one local summer, grilled up

For this evening's One Local Summer meal, we decided to go with some grilled chicken and squash, seasoned simply with some Two Sisters garlic powder and a little salt and pepper, more fried garlic scapes (like we made on Thursday), and some nice, fresh sliced tomato. The salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar that we used aren't local, but everything else was. We had some chicken in the freezer from a little farm we love in Deerfield, and some garlic scapes left from this week's Exeter Farmers' Market trip (the rest of the scapes are going to become pesto tonight!). The squash and tomatoes we bought at 2 farm stands that we passed by in our travels today. We're pretty simple when it comes to many of our summer meals - so we do a lot of grilling, and eat a lot of salads and raw veggies. This meal was tasty, and just the thing to wrap up a beautiful sunny New Hampshire day!

I can't wait to start grilling this summer - its a bit early for the veg we have here, but the days are coming - eggplant and summer squash have made appearances in the markets. Have you ever grilled your sliced tomatoes? That's also delicious, though one has to be careful with all that juicy goodness. Its more like grilling fruit (pineapples, peaches, etc)
