The Craziness! With super easy and delicious shrimp!

Ok.  My time has been completely occupied by children since school got out! I am also in the process of moving and won't be in the new house until the 1st of August...needless to say I haven't had time to blog.  I'm taking plenty of pictures and coming up with some AMAZINGLY good food, but not blogging about it.  Sorry 'bout that.  We have had sunshine pretty consistently here in the pacific NW and so I have been utilizing my grill a lot.  This past weekend we had an impromptu BBQ with some good friends of ours and LOADED the grill with lots of delicious food!

That folks is one heck of a meal!  We had shrimp and pineapple skewers, vegetable kabobs, chicken backs, shrimp scampi, and sweet potato fries wrapped in bacon (not pictured).  All of this was very easy to throw together and everyone was happy!

The shrimp and pineapple skewers really surprised me because the shrimp took on the flavor of the pineapple!  All we did was toss the shrimp in some olive oil, salt and pepper and skewered them with fresh pineapple.

We also tossed the vegetables in olive oil, salt and pepper prior to skewering.  We had onion, red and yellow peppers and zucchini.

The shrimp scampi was just shrimp in butter and a little bit of water with some salt and pepper added to it.

The chicken backs were just seasoned with salt and pepper, but we made a delicious mango salsa to eat it with.

Mango Salsa
2 fresh mangoes
3 roma tomatoes
1/2 sweet onion
1/2 lime

Dice the mangoes, tomatoes and onion and toss in a bowl.  Squeeze the lime over the mixture.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and allow to sit at room temperature for about an hour. Enjoy!
