I'm too hot to eat so I might have a chicken sandwich later, DH is out so I'm treating the DC to pizza from M&S.
I am envy of your DC eating pasta salads etc mine don't really like cold food.

Nothing. Its too hot to either cook or eat. I cant be bothered.
I told the kids to forrage in the fridge and sort themselves out.
They made sandwiches.
Ill throw something down my throat later.
My husband had SOUP! In this weather! Mad fool.

Just me eating tonight so I have a "picky plate"
Cold roast chicken, garlic anchovies, coleslaw, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and cucumber

I had a very spicy soup at lunchtime.

Off to neighbour's BBQ in a min, must say I'm glad not to have to cook in this weather smile

We're having guests so more food than usual but I'm making chicken wings, potato salad, chickpea curry, lamb biryani and salad. The biryani will be served with a mint yoghurt sauce so it's a bit more cooling.

I'm having spag Bol as it's the only meal we have left. Dd hasn't touched it hmm dp still at work hmm

Weather will never dampen my love for fish and chips.

We're barbecuing:

ribeye steak, marinated in olive oil and lemon juice
neck fillet of lamb and aubergine kebabs, marinated in yoghurt, garlic, cumin and mint, with chilli/paprika mayonnaise
halloumi, with lemon, garlic and coriander dressing
coleslaw
Puy lentil salad

And if the barbecue is still going after all that, then I have some sausages to cook as well!

MonsterBookOfTyRexs Sat 13-Jul-13 17:42:48

Morrisons Extra Tasty cooked chicken, plus salad and tiger bread. DD1 has been dancing all afternoon, and me there with her - so a very quick tea for all of us when we got in.

WilsonFrickett Sat 13-Jul-13 20:17:01

We BBQ-d again but cheated and got it all from marks. Venison burgers, chicken strips (a bit meh) and some chicken kebabs which were very good. Couple of rolls and some salad and salsa. Could not be faffed even sticking something in a marinade this morning. Although its cooled down quite a bit now.

Taffeta Sat 13-Jul-13 20:28:10

Chicken souvlaki with coriander yoghurt dressing red onion and homegrown tomatoes in soft pittas
Homegrown raspberries and cream for pud
And Prosecco.
