Beef and Veggie Skewers

Easy lunch with grilled beef and roasted veggies

I think skewers are awesome but for some reason I never make them often enough. Wife told me this dish is only good during summer but last week when I made them, she was stuffing her face picking them up right from the grill. Well… not really, but I definitely was very enthusiastic. The good thing about this recipe is… there is no recipe! You can make them with anything you want and like. The only tip here is, if you use wood sticks, make sure you keep them in water for an hour or more, so they don’t burn out on the grill. That’s about it. I hope you all like my picture.
