Recipes for Hot Hot Weather

Happy Sunday everyone.

I gotta tell you right at the start: It’s too darn hot here. Way too hot for me to think. So I spend my time working (yep, gotta do that on weekends too), reading and looking for something to share with you. And this is what I came up with:

I hope you all know that I looove food. And even though it’s really hot right now, people got to eat. I’m not terribly hungry, but there are a few things that will make my mouth water. So, while browsing the world-wide web, I came across some great recipes for days like these. And I’d like to share these recipes with you.

I’ll start with a starter that reminded me of a trip to Lucerne. WATERMELON SOUP WITH MINT. I had it in a restaurant in Lucerne and I have to admit, there are lots of versions of it on the internet. Here are two recipes that I think look great:

A more classy version: Minty Chilled Watermelon Soup

A version for those who like it hot when it’s hot: Watermelon, Cucumber & Mint Soup

Now on to the entrée. So I found this awesome recipe for SPINACH AND ORANGE YOGURT SALAD RAITA. I have to admit it’s more of a dip. But hey, you can easily alter it. Just take some more spinach (If it’s fresh, take a LOT of it. Like a gallon or more [that’s about 4 liters]) and it’s a salad. If you’d like to add some meat, you could add grilled chicken or beef. Just experiment. Don’t be afraid. (And yes, you can also have bread with it). I had all sorts of spinach yogurt salads and I’ve always loved them. I’m looking forward to trying this one.

Here’s the original recipe: Spinach and Orange Yogurt Salad Raita

For dessert, I’d suggest HONEY YOGURT BERRY POPS. I think they look delicious. And I bet they also taste great. 🙂 When I was a child, we used to make yogurt pops, but we never put berries in them. This seems to be the adult version 😀
