squash, before and after

We had read Virginia's post that included mention of the baby summer squash that she picked up at the Dover Farmers' Market last week, and so we were excited to head to the Durham market this afternoon to see what we would find. Sure enough, we arrived in time to get three little summer squashes - but we were too late for kohlrabi, strawberries and peas... they sold out within minutes of the market opening. Better luck next week!

We brought our cute little squashes home, and grilled them up. YUM! This would be one of those instances when the "ready to eat" picture doesn't really do the dish complete justice - but I included it anyway, as it really was a fabulous side dish for our early dinner today. So here's organic, locally-grown summer squash, before... and after...

We don't have summer squash in yet, but I will save this idea for when it comes in (I know it will soon arrive in droves!), grilled *anything* is almost always better!

Grilling is definitely one of our favorite ways to cook veggies - especially summer squash and zucchini. A little salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and a little olive oil (so they don't stick) - a couple minutes on the grill - and I could eat them every day!
