Tim, my husband, whom I call DapperDanMan (totally random, I know.. I'll explain the story behind that on a slow, rainy day.. let's juts face it, I'm a random person), is a touch on the picky side when it comes to eating.
I know. A good majority of husbands are.
DapperDan, yeah the guy that doesn't like peaches, wouldn't even go near a squash, until our friend Ben had us over and grilled killller veggies. They were SO good. DapperDan not only tried them, but he LIKED them. Shew. Ben: you are my hero.
Yesterday seemed like the perfect day to grill dinner. I mean, it's July. It's 90 degrees outside (and in my house, too, for that matter.. darn old houses!). The last thing I want to do is to sweat INTO dinner as I am making it. Yikes. Not good.
I picked up these GORGEOUS squash at Trader Joe's (heart you) and tried to think of a way to grill them that hubs would eat them, but that it's still healthy and something I would like!
I done did it.
