Today is my father-in-law's 92nd birthday. Yes, you read it correctly, 92 years. Isn't that just an amazing blessing. He is in excellent health, and no one would ever guess that he has 92 years behind him. He has been the best father-in-law anyone could ever hope for, and he has indeed been a blessing to me.
I have been cooking for a large portion of the day today preparing for his birthday dinner this evening. At his request, we are having shish-ke-bobs (or is it shish-ka-bobs?). I will be preparing several skewers loaded with steak, others with chicken, and still others with shrimp. The chicken and steak have been marinating all afternoon in my favorite marinade recipe of all. My sister, Molly, gave me this recipe when I was first married, and it has truly never let me down.
Lemon Pepper Marinade
1 tablespoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoning Salt
2 tablespoons water
1/4 cup oil
Mix all together, and pour over your choice of meat. Leave in marinade for at least 3 hours, and most of all, enjoy!!
