Do you have a griddle, wok, grill, or crockpot? That’s what we live on in the summer

@Corilee13: Im at work and we just had a luau where someone made some shrimp with citrus salsa. I dont know how exactly they made it but it was SO good. It seemed pretty simple and was served cold.

I feel you!  We don’t have central air and I am NOT cooking over a hot stove anymore. I can’t take it.  So for tonight I’ve already pasta salad.  Later on it’s corn on the cob and heating up sliced roast beef for sammiches.   Hey, it’s easy and quick! 😀

A few crockpot recipes.  Not sure what you two like and care to eat, but they’re ideas. I’ll keep an eye out for some more.

What do you eat often?  I can get extremely bored with food too.

I’m a big fan of “salad” dinners (we don’t have AC either!).  3 bean salad is always a good standby, no cooking required.

Another favorite, if you can make it enough in advance to chill, is my orzo-feta-pine nut salad.  Here’s the recipe, in case you’re interested.

  • 1 lb orzo
  • 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1¼ cups crumbled feta (~6 oz)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced scallions

Cook orzo in a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water, then drain well.

Whisk together lemon juice, oil, and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl, then add hot orzo and toss.  Cool orzo, then toss with pine nuts, feta, and scallion greens.  Season with salt and pepper. 

Cooking Notes:

Toast pine nuts in a shallow baking pan in a 350 degree oven until golden, 5-10 minutes.
