Grilled Zucchini & Butternut Squash

I love crumbled thyme, oregano, sage or, surprisingly enough, dried mint with squash.

If you want a bit of kick (and I often do) add a few pinches of ground chilis or red pepper flakes.

Quarter a butternut squash, scoop out the seeds (keep the skin on). Chop up 3 to 4 garlic cloves, sprinkle with about 1 tsp. kosher salt and mash into a paste. Mix garlic with about 1 tsp. ground cumin then add about a tablespoon of olive oil. Rub this all over the flesh of the squash. Grill. Yum.

My favorite for zucchini is mint. And because the flavor of zucchini is quite delicate, I think parsley is also a good match.. or a kind of gremolata-like mixture.

For squash, rosemary and thyme or any of the wintery spices.. nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, cloves.. Also very good: chipotles.

Deadheads are kinda like people who like licorice. Not everybody likes licorice, but people who like licorice, *really* like licorice!
