Love it

I love trying new foods and places and attempting to replicate the dishes at home.  It’s fun and DH and I enjoy the results, for the most part.

But-when you‘re on constant “heat warning” cooking is NOT what you really want to do.  At all, for almost every reason.

Take last night-I took out a package of ahi tuna, seared it on a pan for a couple of minutes on each side and slid it on top of some mixed Spring greens, tomatoes and mini-bellas.  Our last part of the meal?  I had some pumpkin cranberry bread left from the boys afternoon snacks for the week.  I serve it with peanut butter and some type of applicable veggies and more water.  

Water is a constant must out here.  Without it we will perish.  

Have you heard that we Arizonans are in week #who knows of extreme heat warnings?  Last night we almost had one of our monsoons-but I think the almost tornado blowing through blew the rain over us and just left us with 112 degrees, hot wind and painful humidity.

I do NOT feel like doing much of anything involving my kitchen.

This morning had me just trying to get through toasting our double fiber bread, pitting cherries and making sure that there was a full container of water in the Keurig.

Luckily for me, DH is happy with whatever lunches I put in his box and doesn’t mind that I’m down to making our dinners “tasty with a side of ridiculously easy“.

Heat makes me blasé.  And I don’t care.

Love it
