kitchen windows and the screen since early this morning when Paige and Will spotted it. We have no idea how it got into the house, and I have no clue what to do to let it go without letting it in. Figures, since it’s a hot-as-can-be day. One where I would love to run barefooted across the lawn and through the sprinkler that is currently watering my newly-planted vegetable garden. If there was a textbook definition of “grilling day,” this would totally be it.

When it comes to grilling (or cooking anything in hot weather, for that matter), fast, easy and fuss-free are musts. I mean seriously, who wants to fiddle around with burners and long, drawn-out processes when the temperatures rise like this?

This recipe is all of that. It’s fast — the marinade takes seconds to make and then the meat just sits until it’s time to skewer and cook it. Easy peasy.

If you make this, serve it with some rice, a salad and another easy veggie. For hot and steamy days, the premade frozen rice available at many major supermarkets and stores like Trader Joe’s is a total lifesaver. I’ll be stocking up for summer.
