IT Guy just fixed my grill for me...just in time for summer! And to reward him for a job well done, I fixed him a steak. And since I'd rather have shrimp than steak, I decided to make me some kabobs! I threw some kielbasa in for good measure...then spiced things up a little bit with some chipotle barbeque sauce. These were SO good! And SO simple! They only took a matter of minutes to cook since shrimp only take a matter of minutes to cook. Funny how that worked out, huh? Kielbasa is fully cooked...just needs to be browned. So next time you've got your grill fired up, think about these! They're yummy!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south.
