This summer has definitely had more rain than usual in the Rockies. Luckily, we finally have had some sunshine! My plants are just as happy about it as I am; especially my basil. I have four basil plants, two opal and two sweet basil, and they have gotten HUGE! I keep them potted indoors, since it is so cold up here at night. They love water and sunshine, but other than that are pretty low maintenance. If you aren’t growing your own herbs, you should try it! It is so easy and nothing beats fresh herbs on your food, especially when they don’t cost almost $5 for a package.
I have been adding fresh herbs on everything this summer. These skewers are great for summertime grilling. BUT, if you are like me and don’t have a grill, have no fear. I simply used my broiler in my oven to get a nice charred edge on the skewers. Be sure to put fresh herbs on the skewers after cooking, to prevent burning your basil. The skewers over at A Family Feast inspired me on these ones. You can add whatever veggies you’d like to your skewers. I would recommend something like zucchini or squash (they are in season too!).
