Kid-Friendly Kebabs

We celebrated K day with these really easy Kebabs. I cooked the meat ahead of time in a slow cooker and then cut up the veggies and broiled them. I seasoned the veggies with olive oil, salt, pepper, and grill seasoning ( I left the grill seasoning off the veggies the kids used to make their kebabs). We just added the meat at the table and I let the kids make their own kebabs. It was fun and a great summer meal!

1 summer squash, halved and thinly sliced
1 each, red, yellow and green pepper, cut in squares
8 oz mushrooms, halved
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved

Place all cut up veggies in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and grill seasoning. Combine with hands. Put veggies on skewers and put on broiler pan sprayed with cooking spray. Broil for 5-7 minutes, rotating pan if necessary. Add meat after done cooking.
