I am totally hating life right now. This no AC thing should be ILLEGAL.

I'm so pizzed off at the weather I can't even eat. No clue what to do for dinner tonight. There are a LOT of salads in my future though, I know that. Throw some mandarin oranges in your salad Munchy and I might steal a bowl...that sounds really good.

I know - it gets hot and I just want to sit around and do nothing. Making that salad almost didn't happen, but I did make dinner for the little one, so making something for me was smart.

My allergies are driving me nuts. I'm living in a cloud!

I guess I'm the only one who loves the heat. I would take all of yours if I could! : )

Tonite I think dinner will be leftovers. Boiled dinner (ham,cabbage,potatoes,carrots), pesto pasta, tilapia. Yes, quite a combo.

I'm definitely living in medicine fog land. Allegra-d, save me! I'm going to the grocery store today just to get some relief from the humidity.

I "like" heat, but we went from moderate to sticky humid in a day. I slept terribly last night and I'm all sinus-y. Of course my AC isn't installed yet.

I actually don't mind the heat much if I have a place to get some relief. Moving to a house with no AC has given me a new level of hate I never knew I had. It's complicated because of the set up of our place, but the bit of AC we do have isn't adequate and there isn't anything else we can add. It's ok though, I'm thankful to have a roof over my head and I love the area we live in so I chant that while I'm passed out on the floor with a cold rag on my face. And one sweet, sweet day I'll appreciate a home with AC all that much more. Until then, I shall ***** cause heat makes me cranky.

Leftover baked spaghetti, basil corn and this amazing cheese bread I wish I had never tried the recipe for. I always have trouble with yeast bread, but this one is way too easy. Lawd help me, carb hell.

Oh, and sweet tea, y'all.

Tonight was nothing special, but this was last night!



Grilled rare tuna with pineapple salsa, salad with homemade avocado dressing, and Sam Adams summer ale.

I made shrimp and grits for the first time. It was pretty darn good.

We had ham, baked potatoes, and some asparagus from our friend's garden. The asparagus was SO delicious! I don't think I'll ever be able to eat it from the grocery store again!

Same thing last night, but I did make Asian turkey mini meatballs and stuck them in the fridge.

I'm eating a piece RIGHT NOW.

Oh. My. WORD.

Just imagine a full mouth and the reply "This is yummy" (sounds more like thith ith nummy since he had his face stuffed) when I asked my hubby how it was.

I never lean toward lemony desserts for some reason, but I'm so glad I made this. It's to die for, easy as hell and now me and my kitchen smell fantastic.

Thank you, Saria!

Conchiglie with brandade, peas, and New Zealand spinach. More using up what I have (brandade, frozen peas) combined with something from the market in the spinach.
Cream puffs with dulce de leche filling for dessert (a bit of my batch of dulce de leche with whipped cream folded in).
