Has anyone been baking? I haven't. And lately I consider baking to be putting together a salad in this hot weather. Why? Because my body is baking while doing it. Heatwave indeed. I really don't mind the heat so much as the humidity we've gotten on the cape is brutal, like rainforest brutal you know? And I'm getting kind of tired of sleeping with A/C on; I miss those nice cool breezes at night.
So as of late we've been eating a lot of hummus rollups, salads, and sushi. I have not been eating ice cream as I had a bad cold and need to watch the dairy intake. But I have been enjoying those coconut milk ice creams by Turtle Mountain. Have you tried them? I was amazed at how much they tasted just like dairy and yet it's dairy free. My favorite is the chocolate/pb (of course, no surprise there).
So if you're like me these days and loathe turning the oven on, would rather stay in your bathing suit all day (yes all day morning to night just so you're prepared at a moments notice to jump in the pool or ocean). Well ok you have to turn the oven on for this one, to boil the eggs. This is a fast easy meal with my favorite way to eat: layers of flavor. Complete with black olives, sweet pepper relish, romaine lettuce all served on warm garlic Naan. It's also great with green olives and chopped pimentos too.
What do you like to put in your egg salad? Have you ever kicked it up a few notches?
