Ooh, I love a curry! Korma is nice and mild. Is that from scratch Kylie? Doesn't sound too lazy if it is!

Like the tweak on the daily Dinner thread title Kylie! Can't wait to see what you dream up for Wednesday.

My eyes know it's hot outside by looking at the thermometer (another one over 90 - does it really matter after about 75????) but I haven't a clue. Closest I got was running into the sunroom to open its windows before the heat really got here, then closing the door from the house so I can stay inside and still see the cooling trees. At least they look cooling.

We'll have breakfast for supper. All top-of-the-stove and really quick. Himself pointed out that we need to use the last of the now-flat club soda. Maybe margaritas or dark & stormies tonight...if it isn't used up by drinking it with a lime wedge. Too hot for alcohol?

I'm staying lazy, heating up planned overs from the freezer. No cooking 'till there's more room in the freezer.

Tonight is leftover tamale pie.

So something was "tweaked". What a relief! I had no clue what was going on there for a bit! (Nothing unusual there of course.)

Katy, I made a salad today with some leftover rotisserie chicken and some prosciutto with mixed greens, avocado, tomato, red onion and cucumber. All of them were already cut up and ready to go. So no, just a salad is not bad (or we both are ).

I'm actually not "allowed" to cook right now when I am alone. Thursday I was lightheaded from the heat and forgot a pot of boiling water on the stove. It boiled dry and started smoking by the time I got to the kitchen. The smoke set off my asthma and I am still sensitive and light headed so I have even bought some pre-made mac & cheese salad from the deli for my light meal tonight. So I am really playing it lazy!

That sounds delicious LPB! (Specially the avocado - I adore avocado - but it is so difficult to find properly ripe ones in Britain.)

As for burning things..... um... I'd love to say I never do that... but my particular problem is with potatoes.... I have set the smoke alarm off a few times with the pesky things boiling dry! (Honestly, is it MY fault if there is something more interesting to do than watch potatoes boil?)

Oops. I kinda noticed that, but then forgot by the time I got to the bottom of the thread. Yet ANOTHER Brain Burp. 'Scuse me.

Definitely not! I got away with it last night. With the heat we've been having I expect to pull off Dinner Salads a couple more times this summer. Go for it!
