What's For Dinner?

What's For Dinner Graphic

Another scorcher today! We went over the 100 degree mark yesterday and today is shaping up much the same. Again in the theme of not heating up the house we're having a slow cooker meal. (You'll probably see another slow cooker meal tomorrow too since it's going to be hot as Hades then as well! This summer may just become the summer of the slow cooker!) I put some potatoes and a roast in with some salt and pepper. We'll have pot roast, potatoes and a side salad with Ranch dressing.

What are you having?

Update: 5:26 pm: I forgot to say we're having corn on the cob too! It's one of Alexis' all time favorites. I just pulled the pot roast out of the slow cooker to rest for a few minutes and it looks perfect!

I love the slow cooker in the heat but I am not sure I have anything on hand to put in it! Maybe it won't get quite so hot??

We're having cold cucumber soup, turkey burgers and no cook barbecue bean salad - http://www.realage.com/NutritionCenter/Recipes/Barbecue_Bean_Salad.aspx

Yesterday, I made the mistake of a meal that required a lot of oven time. Not again.

I know I'm going to sear ahi tuna because it's done under 5 minutes. I'm not sure of the side dishes yet.

So far it hasn't gotten quiet so hot here as it did yesterday, but the day isn't over yet! ;o)

Oh the recipe for that bean salad looks good!

I haven't made tuna in a while. I need to do that!
