I'll probably end up grilling since it's going to be brutally hot and humid here. If it gets real bad then I might just get take out. I want to try a recipe I saw in Rachael Ray's Magazine. http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipe/26987/

So if I grill i'll make those portobellos and some chipolte chicken.

That's a priceless picture, Corazon!

Last night it was so stinking hot that we just had cereal and ice cream. Tonight may end up being a repeat. If I have the energy I'll make chef salads.

It will be the first sweet corn of the season.

Normally, I am the type of corn cooker who would first put the water on to boil, then go pick the corn.........but with temps expected to be 97* and who knows what the heat index will be, I already picked it. Will probably fix an egg salad or pasta salad to go with

ditto on corazon's picture.

Stace, we are eating the same way you guys are, and in fact I had the exact same menu last night. HH skipped the cereal part and went straight for the ice cream entree. Probably will repeat something similar tonight, including your idea of salads.

This is getting ridiculous.........but at least the Edy's is on sale this week.

I was lucky enough to hit a farmer's market in Spokane, WA this a.m. and picked up some wonderful goodies!!

Butter fingerling potatoes
Sun-dried tomato, roasted onion & garlic bread
a lb. of huckleberries (yeah!!!!)
4 ears of gorgeous corn

Before I left, I took a T-bone out to thaw to split tonite, but even as much as I love a good grilled T-bone, it will take back seat to the farmer's mkt. goodies!!!!

I cheated, I went out with DH and his little girl (ok she's 21) for sushi, it was delicious. It's really cold here now, I think soup or casserole will be in order tomorrow. Daft weather.

Cold there? I think many of us here would love a bit of cold weather right now! It's a bad heat wave here. Sushi sounds great!

I have all kinds of leftovers we need to finish up:
2 charcoal grilled burgers (is 5 days too long?)
3-1/2 salmon patties
1 large grilled pork steak
homegrown tomatoes!

I also have more corn on the cob, but we've had it 5 days in a row, and I'm not sure if digestive tracts can handle another night of it, if you know what I mean.

Sounds like assorted sandwiches to me.

I was going to grill turkey burgers but its 101 on my deck right now and sunny, so grilling is out. I called my hubby and told him we are going somewhere for dinner, I'll just enjoy my glass of cold white wine until he gets home.

This heat is sapping my strength and my cooking energy!
