Thank goodness for central air. Here's the problem with living in Wisconsin, it's either freezing cold or hot/humid that you can't stand yourself. Spring and Fall are supposed to be the "reasonable" seasons in this area, however with a blizzard near the end of April and temps still dropping near freezing into late May/early June. Now that warmer weather has arrived, it's here...mid 90's with a heat index of well over 100 degrees. I know we are not alone with all this heat. I'm not complaining, (because we have working central air) but I'm also not working on my tan like I should be. I did use my oven but it was at a minimal, mostly for some batch cooking. What are some ways that you try to beat the heat and get a healthy meal on the table for your family?
Sunday- Easy Chicken Tortellini Parmesan
Monday- crockpot pork stew over rice
Tuesday-Little Cesar's $5 pizza with three-bean salad
Wednesday-peanut butter chocolate chip granola with apple/strawberry smoothies
Thursday-rice cooker mac and cheese with hot dogs
Saturday-lentil tacos with chips and homemade salsa
