Beat-the-Heat Meals: Monday, Fun-Day Cookbook Giveaway
Today is the Fourth of July, so if you’re in the United States, I suspect you’re trying to beat the heat (while waiting on the fireworks) by spreading out a picnic or firing up the grill to enjoy a meal with friends and family.
But sometimes the weather is too hot even to fire up the grill. And after today, you may be ready to take a (short?) break from outside cooking. The featured recipe from today’s Monday, Fun-Day Cookbook Giveaway will help (see below).
You can find out more about The Big Summer Cookbook here. With 300 recipes for those lazy, hazy days, this one will get you through to our next (end of) summer holiday: Labor Day, just two months away. As the author writes, summer is about memories, and memories are about flavors, and flavors are about food. So let’s make some memories while we still have summer.
The Cookbook Basics:
Paperback (7.4 x 9.2)
Looking for a sample recipe?
This Cold Avocado Cucumber Soup involves no cooking and results in a nearly instant cool-down on eating. What more can you ask for from a summer recipe?
Or how about Cold Corn Soup?
I’m guessing you see my recipe theme here…
