Oh, there are lots of stuff I make in the summer that doesn't require a lot of cooking on the stove/oven, which makes the house so much hotter.
Tuna, crab, or chicken (all from cans) salad (on bread or crackers or nothing), fruit salad drenched in liquor and chilled, bean salad, cereal, fresh mozzarella and tomato sandwiches on good Italian bread. Sometimes it's so hot we just have snack dinner, which is usually cheese and crackers, beer or wine, and fruit. Philip likes eggs, and they only take a few minutes on the stove, so he'll make omelettes or scrambled eggs sometimes, but I don't like the clean up when it's really hot.
I did have a fantastic workout this morning! 7 miles with 2 x 2 at MP, then upper body weights. Blather: the last few weeks have just been a whirlwind, I really need it to stop. The week traveling to Savannah and back kind of threw me off, and I was starting to get it back by last Friday when I learned that a friend and her 80-year-old mom would be visiting on Monday- so massive house cleaning, picked them up Monday night, did the whole tourist thing in NYC on Tuesday- Statue of Liberty boat tour, financial district, dinner at the old tavern where George Washington said goodbye to his officers after the Revolutionary War (very cool), saw the museum at the tavern which had one of GW's tooth and a lock of his hair (kind of creepy), got home late, didn't run Tuesday or yesterday, took my Dutch friends to the airport to go to Buffalo, turns out their flight was canceled last night because of storms, they missed the flight they were rescheduled on (
), and might be out on a flight tonight at 8pm. If they don't get on that 8pm flight, they will end up on the same flight to Buffalo tomorrow morning that I will be on. I never told them I was going to Buffalo. Things could be awkward.
Bonus: My baking skills are much better, and I do suck at grilling, but otherwise I'm competent.
