This Summer so far has been rather on the hot side. Temperatures hovering around the 100 F. So warm and muggy that you try to get everything done in the few morning hours before the thermostat hits those unbearable numbers again.
You say I should be used to this? Yes we lived in El Centro CA, where the average in the Summer is between 105 and 113 F. And yes it was unbearable to go outside there very often. The daily trip to the mail box I delayed until the sun went down. I was pregnant during the time we lived there and many times I had my feet stuck in a bucket full of cold water and ice. The pool was not an option because it was like a warm bath tub. Our AC ran all day and broke down often.
Now living in South Carolina we got used to the wonderful three sometimes 4 Seasons again and we love it.
I bake all our own bread. With these temperatures it has been proven to be a challenge. I do not want to add anymore heat to our house, it is warm enough in here already. This summer we have our AC set to 83 F, so it would not be running all day. Every corner houses a fan. Occasionally you will see a cat or a person standing or sitting in front of one of those to cool off.
So now we are running low on bread and I am hoping for a cooler morning. Does not look very promising, at least not in the next few days.
What to eat in this heat? During the day we stick with fruits and nuts. Cooling drinks or home made ice cream.
