We’ve made it to the end of June and I still haven’t planned any summer cookouts or beach trips this year. Well, I take that back, I have planned a beach trip for August; I just haven’t been to the beach yet. Grilling on the other hand, not much of that has taken place this summer, yet.
We use to grill out quite a bit when we had a patio and yard, apartment living makes grilling a little more challenging.
While I love living downtown, the one thing I miss about our house is the patio. I use to love to sit out on the patio in the evenings, sipping a glass of wine while Thomas cooked up our dinner on the grill.
I would set my music up, play with the puppies and just enjoy the summer evening breeze. That is one thing I don’t love about living downtown. Sure a few of us go out and sit in the alley and chat sometimes but it’s not the same as having a place where we can relax and grill.
I’ve got my fingers crossed that our apartment building will fix up the area on the side of our building and add a few grills this summer. That would be fantastic, wouldn’t it?
I can see us sitting downstairs now with these Grilled Shrimp and Peach Kabobs on the grill and a glass of Jadot Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay in my hand because it pairs beautifully!
How many of you pair your wines with your food….or do you pair your food to your wine? haha
If you’re looking for a beautiful glass of wine to go along with these kabobs you’ve found the right one. A bottle of this Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay goes perfectly with them.
Now I know if you’re looking up at the photos, there is also a bottle of Beaujolais-Villages. I’ve been told, by a few friends that love Jadot Wine, that the Beaujolais-Villages goes amazingly perfect with anything that’s grilled.
But you see, I’m a white wine kind of girl so that’s always my go-to!
However if you’re a red wine lover, give the Beaujolais-Villages a try with these grilled shrimp and peach kabobs and let me know what you think of that combination.
But let’s get back to the Kabobs!
I’ve got just a few little notes for you!
These kabobs are simple to toss together and they do cook pretty quickly. You can cook them on a charcoal or gas grill. They’re also perfect grilled on a grill pan on top of the stove.
If you don’t have a grill or a grill pan, you can also pop these skewers under the broiler for a bit.
I do want to remind you though that since they are brushed with a honey based sauce, you’re going to want to make sure that you keep the heat to a medium. Don’t crank that heat up super high. If you try to cook them super quick because all you’re going to do is burn the heck out of the honey.
Look, no one wants to eat burnt charred honey shrimp. haha
So, grab a bottle of Jadot Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay, I’ll pour us a glass of wine and grill up some kabobs while we sit here and enjoy this summer evening!
