Grilled Zucchini

This recipe for Grilled Zucchini is one of my favorites for several reasons.  First, it’s a good way to use up the prolific zucchini of August.  Second, it’s mighty easy to make.  And third, it’s delicious.  Let’s not forget reason number four though –zucchini and summer squash are a healthy side dish for any meal.

Lately I’ve been serving this Grilled Zucchini with my Rosemary Lemon Chicken.  They make quite a summery pair, and along with a green salad comprise a lovely meal.

It’s been almost a week since my older son’s team captured the Colorado State Baseball Championships in a stunning comeback.  They were one strike away from losing the entire title –down by 4 runs in the final inning with 2 outs and 2 strikes against them and the pulled a win out of their collective hats.

We’re now taking a much needed break from baseball.  It was a lot of fun and we were lucky to be surrounded by the absolutely amazing families of the little guys on the team.  Thanks to all of the team families who ate the many test batches of goodies that I forced on you during the tournament!

I’m happy to let you all know that at 7:30pm (PST) I’ll be doing a book signing at theAvid Reader in Davis, California tonight.  I grew up in Davis, it is my hometown and a lovely place.  Hope you can join us if you’re in the area.

If you can’t make that event, I’ll be doing another signing on Saturday, August 7th from 12-3pm (PST) at the Davis Lutheran Church (Fellowship Hall) with the Celiac Sprue Association.  Hope to see you there!
