So much for an outside event today. Happy “All-time record heat” Labor Day. We topped off at about 113F. It’s supposed to be hotter tomorrow. Ugh. Anyway, we made a little picnic in the family room where it was only about 80F. Between 4PM and 9PM we had to turn the air conditioning to a higher setting and not run any big appliances so that the electrical grid could cope.
Our no-cook picnic consisted of cheesea, salami and crackers, crusty bread and pesto, vegetables and dip, and microwaved pre-made meatballs in marinara sauce. We watched the U.S. Open and some cooking shows and ate our picnic. I am so glad I did not suggest having the whole family over for the holiday!
