Teriyaki Pork Kebabs with Baked Brown Asian Rice

Did you all have a good Weekend?  I am sooooo tired, but happy with our weekend.

On Friday we helped at Grandparents Day at the kid’s school. They go all out for their special guests!

It was a camping theme, complete with a forest photo booth, tour guide, classroom time,  gorgeous lunch buffet and a singing show.  Destiny had a solo that my mom got on video for me, she did just wonderful!  I hope to get the video uploaded to our 4 little Ferguson’s facebook page by the time you are reading this.   Go listen!  {Proud Mom moment!!!!}  🙂

After we helped set out dessert, we booked it over to the church, because Dale & I were pleased to get to help co-host The Art of Marriage Weekend there with some friends of ours Friday and all day Saturday.

We had just under 20 couples come, some from hours away.  Family Life Today does SUCH a good job making this fun and light-hearted, yet moving.  They offer real stories about hot topics in marriages today and make it easy to facilitate, they walk you through the entire process!

If you find one close to you, please go! Whether your marriage needs a boost out of a rocky place, or is doing just fine, we all can use the encouragement!  And if you love it as much as we did, I bet you will want to bring it to your own church!

On to the food, because I know you want something NEW for supper, right?!  🙂

  Oh man, this meal was GOOOOD!  I wanted to find a recipe for Asian rice that you baked, in the oven, and when I couldn’t find one, I decided to just make one up using my own recipe for Baked Brown Rice, plus some Asian-ish ingredients added in. 

The result was delicious! And my house smelled amaaaaaazing while it baked. 

  Plus, these marinated pork kebabs were so tender they just fell apart in your mouth!
