Need ideas for summer cooking that don't involve oven or grill

Please help! Need ideas for summer cooking for 1 hungry man and 1 slightly less hungry gal - we don't have a grill yet and we can't turn on the oven in the apt. because it makes it SO hot. I find even the stove annoying but will give in and use that...

We can't afford to go out/bring in every night so wondering if anyone can suggest delicious, filling and simple recipes I can make with minimal heat. We are unfortunately not into cold soups btw and though I eat salad like it's going out of style, he is not much of a fan (though sometimes is ok). We don't eat much red meat and not too much rice/pasta either.

Doesn't have to be a "formal" dinner. The other night we had sandwiches I made with sauted chicken and avocado - was actually quite good.

I know this leaves limited options, but I am not the world's greatest cook so I'm hoping fellow Chowhounder's can help!!
