At 9:30 this morning my twitter feed from the local Anthem News site told me it hit 105.3.

I have no intention of cooking ANYTHING in the house that requires heat.  Isn’t it enough that I made DH his waffles with fresh blueberries for breakfast?

He wanted breakfast sausage but I knew exactly what I was doing when he brought them home and I “accidently” put them into the freezer.

Besides this morning, he wanted bratwurst for dinner.  We found some nice turkey ones that were lean at Sprouts a while back, so I have them waiting for a pre-boil in some beer.  They’ll get crisped up on the grill along with some onion/garlic packets.  I’m going to go pick out some nice looking rolls to put them into.  They too will get warmed up on that same grill.

This is our second summer here in the great SouthWest.  My cooking “heavy” meals is just NOT in the cards.  DH wanted me to make kasha-varnishkas (essentially bowtie noodles with kasha that’s been browned with onions and mushrooms)but that just sounds too much to endure in this weather.

Honestly, if he’d agree to it-we’d be eating a LOT of cold salads until the evenings get under 100 degrees somewhere around late September.

My grandsons had the nerve to ask if we could make banana bread the other day (Aidan even brought a rather sad looking one from home to include in the smashing)for snack.

As my eyes crossed, I told them it would probably taste really much better if we froze them and then dipped them in melted chocolate.

Thank goodness kids are easy to please because even my usual walk is being cancelled until the thermometer gets down a might.  I did get on the treadmill, but I have to say that Lucky (who turns into a Jack Russell with excitement) looked at me through slit eyes wondering what the heck was I doing?

Next week is Dad’s Day-so those who are lucky enough to have your fathers-enjoy their company (we’ll be heading to OC to see mine!)and remember that your DH needs a bit of pampering as well.

This year is rather special for us-Adam is going to celebrate his very first Father’s Day!  We’ll have breakfast with our kids/grandkids before getting out on that very hot trip to Cali.

See you in a couple of weeks.

Love it
