cooking from my garden - shish kabob and organic quinoa

I am back from my vacation, very happy to be home but missing those I love overseas. Being back home means that I am back in my kitchen! And seeing my garden just beaming with life I can't help but pick some crop everyday and try to incorporate it into my menu. Here is our dinner!

If you have your own garden, this is the best time to make a use of it! Here is what I picked:

cherry tomatoes
red beats (boiled and peeled)

Then I spiced up some organic chicken thighs. I used:

garlic salt
oregano (my all time favorite spice for grilled chicken)

The kids helped fill up the skewers with the ingredients (which helped them practice pattern as well ;-))

At this point I started to boil the quinoa according to instructions.

I placed the shish kabobs on a grill and after about 4 minutes I rotated them.
