Love it

After what was considered to be one of our coolest springs in the last decade-summer has arrived along with our traditionally excessive heat and record breaking temps.

Too hot to cook in or out doors.  Ugh!

Last week we hit 115 five days in a row.  My friends and I have begun walking at the ungodly hour of 6 a.m. and still finish up soaking wet.  Thankfully (yeah, right)both of my orthopedics informed me that walking 5 days a week is way too much for my continually degenerating joints and discs.

I was told to do water aerobics.

I’m down with that!  My “coffee” girlfriends and I went to our first class on Friday.  It was fun, harder than I thought and cooling.

As for cooking? Meh.  Yesterday’s dinner menu was a simple and quick grill of turkey sausage, a medley of zucchini, carrots and onions and corn on the cob.

Tonight’s menu:  baked tilapia (this fish is just too thin to grill-although if it gets much hotter in the house, I might put it on some foil and then let the grill do the work!  Found some fun chipotle tortillas while marketing the other day, so we’ll be doing some fish tacos and a fresh sweet slaw to balance the spicy tortillas and my chili/panko crust on the fish.

Desserts around here have become nothing more than some cold fruit or sorbet-and that is okay.

Hope your summer is going well!

Love it
