Virginia Willis had a good idea. The latest post on her blog is about sustainability and oceans fisheries, which I heartily endorse. But more importantly she gave us a cold dish to make for dinner. Because short of sucking on a Coke Slurpee in one hand and a fat watermelon slice in the other while lounging in a kiddie pool full of crushed ice, cooking in a hot kitchen is the last thing I really want to do.
If you'd like to try your hand at court-bouillon, poaching and even making your own mayonnaise, check out Virginia's recipe. As for me, when faced with a weather forecast calling for a week's worth of 99 degree heat and humidity, I'm ready to hide out in the cool darkness for an all day movie theater marathon. Here's hoping everyone stays safe during the heatwave.
