Sweet and Spicy Chicken Skewers

Can anyone tell me where summer went?

How in the world is it already mid-August!!!! I feel like I blinked and we jumped from April to August in a flash! I am attempting to soak up as much of summer as I can before the weather turns and we are all bundled up in jackets and boots.

Though I have to say I am a bit worried that winter will be here sooner versus later. There seems to be a lot more geese flying overhead and the leaves are changing already. EEEK So not ready!

Ok, back to the real point of today’s post….these amazing Sweet and Spicy Chicken Skewers!

This recipe is perfect for end of summer barbecues and family dinners. So easy to make and they look amazing!

Chicken and Waffles with Spicy Dipping Sauce

This post brought to you by American Frozen Foods Institute and the Frozen Food Roundtable. All opinions are 100% mine.

Today I am super excited to share with you Chicken and Waffles with Spicy Dipping Sauce…..

One of the reasons I am so excited to share this recipe is that John made it! Yes my dear amazing Husband made this recipe and it turned out fantastic.

I asked him for his ideas on making a great appetizer just using what we had in the freezer. As we gear up for football season and holiday get togethers I thought it would be fun to highlight recipes that can be made with items already in the freezer.

We love using the freezer to stock up on food and know that we can easily whip something up when guests come over.

There are some great benefits of frozen foods that include not just being stocked up for guests and last minute get togethers.

To make the Chicken and Waffles we used EGGO Mini Waffles and Frozen honey barbecue boneless chicken wings that we had in the freezer. We also used some honey to drizzle over the top….

Chocolate Caramel Ice Cream Cake

Last week we shared the Crunch Berry Treats we made with items from the Albertsons Anniversary Sale.

This week I was challenged again by Albertsons to make a new recipe with items that are on sale this week.

I headed up to our local Albertsons this afternoon during the heat of the day with plans to pick up some meat that is on sale for a great price this week.

WELL….did I mention how hot it is in Spokane today? About 95 degrees when I headed to the store in my poor car that the A/C went out on this summer.

Soooooooo I kept finding myself in the ice cream aisle at Albertsons. No matter which way I turned I kept walking back to the freezer section and cooling off. I figured since I was there I might as well see what was on sale.

I found a great deal on ice cream sandwiches and whipped toppings. My brain started whirling as I cooled down in the freezer section and I decided it was time to make a delicious Chocolate Caramel Ice Cream Cake.

No oven needed and perfect for this hot Saturday in Spokane!

I stocked up on a ton of stuff while at Albertsons. The anniversary sale has some killer prices on things we use all the time. I picked up a couple loaves of bread for an upcoming recipe, steaks, brie cheese (just because it is well seriously delicious) and a few other pantry supplies.  Head over here -> Albertsons Anniversary Sale ad to see everything on sale!…
