With the temp at 98 degrees, 90% humidity, and no A/C, I decided to minimize the cooking.
I boiled some corn on the cob and let it cool a while before serving. I also made Chickpea Salad with chickpeas from the freezer (see beans). Frozen worked fine, didn’t taste grainy even starring in a salad – to defrost it without heating it up I microwaved until I could crumble them icily into a bowl, then rinsed them in cold water and they were perfect. Lastly I made a garden salad with lettuce, cuke, lovely juicy summer farm stand tomato, red pepper, cold microwaved tofu, and from my garden: purslane, mesclun greens, basil, lime basil, cilantro, chives, parsley, and spearmint. Dressing was Green Goddess.
We ate at the porch table in our wet bathing suits.
