I can't take credit for this one because it was Dan's idea to cut up the funny-shaped summer squash we got and eat it as an afternoon snack. My only contribution was recommending that he grill it rather than bake it to keep the house from heating up. The rest was all him.
The whole exercise was a reminder that keeping it simple can often be very, very rewarding. Some olive oil, salt and pepper and a few minutes on a hot grill produced a very tasty treat that we quickly devoured while standing at the kitchen counter. The summer squash was tender and sweet with some smoky flavor from the grill.
Definitely a simple summer pleasure.
