Enough somber reflections of tempus fugit!
On to the food!
My garden is being especially generous this year with sweetly delicious yellow summer squash. I never bother with the dread zuchinni because I much prefer the taste of the yellow crooknecks.
Usually I steam them. Cut them into slices, put them in the steamer insert, and give them just enough time to tender-up but still retain a bit of chewy succulence. Too much cooking just ruins any veggie.
But there is another way to prepare them, one that I have used quite a bit this summer. The grill. Just slice them in half longitudinally, score the insides with a knife, sprinkle sugar on them (I use a sugar substitute), and plop 'em on the grill, round side down. Don't worry if they begin to crisp up a bit on the bottom: that's mighty tasty, too. This is an excellent way to use those fellows that are just a tad on the large size for the tastiest steamers.
Serve them as is. Slice them on the plate with a sharp knife. Even the bigger ones are tender and sweet and taste like "More!"
