Hot Weather Meals

It's going to be way too hot to fire up your stove over the next few days. It's the perfect time to opt for some cool food or head outdoors and fire up your grill so that you stay cool indoors.

Pre-dinner Cocktail: Fill a tall glass with ice, add 1 1/2 ounces of vodka and then fill the rest of your glass with this lemonade.

Fennel and celery salad: Add some cooked, chilled shrimp or crab to make this a complete meal.

Seafood Ceviche: One of my very favorites for a hot night. This is on the menu for Saturday night!

Thai Pork Lettuce Wraps: Make this a cool meal by letting the pork cool to room temperature.

Grilled lobster tail:

Tuscan steak: Serve this with a cool salad.

Caesar Salad: Add some cold protein like shrimp, crab or lobster and buy store-bought croutons so you don't have to use your oven.

Asian Cole Slaw: Add some cold protein to this salad as well.

Chilled and Spicy Noodles:

Taco Salad: Make sure the beef cools to room temperature:
