Do you cook in the hot weather?

we try not to use our oven but we will grill or use the stove top or microwave

I didn't say anything about going out to dinner we cook on our stovetop; use our grill or microwave or have sandwiches; I just try not to use the oven when it is hot.

  • I know what you mean!, but in my case, since I live in Miami, it is always hot here, then I would never cook!

  • I try not to use the oven. A friend of mine uses his toaster oven, but he's just cooking for one. Not three.
    The oven heats up the house & its to hot.

  • Yes mostly, b/c we can't really afford to eat at restaurants as much as we used to. I would rather not, and some days it is just grilled cheese and pasta salad.

  • depends.. I try to grill out in the summer.. or sometimes like day slike today I try to make cold lunches like sandwiches and fruit.. or cold dinners sometimes we do sub nights (where we make our own subs) and have side salads, and fruits/and veggie like platters for a family night dinner when my parents are here. in fact I think that's what we are doing tonight for dinner is a sub night.. I have regular salad and some fruit salad we can have for sides, and stuff to make subs with, so we will prolly do that, it's easy and quick too and I have a lot of things to get organized and ready for tomorrow for the fireworks (it's an all day event in our town).

  • I cook but I dont use the oven all the time

  • I do, but I believe that a woman should cook a home cooked meal at least ALMOST every night. Going to dinner is fun sometimes though. And a steak on the grill tastes so much better than in the oven.

  • We grill a lot more - and we just got a new grill that has a side burner so I can cook something in a pan too. I don't make nearly as many soups or casseroles, but I still cook on the stove almost as much. We eat a lot more cool no-need-to-cook foods too. But I don't try to avoid cooking just because it's hot - we do have central air so cooking doesn't do too much heat-harm ;)
