Sausage & Garlic Kabobs

I realize this is kind of a summer recipe, but let me remind you my friends, it's still over 100 degrees here in Phoenix.  For those of you who live somewhere getting fall weather, I'm jealous, but consider this post a tribute to those of us still sweating.  A dear friend of mine made these while we were on our friends summer vacation and they were delicious.  While I was visiting another friend, who I lovingly refer to as Dirty, we decided to make them.  She's not a huge cook, but these are simple enough that she stuck through it!  I even was able to snap a picture of her, much to her objection.  Read on to see it :)
Soak 10 skewers in water while you prepare the veggies.
Cut up one red pepper, green pepper and yellow pepper into large bite pieces.  Cut around 12 mushrooms in half.
Dirty cutting things up like a pro! 
We also cut up some onion, garlic cloves and big chunks of Italian bread  Place all ingredients in a bowl.  Toss with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. 
Cut up Italian sausage into one inch pieces, or whatever kind of sausage you like.  You can use different kinds too! 
Alternatively thread the veggies, bread and sausage onto the skewers.  You can grill them or bake them in the oven, until the vegetables are starting to tender.
These are so awesome, and the bread and garlic really make these different and even more delicious.  Thank you to Chef Dirty for helping out and providing the kitchen! Until our next adventure ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!
