It's why I learned to make summer rolls. They are so yummy and good even when weather gets hot. :)

I love Paletas or popsicles...it cools the insides when it's so hot plus it hydrates you.

We're having 98 degrees today. It was already 87 when I left the house this am!!

Dinner tonight will be salad of watermelon, celery and low-salt feta over greens.Drizzled with balsamic vinegar and good olive oil.

For a protein pop, we'll open a can of King Oscar Sardines in olive oil and some crackers. no added heat in the Chez Julia kitchen today!

i have air as well, but the darn thing is not working. trying to get someone to find out why. hot and very humid here. i have leftover pasta salad and that is what i will eat. not really hungry at all. it is pretty much essential to have the air. when i do i just cook whatever. not so much baking.

looking for a no cook cheesecake recipe, to hot to bake the cake i had planned for sunday for dd b'day. maybe just buy a ready made. although kraft (i think) sells ready made cheesecake filling in a tub. it is good if a bit to much cream cheese taste. 95 in my house. doing nothing just drinking fluids and reading.

gazpacho is awesome in summer, with summer fruit and salad with charcuterie and cheese, and at most fresh corn...only takes a minute, or grill it!

Make sure your noodle pack is not flour+foodcoloring, cool down and frig quickly, rinse to separate prior to serving. Dipping broth, also chilled, is soysauce+dashi roughly 1:2. Condiments to taste, mixed into broth, are traditionally grated wasabi, ginger and daikon radish, scallion and shredded toasted seaweed paper.

Today's forecast is 116 degrees. Time for beer!
