August is hot! Darn hot! In fact, August a lethal combination of darn hot and humid! What to do? What to do? Keep things simple and by “things” I mean meals. Here are a few ideas to get you through an entire day of meals when it’s too hot to think:
Toss blueberries with yogurt and drizzle of honey and a handful of dried tart cherries and nuts for breakfast.
What about a simple lunch of tomato sandwiches or cucumbers with a pinch of grey salt and cream cheese?
How about something super refreshing like asparagus beans with a minty vinaigrette?
Throw some broccoli or zucchini on the barbecue next to chicken or burgers and pep it all up with some fresh, julienned basil for dinner.
Nope, I haven’t forgotten dessert. Fresh fruit over ice cream or sorbet with crispy, crumbled store bought shortbread cookies and a touch of creme de cassis over the top.
