Scapes, Garlic Scapes

I was introduced to Garlic Scapes by my sister while visiting with her recently.

I'd heard of them, had read rave reviews on them, but had never seen them in my part of the world.

And I wanna know where they've been all my life!
Sigh.

Yeah, they're that good and that versatile. 
My sister makes some into Pesto, and the day we were introduced, the scapes and I, that is, she did them on the BBQ as a side to a wonderful steak.

The memories...

Sorry got sidetracked there. 

My adventure started with a visit to the Farmers Market.  I love Farmers Markets, although I usually buy way more produce than a sane person can eat in a week.  
I get kinda carried away.
However, since I was visiting and not in charge of a kitchen I could browse relatively unscathed.
There was this lovely big basket of scapes and my sister bought a bag for dinner.

She threw them on the grill with some mushrooms,
After tossing in a little olive oil.  And let them cook for a bit.
Then...
She added a few cherry tomatoes, let them char a little and served with an incredible Caesar Salad and some new potatoes, a steak and a baguette. 

I was in heaven I tell you.  Or at least my mouth was. 
This was so good, and I'm getting hungry for Caesar Salad, and since I got the makings for the dressing, I'll share the recipe for that in a day or two.
