Much like you could have fried an egg on today’s asphalt, you could also defrost berries!
Berries that turned into the most delicious snack to date!!!!!!!!!!!!
Frozen/thawed raspberries, milk and CVILLE CLUSTER! I’ve been out of the most wonderful granola ever for a few days at home and broke up a bag at work. Matt was not happy since we only had 2 bags left (he’s waiting on a delivery to make more) and I stole a bag from the customers! I NEEDED it!
We came on home – wrapping up a nice day for a Monday – and I’m not sure who was sweating more, me or this:
It was so hot that I had to strip down and put on nothing but a tube-top dress. My beach coverup!
SO hot that….we turned on the air conditioning! I took a quick look at the forecast and deemed a 100* heat index + a day spent a lot at home tomorrow and a thermostat that read upwards of 85* (excluding humidity) worthy of air.
Believe it or not, Matt fought me to leave it off, but now that it’s on I’m almost chilled in here! But I don’t regret the decision. That is until the bill comes! [In all reality, I’ll probably turn it back off when this heat wave dies down a bit]
We have become experts at the 20 minute meal!
Catfish, which I had frozen and thawed yesterday, smothered in some Cajun seasoning, pan-seared and oven finished at 400* for 10 minutes
And a grilled corn, tomato, basil and garden greens salad
Flavored with salt, pepper, olive oil (1 tbspish) and a dash of apple cider vinegar. I massaged the swiss chard with my hands to help “cook” it down a bit.
The last of my gross chai tea
This dinner was a fake-out: we really ate in the dining room in the cool new air! But I’ll do anything for natural light.
Time to chill with my book!
