The end of summer is approaching and the fall season is upon us.  In Texas though, back to school does not mean it’s time to pack up the back yard barbeques.  High temperatures, outdoor kitchens, and Fredericksburg’s peaches are still in style.   Sunday afternoons are the perfect time to think ahead, catch up on grocery shopping, and plan a menu for the week.

Fruit and Veggie Kebabs are an easy way to incorporate a nutritious side dish into every meal.  The Pineapple & Peach Kebob’s with Coconut Lime Drizzle are great leftovers hot or cold, and totally kid friendly.  Don’t be afraid to experiment with your favorite fruit and veggie on a skewer. We would love to hear your experience below.

Pineapple & Peach Kebob’s

1 Fresh Pineapple, sliced into 2” cubes or bite size pieces

2 Fresh Peaches, sliced into bite size pieces

4 Wooden Skewers

Alternately thread pineapple and peach onto a skewer until each skewer is full, repeat until all ingredients are used.
