summer time means hot weather {WIAW}

Eating in the summer is hard for me. I try to think cool but my stomach just wants what it always wants. Breakfast and lunch aren't too hard but dinner always throws me. What to have without turning on the oven?

I was headed up to Albany for an afternoon meeting. I woke up early to get in a quick work out and then had two slices of banana blueberry bread. One had some peanut butter spread on it, the other Nutella. Blueberries are just starting to pop up at the stores at reasonable prices. This batch tasted so sweet. 

I had to grab an early lunch before my meeting and it was a good thing because the banana bread didn't satisfy me for long. I got my typical Panera meal of Broccoli Cheddar soup and the Chicken Cobb Avocado salad. I will never get sick of this combination.

Corn was on sale at the store so I grab four for the week. First corn of the season. l am from Iowa so my corn selection is pretty picky. These weren't great but not bad either for being so early.  Topped with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Grilled.  You have to try grilled corn. It is the best!

We had grilled boneless pork chops with BBQ sauce along with some Caesar salad. Nothing in the kitchen was turned on. No pots or pans required. Pretty prefect for a meal in the summer.

We ended the day with a big cookie and a glass of milk.

How do you cook in the summer to stay cool?


  1. Corn must be the greatest thing to cook on the grill during the summer months :)

  2. I waaant

    the bread, the corn and the coooookie

  3. We turn on the grill a lot in the summer! I love grilled corn. I found you through WIAW and I am a new follower of yours! Have a great day!

  4. Mmmmm the bread in that first pic is making my mouth water!

    1. I will be posting the recipe on Friday. Stop back for it. :)

  5. Your corn on the cob looks SO good! And as a fellow Iowan, I must agree with you that liking corn (GOOD corn!) is a must!

  6. Yeah, I am super picky about corn, too :) I can't wait till our produce stand starts selling the local stuff. Bill got home early enough to grill for me...liked not turning on the oven or cooktop today.

  7. Growing up in NJ (the Garden State), like you I am totally picky about my corn, blueberries, and of course, tomatoes. In the summer, my crockpot is my best friend. I resisted getting one for the longest time, but you can really make just about anything in a slow cooker (thank you internet for all the recipes). Because sometimes you just don't want a salad.

  8. Love the corn!! I got some fantastic corn over memorial day weekend.. gotta stock up on more. :)

  9. ズボンを買おうと思っているのですが、お金をあまり割けず、1万円強程度で2本購入しようと考えております.
