It’s June. It’s Hot. Our A/C is not working and the repair guys wont be here for another 3 days. I am not getting anywhere near the oven, stove, microwave or any other form of heat until it’s fixed.
I know I’m not the only one suffering from lack of cool air, albeit temporarily. This made me think of some ideas for no-cook dinners for days when even plugging in the toaster is too much. If you have anything to add, I’d love to hear your no-cook ideas!
- Turkey Sandwich with Potato Chips. Okay – this is a no brainer, but I think we forget this can be dinner, too. There’s no reason this has to be that complicated. Make a sandwich, add some chips, carrot sticks or a salad and voila – yum. The key to making this dinner-like is the toppings – dont just slap some meat and cheese on a piece of bread, get creative. Thin sliced cucumbers, alfalfa sprouts, shredded carrots, jarred or deli red peppers and/or pepperoncini. Make it awesome!
- Wrap it up! Make a salad, add some diced ham or turkey and wrap it up in a tomato basil or spinach wrap. Serve with chips or store-bought potato salad. I have a weakness for the redskin potato salad from City Market (Kroger.) You can also make yummy Cucumbers with Lemony Dressing to go with it.
