Dinner Thursday, 5-18-2017 ~ No matter what, it's hot-hot-hot

No spicy food at our house today, but it's hot enough I might be able to cook eggs on the blacktop. Instead, I'll use a big pan.

When I grabbed bread for toast today, I found one tiny bit of fuzzy mold. Oops, aged bread isn't a good thing. We'll finish the bread tonight with an omelet (mushrooms and to-be-determined cheese) and a small piece of ham steak from the freezer. Some sort of mixed fruit salad later if I can find my stash of N-R-G.

What's cookin', good lookin'?

Grabbed a little chuck roast from the neighbor's freezer, and a jar of giardinera. It's in the CP right now. And of course I can't remember the recipe, so it's that along with some onion flakes, roasted garlic powder, and a tsp. of BTB beef stuff.

It is pretty hot up there -- hotter than here today. Of course, in August, I'll be wishing for 95 degree weather. I was in Boston once when it was in the mid 90s. It was in July, so it was well over 100 down here. People up there were not taking it well. My telling them it was 10-degrees hotter in Dallas did nothing to ease their discomfort.

Tonight, caprese salad, and who knows what else. I have fresh tomatoes from my sister's garden, and fresh basil from my garden. I'm not letting any of those tomatoes go to waste.

BTW, when it is really hot, I go easy on the proteins, and heavy on the fruits and veggies -- and cold beer.

Warm here, but pleasant - only in the high 70's. This afternoon's dinner will be a cold plate with pickin's. Assorted olives and a couple different kinds of pickles, sliced smoked gouda and a few crackers, a deviled egg, sliced carrot and celery, and cucumber rounds. Tiny little cup of ranch for dippin' for the veggies, and probably wine.

He's out of town.

We're "borrowing" his spare freezer, since DH pulled the door off ours.
