Mustard Grilled Chicken & Sausage Skewers
As summer draws to an end, I want to post one more skewer recipe for the grill. Mustard Grilled Chicken & Sausage Skewers could make for a full meal on their own—with vegetables, meat, and corn—but we like to serve these with a little rice on the side, too. Now, Rob gets excited for any dinner with smoked sausage, and Cooper loves to hear we’re having corn-on-the-cob. But I think that the marinade makes these skewers.
With the right seasoning, simple meals become extraordinary. That’s why I like to spend time thinking about yummy seasoning blends to have on hand for those days when time or brainpower are running low. And although this marinade isn’t something that keeps on the shelf, it comes together quickly and the work for this meal is completed earlier in the day. (And it’s super delicious!) When dinner time rolls around, throw them on the grill and eat. Easy as pie.
Time to say farewell to summer. Skewers are my favorite tribute to the season. I can feel the excitement surging within myself—I’ll admit that I favor fall the most of all seasons. But I do love summer for the opportunities to cook and enjoy so many meals outside after cold winters and wet springtimes. I know I’ll be longing for summer in just a few months when the temperatures drop drastically, but right now I’m satisfied with a season well done. And I’m looking forward to the comfort food of fall. Chili and gumbo and pot roasts, oh MY!
Happy summer, everyone! I hope it’s been a good one.
