Hey hey hey, how's my best girlfriends!? I'm melting. We are now in day 5 of our lovely heat wave, and I keep getting texts from Mumbles about staying inside and drinking water. What a nice guy. So I think the theme today should be "ways to stay cool when you don't have central air". Mostly I've gone with hiding out in the ac room (aka the bedroom), but there are apparently others.
Superb FunDay: Nantasket Beach
Yesterday, Christy and I road tripped the 45ish minutes south to go to the beach. It was awesome and I'm only a little burned. Christy is not burned because she has more sense than I do and wore sunscreen all day, instead of only half the day. Should have listened to my mother.
Superb Salad: Asian Quinoa Salad
I'm currently very into meals which don't require lots of heat. This seems to fit the bill. I might make is now.
Superb Sit: Humongo Porch Swings
I think I'd be a little more inclined to be outside in the sun if I had one of these. Too bad my porch is too narrow.
Superb Drinkie: Strawberry Margarita Jello Shots
Although Straw-Ber-Ritas are delightful, these look better. The fact that they go in little edible containers (strawberries..) makes them top notch.
Superb Hilarity: Milkshake
My milkshake ISN'T WORKING. Why aren't there boys in the yard? Kelis told me that if I put my milkshake in the yard, it would bring the boys. LIAR.
Superb Sauce: Garlic Scape and Basil Pesto
I've been making a lot of pesto lately; my farm share has been full of herbs and it's the best way to use them quickly. This one looks particularly good. I bet it would be awesome on some grilled meat/fish.
