Still steamy

Right near 100F again now: glad to be inside!
Boo and Skibo were away at sleepovers last night, and went swimming at a friends pool this morning, so LOML and I took the opportunity to drive to the big city (small-big city) forty minutes away.  Our chance to visit the granola-y and cheap-but-very-drinkable-wine-selling stores.  Tonight we're planning a cheese tasting, and we managed to get some nice red lentils for moroccan red lentil soup.  I've been wondering what to cook for Wednesday's July 4th party, and somehow I've become focused on a middle eastern theme.
Because nothing says American like tagine and couscous, right?

Yours, clearly culinarily confused,

Summertime, and the living is sweaty

It's finally summer, and the weather is showing it.  It's only 9:30, and it's already 81 F, with a predicted high for today of 106 F.  That's about 41 C.  Ugh!  And the highs are supposed to be similar for the next couple of days as well --- not a good time to be going outside!

Yours, expecting to sweat,
