I have a question for you ladies. What do you all fix for dinner on those really hot days in the summer? You know when it is too hot to be turning on the oven.

 they are great options. I am not really sure what to fix. I did pork chops in the crock pot. tonight. It is supposed to be in the 100 until friday, and I'm running out of ideas. lol

crock pot, eat out, simple stove top - hamburgers, grill stuff.  I refuse to turn an oven on LOL.  In the morning when it is cooler I will use a toaster over, but that is it!!!

My kids also love to have a bowl of cereal sometimes as well but when we do the sandwich's we have chips and we all sit on the kitchen floor and act like we are having a picnic they love it and it is a fun family night as well

I try to use my electric grills ect, or BBQ out doors. But to be honest I was thinking the same thing today.

Pasta Salads. I make them early in the morning before the heat of the day so we have a nice cool dinner.

But it doesnt get hot enough here for the option of the oven to be totally out of the question. It is upper 80's/ low 90s and super muggy right now but I still made pizza LOL.  I know that is not hot at all compared to some of the temps ladies here get too!
