Shrimp Kabobs with Roasted Corn

SHRIMP OVER ROASTED CORN

It has been very hot and extrememly humid in NJ. How has the weather been where you are? Today I’m sharing shrimp kabobs with roasted corn!

July and August in NJ makes me yearn for cooler days.

If it was hot I’d almost be able to deal with it but NJ summers tend to be so humid you can’t breathe when going outside.

Our two Dachshunds don’t enjoy it either. If you have pets how do they deal with hot weather?

Because it has been so hot ovens haven’t been in use. I know we have central air but when it’s this hot I can’t deal with the oven.

So what do we do, fire up the grill and make an easy recipe for shrimp kabobs and corn.

What I especially enjoy about these recipes is they are full of flavor and these are easy recipes for summer heat.

Are like me and love to grill? Actually if the snow isn’t too bad we grill all year.

First let’s see how to make these shrimp kabaobs!

  1. This looks so yummy, Cindy. It’s been horribly hot here, a good 10 degrees higher than usual this time of year. I hate to even get out to water the flowers in the early evening.
