It has been really hot here in Philly recently. I try not to use air conditioning but when I do, I only use it in one room and we spend all of our time in that one room. I do this because I have window units rather than central air, trying to reduce energy usage and the cost.
Because of this, my kitchen is unbearable. There is a box fan in the window but the part of the house that isn’t cooled is about 90 degrees. I don’t want to cook and try to come up with different salads and cold food. Many salads, however, require potatoes, pasta and other ingredients that need to be cooked. I am a morning person so I usually cook these items first thing in the morning before 7am.
