"opened the fire door"  
x. It is 45*C (113*F) here today. &it is going to be the same tomorrow, and over 40*C up until next Monday. Yes, summer has arrived in south australia. Thank god for airconditioning, & cold drinks with ice in them.

x. Noel & I are going to see Ani DiFranco tonight; we have front row seats, and I am wondering how Ani is coping with this heat :-\ Eek. We are going out for dinner shortly, before the show, and all I want to eat is icecream :P

x. Thankyou all so much for your meal suggestions - I am definitely going to add those to my "things to try"! &am definitely considering investing in a slow-cooker/crockpot.

x. I am way too hot & uncomfortable to write anything of substance right now; but there are so many of you that I miss.

Good luck surviving the heat hun. Melbourne isn't too much better. For a change,I cannot wait to get back to work tomorrow for the adorable airconditioning that makes it resemble Antarctica.

Enjoy the concert. :)

wow, that is HOT. if the weather got like that here, heat advisories would DEFINITELY be in effect. we've gotten temps like that here (chicago) but that's a bit extremem for us. oy!

a crock pot is definitely a worthwhile investment. there are tons of recipes available online and it's almost foolproof cooking. plus, nice for summer because it doesn't make a lot of heat!

have fun at the concert tonight. <3

I'm feeling for you with this heat, darling.

I also second the slow cooker thing. We got one for Christmas and I have a thousand easy recipes which sound ultra delicious. (We haven't started using it yet, it's boxed up pending the move). I never commented on your earlier post (sorry, I suck) but I have adopted a menu plan for the week now to ensure we eat different things for mid-week meals and so that I shop accordingly (and don't buy too much food!). I go through some recipe books on the weekend for inspiration and map out the week. A good book for mid-week meal ideas is one my boss gave me for Xmas the other year - Delicious magazine's "5 Nights a Week", which has loads of simple, yum things mostly featuring ingredients which you readily have on hand. Otherwise I scour the web in my lunch break when I am hungry... hehehe.

Meanwhile, I am partway through a letter to you which I expect to have done in a jiffy. Will post it soon.

All the best surviving summer! Go buy yourself a box of frosty fruits and stand under the garden hose :) xx
