Sunday Dinner Series: Grilled Tilapia & Summer Squash

Grilled tilapia with summer squash

Just like my late mother did, I prepare my best meals on Sundays. There’s something sacred about the planning, preparing, and cooking of a Sunday dinner. Maybe, it’s the tradition of families gathering together to enjoy a meal that makes it so special. Although, I wonder what my late mother would say about my cooking Sunday dinner on the grill.

As a modern woman, trying to stay true to my family tradition of a good, Sunday meal, I find that grilling satisfies my need to quickly cook an entire, healthy meal. I’d rather not labor too long in a hot, kitchen (sorry, momma!).
