Tornado Squash

I’ve tried grilling twice this year. The first time, it rained. The second time, it rained hard, with lightning storms and a tornado warning.

I grilled anyway.

To be honest, I knew the tornado wasn’t heading our way, because #1 S-I-L is the King of Weatherwatchers, and he would have let me know. So I just rolled out the awning, set up underneath, and eventually got the applewood charcoal to flame on.

We had some local brats from the farmers market and some yellow squash. Here’s how I did the squash:

Cut medium yellow squash in half. Make slits in the outer skin, not going all the way through. Stuff the slits with fresh herbs, rub all over with olive oil, and season to taste.

Grill over indirect heat for about 20 minutes, moving to direct heat to char, if desired.

We were very happy with the results.

I’m posting at Fatal Foodies about my grill event when it merely rained a lot.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone ignores a warning.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
