Frozen dinners

Heat, 32 degrees celcius, i'm a regular puddle of sweat. It's not a pretty sight, and I'm not a happy camper.

I'd love to just hide out in my bedroom with the ac on full blast, but that'll kill the electric bill and add to the ozone hole.

My short term resolution then is to eat cool. Salads, light stuff that doesn't sit low on the tummy. And healthy, right?

HA! Easier said than done. Last two nights, I've fallen off the wagon, and eaten, well, sort of not so healthy stuff. I bought the groceries, stocked up on vegies and fruits. But I couldn't muster up the energy to lift a knife. So I did the next best thing, opened up the freezer, pulled out a pint of HD Vanilla and ate it up. That was my only meal of the day.

Tonight, i had an avocado dish waiting for me, but my attention went towards the frozen bowl of grapes instead. Cold, icy spheres of sweet red seedless grapes. Placed the bowl in direct line with the rotating electric fan, and that added a cool breeze towards me. Edible ac.

I know just what you mean. As someone who still can't get up the energy to cook, even making a salad can seem like too much work. In this heat, mere breathing is an effort! A sandwich (notwithstanding the carbs involved) is much easier. But at least I've managed to resist the temptation to do the easiest thing of all: pick up the phone and have something delivered!
