Grilled shrimp with sesame orange marinade
Roasted garlic cous cous
Grilled zucchini and golden squash

Hot tea
So, it's been in the 80s here all weekend (and likely will be again tomorrow). We've been taking advantage of this mini summer preview to grill! Yesterday we grilled eggplant and today we're grilling shrimp and our side veggie - zucchini and locally hothouse-grown golden squash (looks like a deep golden zucchini). This is a simple and totally summer-y meal. Once we get back into the low 60s (Tuesday), we'll feel spring-y again. We love meals like this - easy and completely dependent on the flavors of the base ingredients. We use a bottled organic dressing (Drews) for the shrimp marinade. It's very tasty and unusually low in sodium for such a product. Other than that, it's just grilling the shrimp, so no recipe today. Yum. What a celebration of food!
