Grilled chicken kabobs are a recipe that uses fresh chicken breast and garden vegetables. Season them up, put them onto skewers and grill them up for an easy weeknight dinner.
Normally I wouldn’t post a ‘review’ about a grocery store. I think they change from one block to the next and it really has to do with the location and staff. Today – being my 3rd time in this particular store – I realized I had discovered the Pathmark where groceries go to die.
I am a daily grocery purchaser. I like things fresh and to use them. I don’t like $100 grocery bills and wasted food. ACME is expensive, but next door. The food is usually always good if I’m willing to pay the premium. Safeway, aka Genardis, is a little further away and probably just as pricey as the ACME but I’m finding good deals there now and then. I love my little ShopRite in front of my parent’s house, but I don’t buy a lot of meat, poultry or fish there. The Food Lion down the street doesn’t get much love from me because it seems like you need to be part of a gang to shop there. It’s this one Pathmark that’s the real problem.
This particular Pathmark is new-er (I’m pretty sure its only a year old), in a spot where a grocery store is probably pretty handy. It’s not in some horrid spot of town, but rather, a decent one. It appears to be clean. There seems to be living people working there. Why is this particular grocery store cut from my list? It gives me the heebie jeebies. The lighting is off. The food isn’t quite right. On one visit it smelled. There are never enough actual people in there. But really, if the grocery store gives you bad vibes, time to GTFO. Something about it just reminds me of a Hitchcock film. It’s just not right. So, after three tries, that Pathmark is off the list. Never again. I don’t care how convenient I think it will be, I’ll get my red bandana out and tough it through the Food Lion.
The creepy shopping trip didn’t slow down dinner production though. We had grilled chicken kabobs with some fresh baked cornbread, a much needed spinach salad and some noodles. I often forget how great a fresh good salad makes you feel. It needs to be a 5 night a week staple again.
Now that you’ve got that grill fired up and the smell of charcoal wafting in the air you’re going to want to have it going every day. Have no fear! I’ve got something for every night of the week!
