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