    That sounds yummy swingkat . I absolutely love Greek yogurt and now that I've tried it, I won't eat any other kind.

    Re: Recipes

    I made a great chicken and sweet potato stew in the crockpot yesterday. I know it's not stew weather, but it was one of those days where everyone was on a different schedule and the crockpot worked out perfectly for that.
    I started with a basic recipe and liberally added to it. It was fabulous. There is hardly any left. Hubby said he ate 3 bowls!

    5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces.
    2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
    1 red bell pepper chopped.
    1 med. onion chopped
    3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices.
    1 Can of diced tomatoes
    1 can of tomato sauce
    1 can of black beans
    1 can of corn
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons ground mustard
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon of celery seed
    1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
    1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
    1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon
    1 cup nonfat, low-sodium chicken broth
    1/4 cup of fresh basil leaves, chopped

    1. Combine everything but basil in the crockpot
    2. Cover, cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
    3. Sprinkle with basil just before serving.

    Great over rice.

    Why do we cite delicious, interesting sounding foods and post no recipes or any details???
    Was that hint big enough??? Fall weather is eventually coming, you know.

    lol, I didn't make it so I'm not sure but I'll give it a try.

    1 pork loin roast
    simmer all day in water, garlic and onion.
    Drain water and add a can of red enchilada sauce
    simmer for an hour to thicken
    Cut onions, radish and cabbage for garnish

    serve with tortillas and lime.

    Re: Recipes

    It is too hot to cook and eat. It's over 100 outside (reports vary on just HOW hot, but anything this hot is just classified in my book as "hot as hell". )

    My ac has not been able to keep up, so as a result it's 82 inside and stuffy.

    I haven't wanted to eat because I just feel HOT, but I'm sure by 6 the family is going to want something.

    I'm thinking we will have fruit and cottage cheese for dinner. Watermelon, cantelope and peaches and some cottage cheese. It's just too hot to want to move around or eat anything heavy.

    What do you guys eat and cook when it gets to the boiling point inside and out?

    Re: Recipes

    I just made a fruit combo of peaches and mango cut up with some lavender sugar. I also have some cut up cucumbers marinating in a dill mix (garlic, onion, etc.) with sour cream and ricotta. Tofu salad is good - mash up a cake of tofu and an avocado and add cut up veggies of your choice. I haven't made that in a while, but I used to eat it a lot. Egg salad, tuna salad, and 3-bean salad are good hot weather foods. I always keep a dozen (jumbo) hard-boiled eggs for a quick protein fix in the fridge.
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Recipes

    I usually make sandwiches and a salad. I love to make tuna sandwiches and a spicy ranch salad. (Ranch dressing with some red hot sauce)

    Re: Recipes

    Either I call pizza shuttle, Chopstix or go around the corner to the DAWG Haus fora couple of Chicago style dogs or Italian beef. If I am too lazy to walk I make either tuna, chicken or egg salad sandwiches with chips and of course a nice cold MILLER.

    Re: Recipes

    When it's too hot to cook, we have fresh vegetable salad with either hard-boiled egg (that I keep on hand), leftover chicken, baked marinated tofu (ready-to-eat from Trader Joe's), or chicken mango sausage (again, from Trader Joe's) thrown in for protein. Toasted crusty bread with a dipping sauce of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar reduction on the side.

    We also like to do "appetizer" dinners: hummus with flatbread / pita and feta cheese, fresh tomatoes, and kalamata olives; Trader Joe's frozen turkey meatballs, heated with a couple of throw-together dipping sauces; cheese, crackers, fruit, raw veggies.
