Not sure about your area, but it's HOT here. Saturday evening we went out to cut grass about 6:30 and it was 93* with heavy humidity. Chuck trimmed while I rode the mower. I watered flowers when I was done and was beat when I came in. Whew! All of the heat gives me no desire to cook.
Of course, I must feed my family. Eating out all of our meals isn't in the budget. I have been making quick items and avoiding the use of the oven.
The crock pot has been a life saver. I put a pork roast in for pulled pork, made cole slaw to cool in the refrigerator and served with potato chips.
My go to recipe for cole slaw Chick-fil-A. Long time readers might remember that worked there for years. I have made this recipe countless times. A little secret is that they use Kraft Mayo.
I'd love to hear your beat the heat recipes.
