It was too hot to cook…

… but I did anyway. After all, there are No Excuses around here. It was close to 100°F when I went out to cook, which around here is cause for the weatherman to interrupt every program on every channel on a regular basis. Considering it never made it into the 70’s over the weekend, this is a stark contrast to what we had been having. Some days it’s hard to believe I went to high school in a town where temperatures under 100°F during the summer were considered a cold front…

But enough complaining about the heat and on to the meal. Tonight we used up some more leftover supplies from the weekend, grilled a bunch of fruit, and tried something new. First up was hotdogs and chicken sausages with roasted garlic and gruyere cheese.

Bubba Ho-Keg was barking with the dogs tonight; I did mention we were using up leftover supplies, didn’t I? I guess I left out the part about creating new leftovers…

The dogs were done, and on went fresh peaches, cut in half with the stones removed (duh). A couple of minutes on each side and they were ready to go.

All that food went into the house for assembly onto the plates, and some fresh pineapple was up next.

While the pineapple was cooking, we were eating. The grilled peaches were put on a bed of greens, topped with some crumbles of gorgonzola (we were out of bleu) cheese, and drizzled with honey. The rest pretty much speaks for itself…

Did we overdo it with the fruit tonight? No one at the table complained, and the inside of the house stayed as cool as it could be considering we don’t have air conditioning. The peach salad concoction was very good even though we used cheese that, according to the little red-headed boy, smelled like his sister’s dirty gym shoes…
