One more sleep then we are off to have a dinner up at the Youbou Pub... we are heading up there with a few friends and there hotrods.. Hope the weather stays nice as we are then heading back to one of the couples place on Lake Cowichan for dessert.. They live right at Sunset Beach and it is truly a fitting name as the sunsets on the beach are beautiful... so here is hoping that we have great weather on Friday.

4 wooden skewers
1 (1 pound) fillet salmon  cut in chunks
1/4 cup barbecue sauce, or as needed
1 mango - peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
1 fresh peach, pitted and cut into chunks
2 thick slices fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
1.Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Place the skewers into a basin of water and allow to soak while you prepare ingredients.
2.Slather the salmon on both sides with 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce, and set aside.
3.Place mango, red bell pepper, peach, and pineapple chunks into a bowl. In a small bowl, stir 3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce with water, lime juice, olive oil, and honey until well mixed; pour the dressing over the fruit and pepper chunks, and toss to coat.
4.Thread skewers with alternating pieces of mango, red bell pepper, peach, and pineapple chunks. and salmon.
5.Grill the skewers on the preheated grill, turning every few minutes, until each side of the skewered fruit and salmon is browned, about 10 minutes.

I love these coffee and end tables... they are made from pallets that you can usually get free from hardware stores.. all you have to buy is some heavy duty casters and have glass cut for the top... you can have a lovely coffee table or if you stack a few on top of each other it would make a cool tv stand...I can just imagine them all painted a different colour.. if you have a skatter rug in your living room just take it to the paint store have them match the colours and make your tv stand, coffee table and end tables to match...
How Ikea..ish is this... Love them...Another option for the wheels as well is you find a tool box in a garage sale you might find it cheaper to buy the whole tool box and use the casters and then you can have a great cabinet that you can paint and put in your kids room to put his toys or even a dresser...Price out the new wheels in the hardware store to see what is more economical....
