Whats up everyone?  I decided to make a nice Mediterranean dinner and boy was it simple and delicious! This is one of those meals you can impress company with because the flavors pop in your mouth and it looks like you put alot of effort into the meal! These recipes can serve about 8 people so cutting the recipes in half will be very simple. If you make the marinade in the morning and have it over the meat for the day, it will taste even better. We used beef this time, but feel free to use the meat of your choice! If you want to have vegetable skewers, that works as well! The marinade will work regardless. Enjoy!
