{  Savory Patriotic Chicken Kabobs  }

I can't believe that it's already July. It feels like It was just June 1st the other day and I was counting down the days until my birthday. Summer is just flying by! With today being July 1st, we all know that The 4th of July is pretty much here! Which means, cookouts, BBQ's, parties, fireworks and most importantly remembering and being thankful for our troops!

Normally we always have a huge cookout for the 4th of July. We cook tons of food, have a wonderful family cookout and then set off fireworks. I think hubby's family is still doing a cookout so, we'll be attending that, but we (hubby and I) won't be having our normal big family cookout at the house because mom will be in the hospital. She's having surgery on  the 3rd and will have to stay there for about a week. :(

But we'll be sure to have a 4th of July cookout when she's feeling better :) To celebrate July and the 4th of July, Big Bear and I made Savory Patriotic Chicken Kabobs.
