Lebanese Squash with Spicy corn salsa

Start the grill. Right now. Ok, ok I’m being demanding but these were too good and I’m excited to share.

I had the luxury of roaming around my dearest friend, Jules, garden a few days ago and it was beautiful. We saw baby peppers, kale, basil, beans, squash blossoms and more. Gardens are a happy place for me if you can’t tell. I still think my favorite childhood book   and movie is The Secret Garden.

Anyways, I’m off topic. Go figure. But I must hurry because you’ve started the grill and your coals are hot.

Jules gave me two gorgeous squash which I later looked up, to learn were Lebanese summer squash. So here is what I whipped up with those beauties:

About healthyeasyfoods

Food makes me happy. Fake food and chemicals being added to my food do not make me happy. I have a growing concern about two major things. 1. The quality of food. 2. Our choice of consumption of food as a nation. With this being said I can understand how an American lifestyle influences fast, easy and cheap to be the three magnet factors to food choice however I think we need to go back to the basics and remember just how easy it is to make good food, good for you without breaking the bank or spending hours sweating away in the kitchen.
