"To Heck with it" Tuesday, July 16.

OK, so its not a Lazy Sunday, but I don't feel like cooking much for the family today. I'm heading out to an evening shift and its warming up around here. My "To Heck with it" meal is a loaf of french bread (from the bakery), and spaghetti sauce from a jar poured over some browned ground beef. They can make their own pasta.

Anyone else carrying on the "lazy" cooking week?

I threw cooked sliced potatoes into a pan with eggs, cubed feta, peas, cream cheese and herbs to make a frittata and served that alongside some salad leaves. Fairly lazy. It's too hot to spend too much time in the kitchen currently!

I'm with you on that one Katy! I have lazy everything right now, not just lazy bones.

I reckon tomorrow I won't do any cooking at all - I'll just "assemble" a salad around a little tin of smoked tuna slices! Is that bad?

I might buy a box of organic, baby salad and add some tuna and a mayo/sour cream quick dressing.

Hot as the hinges of hell here, with humidity to match, but this is normal for our region this time of the year. You practically need a machete to make it from one place to another outside.

I did my usual Tuesday marketing today and brought home some very nice chicken thighs. Kroger had them on ultra special so I bought a bunch.

Before I left I took out a container of some very, very spicy barbecue sauce that was leftover from some ribs I'd made earlier in the month. I put about half of it in a baking dish, flopped in 4 chicken thighs and poured the rest of the sauce over. It's now marinating. Thought about cooking these on the grill but, honestly, it's just too hot even to do that so I'll bake them in the toaster oven. Probably cook up a mess of hash brown potatoes and some sort of green veggie. We'll wash it down with iced tea and have almost the last of the butter pecan cake for dessert.

I hear ya, Katie! Hot as Hades here too. I bought some roadside stand corn, and I really want to grill it, along with a potato packet.

Thanks guys, BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, and potatoes it is! And the MLB All Star Game of course.

"Hot as the hinges of hell" I haven't heard that before. Thanks, Katie

Well, it's hot here, too, but the a/c works, so I'm going to brave it and make Greek meatballs with tzatziki sauce (I roast the meatballs in the oven) and a green salad.
