I fear my usual repertoire is a bit stodgy for this heat. Anything I can double cook and reheat or serve cold would be great. And sadly, no to salads - the DCs treat them with intense suspicion hmm.

ooh , lasagne would be good
I love spanish omelette, but we have an egg dodger sad. I suppose I could sling a vegeburger in the oven for her while the rest of us have it though.


Baked fish with new pots and herbs

Roast peppers stuffed with either quinoa ,herbs, and feta or chopped new potatoes, herbs and feta.


Linguine with laced Courgettes, mozzarella, and basil

Cod, pepper and.Courgette kebab/Skewers?

Courgette or sweetcorn fritters?

Pasta with fresh cherry tomatoes, basil and olive oil

Gazpacho can be made in giant portions, stored in the fridge in glass litre bottles to eaten in bowls or drunk in glasses (good to pass it though a fine seive if you like it as a drink). So refreshing. Serve with garlicy croutons if eating as a soup.

Musheroom risotto a l'espangole - made a risotto last night with musherooms but to add something to it, I cooked up chorizo, lardons and garlic before adding the musherooms and rice. So good.
