Does anyone have a favorite go-to recipe for when it's blazing hot and/or you just can't think of anything you'd like to cook and eat?

Once again, thanks for the wecoming greetings!
Hi and welcome to DC Kater.

When it's hot and I don't feel like cooking, I like to throw together a "meal salad". That's some lettuce and any other "salad vegis" I have and feel like using, some chopped up protein - leftover cooked meat, hard boiled eggs, cheese, tuna - whatever I have that appeals, some croutons if I have them, capers, maybe some olives, and some salad dressing or mayo. You could even toss in some leftover cooked vegis or pasta.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

Welcome, Kater! I know what you mean, I get the cooking doldrums when it's hot, too. Looking forward to soups and stews season!
