I'm sure all of us have had one of those days when you open the fridge and realize some of the veggies and fruits don't look so sharp anymore. For those days, I think skewers are a wonderful way to use them in a creative and fun way. This happened to me some time ago, I had some bell peppers, golden beets, pineapple and avocados that were all ready to be used asap. So, I just whipped up some fast honey soy marinade, skewered them together with shrimp and the result was a much appreciated and tasty dish. So go raid your veggie drawer and make some skewer magic!
