I have quickly adjusted to our “dry heat“.  NOT.

Cooking, my passion, has become an “after” thought of late.

Even my grill-loving hubby is not thrilled about standing out in 110 at 6 p.m. and putting my prepped food on his pride and joy for dinner.

And that really nice oscillating mister fan-well let’s just say that when it touts that it lowers the temp of the surrounding area by 15 degrees-you do the math.

Yes, I still have to make food-but I’m looking for the easy way out until our “cold snap” (read that as when our temps dip below the triple digits in late October)occurs.

Take this last week.  I’ve had hubby grill salmon and chicken which I put over True Foods delicious kale salad. We had it with some grilled whole wheat artisan rolls from Safeway.

The kids came over and we actually made the trek to our favorite caterer and served Costco chicken with my nice and chilled Cauliflower, white bean, spinach and feta salad.  We had strawberries for dessert.

Our new found friends came over-again, dh broke down and grilled some ribeyes and some fresh corn.  Our friends brought a nice salad.  For dessert?  brought out some brownies that Dylan and I made (espresso), raspberry sorbet and had some cool whip for those who wanted it.

No, we didn’t even want iced coffee to go with it.

While hubby had his “late” nights-I stuck with eating leftover salads.  I sent the same in his lunch box.  

Yes, I’m taking the easy way out lately because really-It’s too darned hot.

    • We had that kind of heat last summer, and it does truly get just too darned hot to cook.

      We’ve got the hot and humid weather here now and it wilts me.  And wouldn’t you know, today is the day my beets were ready and needed to be pickled.  Plus there’s a big church pot-luck dinner tomorrow that I had to make something for......  ugh!

    • I agree, it is just too uncomfortable to cook in the heat.  We are also experiencing heat and humidity on the East Coast, so yesterday I made chicken sandwiches from a prepared chicken (bought at the store), piled on the avocado, lettuce, tomato, cucumber on onion rolls and a cold macaroni salad...everyone was happy.estatic
