Last night it was a salad nicoise. When it really heats up, I'll cook up the starch part of the meal first thing in the morning. Then I'll make a salad from it (pasta, potatoes or rice) at dinner time. I also short-cut cooking times by using the microwave oven. I'll do things like micro-bake potatoes until they're almost done, then fry them or oven bake them at high heat for a few minutes. Really cuts down on the heat in the kitchen. My kitchen is NOT air conditioned, so these shortcuts really help. Of course the very best is to cook outside.
