"Coexistence... what the farmer does with the turkey - until Thanksgiving."
Mike Connolly, Writer

The refrigerator light goes on...

These skewers are perfect for a weeknight meal. They take about 10 minutes to prep and will keep for about 48 hours marinating in the refrigerator. After that they only take about 15 minutes to cook.

Marinate

To add flavor or tenderize a food, it is often immersed in a seasoned liquid for a period of time. It is usually covered and refrigerated during the process. Most marinades are made with acidic ingredients (citrus juice, vinegar, wine, etc.) because the low pH helps break down foods.

The acids can also react with the container, so foods should be marinated in non-reactive dish such as ceramic, glass or stainless steel or in a plastic bag.
