My sympathies for the heat... I can barely deal with our own level of 'too hot' (about 80 F!).


I finally found a half decent deal on lamb this week. First time I have seen any kind of leg of lamb for under $20. It was boneless Aussie lamb on special. I couldn't pass it up. Was the coolest day in a while, fog rolled in in the evening and it felt cooler although still about 70 F. No sun heating up the house and that was great because I was out of bread and had to bake! And afterwards I roasted the lamb all gussied up with rosemary and garlic. What a tasty piece of meat! The flavor was much stronger than NZ lamb and I suspect conditions are a bit rougher in the Australian outback. Could have easily passed for goat, and for me, I like it!!!!
Just for reference the NZ lamb legs bone in are sitting in the store freezer with $45 price tag. It's been like it for several years, the price just doubled one day for reasons unknown, and so lamb fell off the ever, even for a treat menu.


I'm on day three now of lamb sandwiches for dinner. Lamb, cheese, mayo, veggies du jour. I have tomatoes, lettuce, arugula, garlic scapes and peas to choose from at the mo. Not having to cook on a hot day is a real mercy.

It is 81F inside my kitchen and living room. The other rooms are cooler in the mid 70s. I'm thinking a nice cold salad sounds good for dinner.

I liked the U R Cooks restaurants they used to have where you picked out your own steak and cooked it.
All the baked potato and salad you could eat came with it too.

If you left hungry is was your own fault.
I hate restaurants where you spend a poor mans fortune and leave hungry.

I'm getting a little worried about how much heat I am eating in my hot sauce.
I made a batch today and put a ton of it on my last taco and it didn't even phase me.

I ate a Cuban sandwich in a restaurant recently with some family members. As always, I grabbed a bottle of hot sauce thinking it had one of those little squirt tops on it to limit the flow. It didn't, it just had a lid which I had removed. I covered my sandwich and the plate with half a bottle of hot sauce. I sopped the sauce up with the sandwich bread as I ate. I thought it was great. Everyone around the table said the odor of the sauce was burning their eyes.

I think it tastes better than the name brand stuff, and it's cheaper. Sometimes, they have an offer to get free Rotel and a can of chili when you buy it.

So far it is going to be a experiment pea salad.
One can of English peas.
Chopped red onion.
Chopped green olives.
Chopped habanero.
Mayonnaise.
Lime juice.
Fermented hot sauce just a pinch.
Tasted great so far needs to cool off.
Will eat with my habanero pickled hot links.
This keeps me from going to the store in 101F heat.

Hot dogs, mac n cheese and tortilla chips with queso blanco with a glass of iced tea. Dogs had yellow mustard, diced onion and Famous Daves Sweet & Spicy relish.
