Another scorcher today. Yesterday it got up to 108 degrees. Wowsa!!
Normally I love to cook, but when the temps get this high I don't have the
same interest. I can't serve salads every night because hubby gets tired
of them. We could go out for dinner, but I don't want to go out for
dinner every night.
What to do?
Looking through cookbooks ~ hoping for some inspiration.
Still looking ... wait ~ I know what I'll serve.
Oven Fried Sweet Potatoes
and Chilled Pineapple Chunks
Tuna Patties for Two Recipe
(I eyeball ingredients and seldom measure so bear with me)
1 can of tuna drained
1 chopped green onion
1/2 stalk celery diced
1/4 to 1/2 red bell pepper diced
1 beaten egg
1 tsp grated lemon rind
bread crumbs (I like Bookbinder's for fish)
Combine first six ingredients and form into two generous patties.
Dredge in bread crumbs. Brown in medium skillet lightly coated with
EVOO. Flip to brown both sides.
Then I make a sauce for the patties consisting of 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 1 tsp
of Dijon mustard. Put a dollop of sauce on each patty.
Canned tuna is the ONLY kind of fish David will eat. He always likes a
cold tuna salad, but I like to shake things up a bit.
Let's see. I could make some dessert like an apple crisp.
No ~ let's not get too carried away in this heat.
Ice cream at Fanci Freeze would be better.
Stay cool everyone!
Bentley loves to go to Fanci Freeze because they always give him
