This is most refreshing: ginger and apple juice.

Sliced tomatoes (lightly salted), thinly sliced mozzarella (interleave with tomatoes), cold boiled potatoes (new preferably). Simple dressing, salt, pepper, garlic, vinegar, olive oil (drizzle/drench former according to taste). Green salad with same dressing. A delight.

Mediterranean vegetable pizza. Cooked then refrigerated.

This isn't the way the British Empire was won, you degenerates!

Brown Windsor soup, steak & kidney pie followed by jam rolypoly, no matter what the weather. That's how you impress the natives.

That's how the British Empire was lost.

I'll happily eat a full roast dinner, with a mug of tea, in any weather.

bossab2 - 06 Aug 2018 19:26:00 (#8 of 69)

I've had several mugs of hot tea today.

Sushi, cold beer. Repeat.

Curry, cold beer. Repeat.

Lobster roll, cold beer. Repeat.

I'd see a doctor.

Loads of water and cold fruit juices interspersed with the odd ice lolly. Mostly.

For me it's not a good idea to consume too many cold foods and drinks, it makes my digestive system sluggish and weak. I certainly don't ever put ice in my drinks.

In hot weather my food is more seasoned (salt and soya sauce) because my body needs it and more spiced (ginger, ground pepper, chilli) because it stimulates appetite and helps digestion.

I eat salads of veges and herbs from the garden, plus generally lighter normal food: rice noodles instead of pasta, blended soups, lots of lightly cooked vegetables, add small amounts of nuts and sesame seeds, bits of prawns or smoked fish, etc. Certainly can't eat red meat in this heat, or anything with heavy sauces.

Otoh I wouldn't mind a curry now and then but it's too hot to cook the Indian ones. Thai curry is the easy default because of good ready made green curry paste. Add coconut milk to any lightly cook stuff, hey presto, curry!

Tesco doest insurance of veg curry. So virtually no hot cooking.

Otoh, perhaps that's a disgusting prospect.

uranrising - 07 Aug 2018 12:10:10 (#14 of 69)

Damn predictive.

Tesco does tins of vegetable.curry.

AlanII - 07 Aug 2018 12:10:28 (#15 of 69)

Hahaha

RosyLovelady - 07 Aug 2018 12:12:45 (#16 of 69)

I love "doest insurance". I wish I had such a poetic, archaic facility on my PC.

uranrising - 07 Aug 2018 12:13:53 (#17 of 69)

It's the way I fingers 'em.

WibbleAgain - 07 Aug 2018 13:39:34 (#18 of 69)

Tesco doest insurance of veg curry.

That is a beauty!

HerrWalrus - 07 Aug 2018 13:49:58 (#19 of 69)

Gazpacho. Ideal.

RosyLovelady - 07 Aug 2018 13:51:14 (#20 of 69)

I reckon there's something very unappetising about cold soup of any kind. Sorry and all that.
