Pineapple & Ham Kabobs

I hope everyone had a great 4th weekend. Mine was BUSY! My little Sophie turned 7 Friday. I can't believe she's growing up so fast. Saturday her favorite person (my cousin Bethany) and I took her to see Eclipse and then she had her birthday party. I bought an edible image for her cake. Didn't it turn out cute? I think she had a great birthday :)
I also tried a quick and super yummy recipe. Ham and pineapple grilled on a stick... how could you go wrong? I love the fact this recipe uses precooked ham making it a snap to get from preparation, grill to the table. Enjoy :)

3 TBSP brown sugar
2 TBSP white vinegar
1 TBSP oil
1 tsp mustard
3/4 lb cubed ham (1 inch cubes)
1 can pineapple chunks

Mix brown sugar, vinegar, oil and mustard. Thread ham and pineapple on skewers (soak so they don't burn). Brush with sugar mixture and grill 6 - 8 minutes basting often.

One of my favorite combos; I've only recently been turned onto this combo for pizza. Love it! Your little beauty is so precious.

We to love the ham and pineapple combo on pizza. I'll be trying it as a kabob at my next cookout.

That sounds really good. Grilled ham and pineapples! I love making ham myself. I have collected quite a few ham recipes already. I think for this ham and pineapple kabobs, I'll be making a sweet and spicy ham to compliment the sweetness of the pineapple.
Love the cake, by the way! ;)
