People. Um. It’s June.

Are you saying what I’m saying? “What?! When? How?” I knoooow…what the!?

BUT, with June comes white-clothes season! YES!!!

Ahem… Please don’t forget to double check that those white pants you’re about to wear aren’t see-through. Go near a window and hold the mirror… do you see some dimple action? Or granny panties? Change your pants.

I’m just trying to help… 🙂

Hey! You know what else?! Grilling season is here! Among other things, that means that Moms can take a break because Dad is in charge of making dinner! SCORE!

And he needs to cut the grass. And buy the beer. Aaaand clean the garage…

I’ll give him one day off; Father’s Day! I’ll even prepare his favorite – these Grilled Lemon and Thyme Shrimp and Veggie Skewers!

These shrimp skewers are seriously fantastic. This is my favorite way to enjoy some shrimp poolside, backyardside, above the kitchen sinkside… you know how it is.

These skewers are the result of my favorite fish marinade. In fact, I don’t know how you do fish, or shellfish, without lemon, olive oil, and some fresh thyme. Ain’t nothin’ better. Buhlieve me!

I have to confess about the shrimp. Yeah. Those are from Wal-Mart. Precooked and all. The day you see me shelling shrimp, or anything else that can move, is the day that will never, ever come to be. Ewwwww!! Seriously, if I had to kill my own food, I would never eat. No way!

And going vegan is not an option because I will be hungry, forever.

So. Go and get some frozen, precooked shrimp and do me a favor; let the shrimp soak up this marinade for a good 30 minutes to 1 hour, in the fridge. In the meantime, fire up the grill and keep it at medium heat. Shrimp don’t likey to be burney, m’kay? Good.

ENJOY!

    I… Are you implying us women are usually incapable of using grills? Or men are incapable of cooking with anything BUT a grill? What about us Moms who married other Moms?

      Hi!
      Omg, absolutely not! I’m SO sorry if it comes across that way. I said what I said because men love to hog the grill, BUT in no way do I mean/imply that us women can’t do it. Again, my apologies, please, if you took it that way – it’s not how I meant it.
