Every year Avril plants a small garden in our backyard. In limited room she produces a beautiful array of goodies. Even though it is a lot of work she seems to find joy and beauty.
This year one of the biggest producers is the Zephyr Squash. Like its cousin zucchini, it seems to grow from thumb size to baseball bat size overnight. It tastes even better than normal zucchini and is very lovely with it's green and yellow exterior.
In order to use up some of the bounty I concocted a special vegetarian sandwich. I named it the Grilled Provolone and Zephyr Squash Sandwich with Onions Three Ways (grilled white onion, pickled red onion and French's French Fried Onions.) A little balsamic reduction drizzle adds a sweet tang.
