Carefully slide ingredients onto the skewer using lots of beef.

-zucchini-beef-red onion-beef). Repeat until the beef is used
up. Preheat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat, lightly coat
with cooking spray and place the skewers into the pan. Sauté

What is a Stitch Any Way?

You’re going to do it this time. You usually hate cardio, but dammit, you’re going to get better at running so you don’t hold everyone back when you eventually cave in and do a Tough Mudder.
