What to serve for dinner on a night like this? Especially if the kitchen is without air conditioning?
You can always cut up some tomatoes, toss them with salt, garlic and basil, boil some pasta , add some parm. But now you're eating HOT food in a hot setting.
Growing up without air conditioning in the swamp that is D.C., our family often had coffee milkshakes on pea-soup nights like this one.
Now, that we're older, a vodka and tonic (or gin and tonic or rum and tonic) served with copious amounts of lime seems particularly inviting.
