If you’ve read more than a couple posts on this blog, you know that I write about food a lot.  I’d say Life in Green is half garden, half food blog.  The #1 reason I have a garden is to grow food and eat it (though not the only reason).

The garden is often my biggest inspiration on what to make for dinner.  Whatever its producing I try to figure out how to incorporate that into a meal – common sense, yah?  And sounds pretty easy, right?  You’d sure think. 

Sometimes its just a big fat blank in the ‘what’s for dinner?’ zone.  Thankfully there are tons of amazing food blogs and websites out there for additional inspiration.  So often I am in awe of food bloggers and the recipes and meals they develop and then so beautifully photograph.  These people are flippin’ amazing.  You can find a list of some of these incredible sites on my new “Links” page.

I’m completely humbled by these sites, as my blogging and cooking talents have a long ways to go in comparison.  But I do hope that Life in Green has and will give you some inspiration somewhere along the line – whether it’s what to cook for dinner or what to plant in your garden.

This blog is just a few months old and I’m incredibly shocked and thankful, that it actually has a nice little following.  I had no idea how this was going to pan out.  I’ll tell you though, I love doing this blog and am excited to continue cooking and gardening and of course snapping photos the whole way through.

So thanks for checking in…and how ’bout an idea for dinner?

Chicken Fajita Kabobs

Chicken Fajita Kabobs

1 whole chicken breast, cut in even chunks

2 T olive oil

2 T lime or lemon juice

1 tsp seasoned salt

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp garlic, minced

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 sweet red pepper, cut in 1.5 inch pieces

2 sweet banana peppers, cut in 1.5 inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, cut in 1.5 inch pieces

Mix oil, juice and spices together and marinated cut chicken in mixture for at least 1 hour.  While marinating, cut peppers and onions into equal sized pieces. 

Slide alternating layers of chicken, onion and pepper onto skewers and grill over medium low heat.  Makes 4 full skewers. 

Quick, easy and tasty.

Ok so I really want to know….have any of you made anything posted here at Life in Green?  Was it good? Awesome?  Perhaps disgusting? (it happens).
