The Great Veggie Experiment:8-ball squash!

Saw this fun sign at the store:

Cute little thing, isn’t it?

Turns out the 8-ball squash is a variety of zucchini.  I keep getting fooled by that LOL!  The shape just said “Grill me!”.  So I sliced it up, brushed with oil and S&P and put it on the grill.

Came out nice.  The larger diameter kept the pieces from falling through the grill.

It looked like a zucchini inside, but not quite as watery and more firm.  It had a delicate, almost buttery flavor and I loved the grill.  Not sure if I will get this again, as it is more expensive that regular zucchini, but fun to try.  And it was from a local farm!
