Finally A Meal We Could All Agree On

Thanks to Lobel's for inspiring today's post and sending us dinner!

Sometimes I am downright ashamed of myself when I serve my family dinner. On an average day my son is eating chicken nuggets, my husband and I are an afterthought. Feeding the kids is a quite a chore on its own most of the time.  It is not that I don't want to feed awesome meals that everyone is thrilled with daily, goodness, I sure do try to expose my kids to new foods and I daydream about everyone sitting down to eat the same meals with little to no fussing involved, but I admit, a miracle worker or expert chef I am not.

However I had a taste of a daydream a few weeks ago. Lobel's sent my family a sample of their Beef Kabobs and dinner was easy, delicious and well received by everyone.

Let me tell you a little more about Lobel's Beef Kabobs before I tell you about this once in a blue moon dinner experience for my family.

Lobel's Ready-Made Beef Kabobs are not just meat cut into cubes. They're hand-cut into cubes, then threaded onto wooden skewers. Lobel's Ready-Made Kabobs are ready to grill or broil practically right out of the box—just bring them to room temperature first. 

Choose our seasoned beef kabobs with flavors of oregano, garlic, black pepper, and olive oil for the fastest kabobs ever. Or choose our unseasoned beef kabobs and simply coat with sea salt, pepper, and olive or marinate before grilling or broiling.

We were planning to have macaroni and cheese with salads on the day that the Kabobs arrived. (Confession? A favorite dish of mine because I put it in the crockpot and walk away... While I like it, and don't mind having leftovers for like 3 days, my family doesn't agree. They groan every time I make it.)
No one mentioned dinner, until I pulled out the indoor grill. The smell of meat cooking brought them inside and hopeful. Could it be? Is she cooking meat?


So, we still had mac and cheese with salads, but we also had these amazing Lobel's beef kabobs. They were so easy to cook,  other than heating up my grill there was no preparations to deal with. I opened the package, placed them on the grill, and served them. I cooked them for about 3 minutes per side. So, technically within 6 minutes my family had an amazing meal. No one complained during dinner. The kabobs were perfectly seasoned, the meat was of an exceptional quality. It made something as simple as beef kabobs into more than that.  While the meal was not fancy, it was well liked by everyone, including my very picky son. For that I am a grateful. Who would have thought that I would get a taste of my daydreams coming true by feeding my family beef kabobs?
