MPM--The Too Darn Hot Edition

Too hot to think straight. Cringing at my carbon footprint with the air conditioning. Saving instead on that pesky cooking.

Monday: leftover hoagies/other sandwiches, to be gobbled at the pool before running back in

Tuesday: hot dogs in buns from the microwave. Cannot believe we didn't eat them at the shore but thrilled they are in the fridge ready to go.

Wednesday: noodles (leftover) for boys, Trader Joe's Tarte d'Alcase for me; husband going to nephew's graduation and can fend for himself. (We're going to another nephew's band concert anyway.)

Thursday: papardelle (or other funky pasta I have) with spinach and portobellos for grownups; hummus on bread for kids, plus whatever else comes in the CSA share

Friday: I think out for pizza if we can stand the heat

Saturday: BBQ at friends'--woohoo!

All will be augmented by a variety of great stuff from the shore, both good-for-you (melons, tomatoes, asparagus, salad) and not-even-a-little (pirate's booty and other snacky things that somehow came home with us too).

Happy week everyone. Want inspiration? Try here!

I'm right there with you. It's leftovers and cereal and simple stuff, all the way. HOORAY FOR TJ's Micro meals!

omg, I bought that TJ tarte d'alsace for hubby and he ADORED it (but didn't save a sliver for me!) so hopefully we'll try it this weekend (got a new one in the freezer.)

The singular thing I mis about Delco/PA/NJ is that on a hot summer eve, I can't run to the corner and pickup hoagies for dinner :(
