We do the usual
Salads, Deviled eggs, Checca and Salsa's are must have for myself .
I like to grill up some chicken breasts in advance. Slice them up later for panini's and bruchetta's.

We eat lots of D'mater sammiches, loaded with Dukes mayonnaise, and drink lots of ice cold tea... Then again, A/C is not optional here..It's must have....Old Ceiling fans, and high ceilings add to the comfort too. ~~~ Pretty much eat regular summertime foods...A gumbo is not out of the question at times however.

Goodweed's Refreshing Cole Slaw:

Ingredients:
1 head green or purple cabbage, washed
1/4 cup Miracle Whip Salad Dressing or equivalent
3 tbs. sugar or sucralose(Splenda, Alterna, etc.)
1 medium sized yellow onion, peeled
3 carrots, peeled
3/4 cup ice water

Use a food processor to simplify this job as the veggies must be grated. I use a hand grater, but only because I don't have a food processor and the slaw is worth the work.

Grate the cabbage and carrot with the coarse grater blade. Mince the onion with a very sharp knife by removing the skin, cutting off the stem and bud ends, then making thin vertical cuts (top to bottom), turn 90 degrees and repeat, turn onion on its side and make thin cuts. Voila, finely minced onion with no tears produced.

Combine grated veggies with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and stir thoroughly to combine. Taste, add more salad dressing or ice water to get it as juicy or creamy as you like (I like mine very juicy, yum). Chill until serving time.

This cole slaw will almost quench your thirst. You can also add things like broken walnuts or pecans, raisins, diced apple, etc. For a change in flavor, you can great in rutabaga, or chicama (silent C at the beginning of this word).

Some people would add grated black pepper to this slaw. A similar slaw is made with vinegar in it as well. The recipe I provided is similar to KFC cole slaw. Enjoy.

I wish summer lasted year round. Winter means the end of mater sammiches, something I love. I like them with may, warn from the sun and also with French bread, brushed with evoo and vinegar, salt and pepper. I could live on maters
Ice tea for me rest of them love diet soda yeesh or beer We have A?C but I hate the bills we get. DH just put in wonderful ceiling fans that we both love, what a difference they make. Sundays here are always active and food is king, I love my smoke and my s-i-l man's often. He is getting pretty good now all I have to do is convince him not to over cook pork
