We ordered pizza. It was good. I was just plain not in the mood to cook.

The opposite here. It is 92F with a heat index of 100F. No breeze at all. And, it is 10:34PM!

So cold food tonight. A sandwich and potato salad for dinner. I made the sandwich from "scratch," with deli meats and other ingredients, but the tater salad was doctored Kroger potato salad (added spices and herbs).

It's August in North Texas. I don't go outside any more than I absolutely have to.

I have an old license plate that I can clamp to the lid handle on my Weber Kettle over the top vent if rain is possible. It keeps rain from going into the top vent. That's all you really need. The rain will cool down the cooking chamber, but you can just open the bottom vents more to get the cooking chamber back up where you want it.

Leftovers, again, but I did cook those rajas (and charred a few more chiles harvested today, to add to them), and froze 3 portions of them.

My gravy didn't thicken; Beef Stew turned out more like a Pot Roast......
