Poverty crackers (Ritz) and cheddar cheese. And a diet DP. Don't want a big meal on a hot day, especially if I plan to be out in it.

(Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon?)

A tuna fish salad sandwich on toast with a slice of tomato and lettuce leaf with either cold pea or pasta salad. Or a big family favorite, BLT's in pita bread. Chop up into little pieces and fry a pound of bacon (or if you're lazy or hot use a package of the pre cooked stuff). Toss it like a salad with chopped lettuce and chopped tomato and mayo. Slice a pita bread in half (I prefer whole wheat) and open it up to make the pocket. Line the pocket with a slice of Swiss cheese and then stuff it with the BLT mixture. Good schtuff!

Wilted cucumber salad and anything that includes a thick slab of home grown beefsteak tomatoes. This morning making black been salad and a green bean salad. Hard boil eggs for breakfast for the next few days and drink the coffee iced.

BLT with thick-sliced bacon grilled over hickory chunks & then frozen weeks ago. Zap the bacon briefly then make the sandwich with chilled brandywine 'maters out of the garden. Great eating and fixed in minutes.

Can't believe that I've not mentioned popsicles yet.....

Or a Klondike bar. Tried the new Heathbar Klondike yet? Nice.

Surgery tomorrow, so a semi fast today and nothing by mouth after 12mn. If I could eat, I would make a great big crab or lobster salad with a side of garlic toast. Oh, and the surgery is just cataract removal. No big deal.

Do smoothies count? I have to use a blender.

ms_canada 7 years, 9 months ago

Por supuesto - smoothies make great meals.

In one of those bizarre associations, Billy Idol is linked inextricably in my mind to the food that I was eating when I first saw a video of him for White Wedding.

Billy Idol = Alpha Bits

I was all excited when I opened the link and then realized it isn't the Douglas County Fair in Lawrence :(

Camper and I saw the Little River Band in June when they were in Gardner and they put on a really good show.

if you don't want to generate heat with toaster, then tomato/avacado salad with spicy ranch dressing.

I agree with Nicole at the top...Lucky Charms are amazing.

Also, crackers and cheese or toast and peanut butter. Or candy, cookies, and cake.

From my weather station in BC, the HX peaked 117.4 @ 430p. Bleah.

My wife makes a cold soup of pureed canteloupe from the garden and serves with sandwiches of prosciutto on Wheatfields baguettes drizzled with seasoned olive oil. She adds a green salad and boy is it good.

Cait McKnelly 7 years, 9 months ago

Anything on Wheatfields bread is going to be good. It's the only place in town where I can find truly dense wheat bread.

spaceshipearth 7 years, 9 months ago

sounds fantastic! In Italy they eat cantaloupe wrapped in proscuitto as an appetizer on very hot days. Try it sometime, it's a very good combo.

For dessert... no-bake cookies. Oatmeal, peanut butter, cocoa, sugar. Mmmm. Takes a while for them to set, though, so a little prep ahead of time is called for.

Fritos corn chips with blue cheese!
