Since cleaning DS's bedroom yesterday (it had become a storage room ala Hoarders) and moving in the double bed today, I seem to be plum out of energy and inspiration. If I cook, it'll be a quick and easy one pot dinner. Not sure what that will be just yet.

Ooooh, that sounds good! Pictures would be great. The hubby and I are making foil dinners with fish, asparagus, mushrooms, onions, dill and lemon. Maybe a little tarragon too.

Apparently when I looked in the freezer last night the cold air was so refreshing that it made me delirious. When I looked in there I saw a package of dried split peas and thought, "I'll make split pea soup tomorrow!" I've never made it and thought it would be a good idea. Then today the reality of the 100 degree temperatures with a heat index several degrees higher hit. There is no way I'm going to have soup bubbling on the stove today!

So, as of now I have no clue what we will be eating, but whatever it is, it won't heat the house up any more than necessary.

POst them here, I'll make it for you! It's 4 degrees on our thermometer at the moment and that's indoors!

Run an extension chord to your back porch and use your crock pot.

I think I could eat the dinner we had tonight all summer long. Macaroni salad with albacore tuna and fresh fruit.
