Gussied Up

In the South, you know you are not supposed to leave your house without being "gussied up". In fact, it is a crime in the South to leave your house without makeup and you have to wear clean underdrawers because you never know when you could be in an accident. This Fritter Chick In Training obeys the rule. We feel the same way about these kabobs. Why have plain when you can have gussied up! What did your momma tell you before you went out the door?

Gussied Up Kabobs

1 envelope dry Italian salad dressing mix
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup tequila
1/4 cup lime juice
1 pound raw shrimp in shells
2 cups assorted fresh cut-up vegetables (bell peppers, onions, zucchini and mushrooms)
4 wooden skewers

Mix salad dressing mix, oil, tequila and lime juice until well blended. Pour over shrimp and vegetables in shallow dish; cover. Refrigerate two hours to marinate or overnight if you have the time. Remove shrimp and vegetables from marinade; discard marinade.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Arrange shrimp and vegetables on skewers. Grill kabobs 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, turning after 4 min.

Dropped by from SITS.
As another southern gal, of course you get gussied up. I laugh at the poor things at Kroger who didn't learn this lesson from their Mamas. Bless their hearts:)
