Menu for June 28th – July 4th


Lord, have some mercy…
As I sit here on Sunday night, at 9 o’clock in the evening,
I am horrified to look at the thermometer on the wall outside and see that it reads
96 degrees.
9 o’clock. AT NIGHT.

So to say that I’m having some trouble coming up with menu ideas for this week would be an understatement.
Particularly because it looks as though this week’s high temperatures will be running between 106-110 degrees.
So let’s turn the oven on, right??
(and yes, I’ll skip on the pity party and not complain that I only have a swamp cooler to keep our home cool… 😉 )

Add to that, no one seems to want to eat anyway!
I managed to get an ear of (raw) corn into the boys, and a few pieces of melon
but anything else was met with a “No, thanks, Moma, I’m full.
Brian took 3 ears of corn with him to work, and didn’t think he’d want a sandwich to go with it.
So really, what AM I going to have on the menu?!
(Cos, um, I’M HUNGRY!!)
