It has been really really hot. I don't know if we've broken any records, but I can't recall it ever being over 90 in April here. I spent most of the weekend inside ( in air) I finished my afghan at 5 am before it got too toasty. I did get some, but not much work done on my cozy also. My daughter, accidentally left a bag of frozen macaroni and cheese sauce on the counter when she got ice out of the freezer. It thawed. I was a bit leary of refreezing it - since it is my own concoction so I needed to use it. I really did not want to turn the oven on, so I lined a glass pyrex dish with foil, inside and out ,made some pasta, mixed the cheese sauce in topped it with leftover stuffing from stuffed mushrooms I made at Easter ( I made a lot, don't know why, froze it in a zip loc bag) I figured breadcrumbs, olive oil and melted butter, asiago, parmesan and romano cheese, dried garlic and onion flakes, oregano, basil and bacon bits. why not? Then I turned the grill on low and stuck it on the grill for 40 minutes. And it worked!
Now here's the true kicker. those of you that know me well know I really don't do water. I'm afraid of rust. Seriously- coffee all day and evening with a break for tea in the late afternoon. The occasional beer. that's pretty much what I drink. Well this weekend I only had one cup of coffee each day! Really! I drank a lot of tea . Lots and lots of tea. I went through 34 tea bags. Granted I have a giant 4 cup mug which I toss 2 or 3 bags in but still a lot of tea. Then to top it off, I must have drank 16 glasses of water ( ice tea glasses like 16 ounces!) How do I know? because that's the size glass I use and I squeeze 1/2 lemon in each one, and I went through 8 lemons in 2 days.
I guess the usual spring temperature ramp up allows me more time to get used to the heat.
