Closing out Summer with some Squash Skewers #SundayFunday

Summer is not officially over yet and I know a lot of us still have our grills out so grab the last of that summer squash and enjoy it before your counters are filled with the delicious hard squash that we enjoy all winter long.

Renu of Cook with Renu is hosting today.  When Renu first announced the theme my mind immediately went to hard squash because, I must admit, we closed up the pool last week and my brain is in fall mode.

Then, my husband and I came down with COVID and were in quarantine for 10 days.  This effectively prevented me from getting to the store or farmer's market to buy any hard squash.  Luckily, I remembered that I had one more summer squash recipe that I had not yet shared with you.  

Let's see what squash recipes the other's are sharing today........
