Shish Kebob

We made shish kebobs last week, when the weather was warmer, for the sole reason that when we went to to the grocery store, GoatSpawn would NOT STOP STARING at the premade shish kebobs in the meat department. Even when I tried to move on to the next section she made me turn back so she could keep on looking at them. 

Shish kebob is Turkish for ... “pieces of meat roasted on a spit or skewers.” While they say shish kebab was invented by soldiers of the Turk tribes using their swords to grill meat over their military campfires, surely meat cooked on a stick over fire has to date back a lot farther than that.  Even marinated meat cooked on a stick must be an ancient technique.  

The red onions on the shish kebob came out really, really onion-y, but everything else was delicious.  And grilled corn on the cob is always a winner for everyone.
