I definitely cook different in summer than winter. I take advantage of the better fresh produce. This heat wave really has me going. My kitchen is NOT air conditioned, so I do a lot of micro-waving and cooking when I get up in the morning. Tonight it will be a salad nicoise, yesterday a freind made gazpacho. I actually bought a couple of pork butts to make New Mexico Green chili, but decided to freeze them rather than add to the heat. Tomorrow it is supposed to be cooler, and then Thursday a freind from Hawaii is arriving and will cook ahi. I'm to provide rice and a veggie.

Aloha oe!

Watermelon is the BEST for pulling the humidity out of your body. and when it's icy cold, so much the better. I love it!

I also eat lost of salads in the heat, but tho my kitchen is not airconditioned, the ac from the rest of the house keeps it cool, and the downdraft ventilation moves the heat from the stove out quickly, so I can use the oven without too much discomfort. Tonight I'm making the Eggplant Salad I planned to make Saturday but was too over heated to think about! It's so refreshing, we often eat it as a main dish, but it's really awesome with some grilled meat or fish..
