I live in an area that reliably has HHH for July and August, but none has appeared yet, quite unusual......but not only that.....I am prepping to make a SOUP on Sunday.......imagine eating soup in July

we are having highs in the 70's and lows in the 50's with relative humidity around 40%

I love soups and make a lot of them, but usually only in the fall, winter and spring.

Yes, Ohio has had lovely weather recently....a real blessing the three times we have gotten in hay. Usually we nearly die in the heat and humidity, but this year has been wonderful weather to be slinging hay bales..

Katie E. My hopes are still with you. Home style porkchops? noodles? tossed salad? I'm there, and will happily mow your grass if needed.

I loves me some good pork, and the salad would just send me. I will work for you since Beth and Msmofet have not offered me as much...

I will in keeping with this thread, offer you a perfectly grilled strip steak, with grilled veggies (potatoes, peppers, onions, mushrooms) that will knock your socks off.

Just tell me the where and when!

Bob

Okay, I can go there. But you do have to have a rather nice menu. Since I offered strip steak, grilled veggies, and salad, you need to an outstanding desert menu.

That may be cheating (a little bit), but I like how you think :-)

I'm heading to Dad's shore home after work, so I'll probably just have some pub grub on the way there.
