I love summertime, primarily because it’s grilling season. I’ve always been a fan of grilled food with that delicious char flavor.

I wasn’t sure what to make for dinner the other night, but knew I wanted something with buffalo chicken. I spotted the zucchini at the grocery store and was inspired to make these zucchini boats, which were everything I dreamed of and more. My brother suggested using potato skins instead of zucchini next time (which I’m all about), so keep your eyes peeled for that post! :)
