It is the hottest ever, chickens, and we’re pretty much lying on the floor over here, wishing it was cooler, and cursing Los Angeles, and wondering what we can eat without doing the least amount of work, preferably without heat.
This lead us to do a bunch of research about what we could eat while keeping cool. (You are so welcome.)
First, try Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles. These look amazing, and really will fulfill the hole of dessert, and also are nice and chilly.
Second, you should definitely make yourself a Moscow Mule. They’re easy, they go down smooth, and they are lovely ice, ice cold.
If you need a lunch, skip the salad and try a Tuna Salad Pita. Not only will you be more full, you also get Omegas and a pita. Who doesn’t love a pita?!
If you’re looking for a dinner where you don’t have to turn the oven on, you should try this Shrimp Gazpacho which has the protein of shrimp but is served cold – a perfect summer dinner.

Here’s to getting through the weekend and not melting away…we hope that you have air conditioning, and if you do, please feel free to invite me over!
