The next way is to avoid using my kitchen. My kitchen easily becomes the hottest room in the house. It's the farthest from the AC and it's got lots of windows and lots of action. So I try not to cook in it. I do this by grilling a lot, using the crockpot, and make sandwiches.
So this week's menu is:
Grilled Cornish hens with green beans and cornbread (all on the grill)
vegetable soup (crockpot) with chicken salad pita sandwiches
baked beans (crockpot) with Turkey and swiss sandwiches
Turkey, apple, and brie sandwiches with leftover soup and beans
Almond butter, honey, and banana pitas with turkey wild rice soup (crockpot)
Turkey-presto wraps with leftover soup
How do you beat the heat?
