we're having a heat wave. . . so whats for lunch?

Here in LA it is ridiculously hot and we lack air conditioning. Typically, thats not an issue but I confess, right now if I could fit in the fridge, I'd be there.

For last week's heatwave, Sunday dinner was giant bowls of gazpacho. Everyone--pups included--found it fine. This week for lunch, we made fruit smoothies [frozen fruit of your choice mostly from trader joes, yogurt, a bit of protein powder, vanilla & honey--WHIRRRRRRRR in the Kitchenaid blender]. I highly recommend mango with fresh blackberries and a touch of cream!

At the Sunday Farmer's market, I bought incrediants for a nice tomatillo salsa--tomatillos, hot peppers, cilantro, green onion and lime--to be scooped onto some grilled fish or chicken tongiht or tomorrow.

What are you eatting in these roasting hot days? Are you cooking? fasting? Eatting out? whirling the blender?
