Hotter than H-E-Double hockey sticks here. I closed the deli two hours early because the air conditioning couldn't keep up. I am taking the deep fryer outside in the shade beside the garage and frying up some dusted chicken wings. We have a load of fresh cukes and beans from the garden so I may just eat cold veggies with ranch or blue cheese dip....

Gee RockLobster, our AC has been off all day. We are having two strips of pork ribs done in the slow cooker. With our appetites both way out of kilter, I doubt we will eat anything else except some asparagus.

Gosh I wish I had a Weber Grill for charcoal.

Hot as Hades here as well. We have leftover chicken wings, beer cheese corn soup, homegrown cherry tomatoes, and other various and sundry leftovers. If anyone goes hungry here, that is not my problem.

Triple digits hot here today, so dinner was something that required next to no heat preparation.

We had grilled pork chops, fried yellow squash, cucumber spears, fresh tomato slices, and iced tea. Plenty enough for a hot day.

Used the griddler for the chops and it only took a few minutes to fry up the squash. Gonna have to find something chillin' for the next few days because the weather report on the evening news was NOT positive in the "cool" department.

Sea breeze kicked in this afternoon, so down to the mid 70's by dinnertime. Brined bone-in pork chops, green bean and potato salad with a dijon mustard dressing.

Here's the swordfish in process. Tasted even better than it looks.
