July has arrived, bringing with it our first long stretch of hot weather. The 7-day forecast is showing 4 days of “hot” followed by 3 days of “sunny.” If you don’t have air conditioning in your home, that translates to “How can I make dinner without turning on the oven?”
It’s tempting to survive on cold cereal or takeout. Instead my plan is to create simple, satisfying meals without turning my oven on once.
Here’s what’s for dinner at my house this week:
Wednesday — Speedy Summer Hemp Power Salad, tortilla chips, Fruit Smoothies
Thursday — Fourth of July BBQ
Saturday — Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches (set up on the deck), sliced vegetables, potato chips
Sunday — Leftovers
