Today it was so hot, 32 degrees Celsius and so muggy you can almost cut it with knife. So, Peter and I both wanted something ‘light’, yet, satisfying. Since I bake all of our bread, baking despite the heat had to be done. Thanks to a new air conditioner this year, the house stayed nice and cool. We were lucky. So we had fresh warm french bread, a fresh Caesar Salad with homemade croutons, left over bacon and lots of grated parmesan. I grilled halibut fish in a butter, lemon, spice brush and made a side of orzo summer salad. (can also be made with couscous). It consisted of cooked orzo mixed with a little chicken broth (warm) then toss in the cool veggies; tomato chunks, chopped cucumber, chopped green onion and chopped fresh parsley. Lucky for me I have most of these ingredients right outside in my garden. This was the perfect meal on a hot summer day.
