Shrimp on a Stick

Today I read a post by Kate over at Paved with Good Intentions where she noted that a friend of hers says anything is better when served on a stick. She made lemon shrimp on bamboo skewers that made my mouth water! I was already thinking about shrimp for tonight, except mine would be BBQ shrimp because I am still trying to use up the rest of the BBQ sauce from the night we had ribs. So I decided to have BBQ shrimp on a stick! Also, shrimp cooks really quickly so it fit right into my plan to get home and eat as soon as possible.
I just marinated the shrimp in the BBQ sauce for about 45 minutes then put it on skewers and threw it on the grill, brushing it with more sauce as it grilled.

I also wanted something easy for the side so I took some help from the store and made Rice A Roni Nature's Way Parmesan and Romano flavor. It was really good! I highly recommend it for a week night when you need to get something on the table quick.
