Temp highs in the 90's today

Monday, May 10, 2021

So summer temps are here. I am always challenged by dinner when its so hot. I dont feel much like eating or cooking when the temps are so high as the long hot days leave me drained. I dont feel like cooking heavy meals when its hot and I usually struggle with what to cook. We have salads and that's fine for me but my husband is always looking for a protein to go with it. The girls are fine with lighter meals they eat whatever. SP recipes is helpful and this summer I will plan better and tell him to suck it up. Spaghetti, pot roast, short ribs and meatloaf will have to wait for cooler temps.

Have a good day everyone.

    I'm sure the 90s will hit us soon enough - hot muggy summer in the South
    Right now it's wild temperature swings. Crazy!

    glad were still struggling to get into the 60's.

    Maybe look for some plant-based protein for DH.

    WoW... that's HOT for April. Where do you live? emoticon
    When it gets that hot here in Ontario, Canada, in July/August and I don't want to cook heavy meals either, I encourage my hubby to get the BBQ going.
    That way he gets what he needs. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am also wondering where you live where it is so hot---and do you have A/C? ... I have a green salad for lunch every day---But if I do not add protein, I am hungry soon after. One thing I do in warmer temps is to get some things cooked early morning---even for dinner. Chicken tenders are great and don't heat the house, and even when I bake Quiche, can do in the morning and put in fridge until later. I bake all my rolls/ bread early in the morning, while it's cool.
