Too hot to cook

It has been a little hot and humid, which is normal for this time of year in Minnesota. I hate heating up the kitchen in the summer, since our kitchen and dining room faces South we get a lot of sun in the windows. It just makes it miserable in here and then the poor air conditioner has to work overtime and then the bill goes up and then we can't afford food. Whew! I have used my NuWave oven a lot lately-round steak, chicken, pork loin. Nothing fancy or new to blog about. I hope to have a dessert up soon. Dude wants me to make the 'cobbler' portion of the peach cobbler and macerate the raspberries I just got.

For now, here are some flowers from the deck-they are getting hot and burned out now, even after moving them to some shade for a day or two. Sigh. Love it when summer comes, but spring is so much nicer to the plants.




Taking the camper out this weekend for the first time this year. Camping by the Mississippi River down by Red Wing. Gonna chill with a beer while watching the rich people boating on the river!

Its been hot and muggy here too, but that's also normal. I've still been cooking though because we figured out we can close the door to the kitchen and the heat doesn't come into the other room too bad (yeah, we only have two rooms).

Your flowers are lovely!

When it gets hot, I put dinner in the crockpot and then put the crockpot outside on the back porch to keep the heat outside where it belongs.

Have a great weekend!

I just told my kids yesterday it was "too hot to cook." Although I live in Houston and it IS too hot to cook. I didn't think that was possible in MN!! Domino's pizza by the pool tonight.
