Dinner Menu XII

The soaring heat has been torturous, magnified by drenching humidity.  A new sympathy for the three Hebrew children emerges. Motivation for cooking has been low - not only because the kitchen easily reaches 115 degrees and rages hotter with the oven and stove rolling, but the humid air sucks your energy like a parasite.

However, relief!  The last week has been deliciously cool, floating somewhere in the 80s and with a few overcast days scattered throughout.  Our house has been in the low 80s, sometimes even dipping into the chilly 70s.  It's still humid, but it's not 90% humidity any more!

We've been canning, regardless of the heat, and I've even found the time for some experimental projects in the kitchen - but more about that later!

could eat it all night - it was amazing!
