Something is swirling around in this ‘lil ole brain

There are so many things I love about the internet. The connections. The community. The food.

Yeah, I said food.

I can’t think of an easier way to get new recipes than to create a Mr. Linky, spread the word and then hop around the web while drooling on my screen printing out amazing recipes.

And I also can’t imagine anything much worse than having to cook dinner in a hot house. I have stood with the freezer open just to cool myself while cooking dinner because I foolishly decided to boil some potatoes/bake biscuits at 400 degrees/fry meat/sweat like a pig.

Because y’all are so creative and domestic-y and all, I’m gonna beg you for some good easy stuff to feed my family open up a couple of posts in a few weeks so that we can all benefit from each others domestic-y-ness.

Don’t worry if you aren’t domestic-y. Your recipes are probably the best ones when it comes to not heating up the kitchen (microwave canned veggies… butter some bread…) Please share your secrets with the rest of us who are slaves to the stove in the heat of the summer.

I will be preparing some buttons to spread the word. And by all means, spread the word! You don’t want your only other choice to be my recipe for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, now do you?

Check back for details in the next few days. And in the meantime, start thinking about what recipes you’ll share.

There will be two separate recipe carnivals on 2 separate days.
1) Foods for days when it’s too hot to cook
2) Foods to take to a picnic.

Start thinkin’. And get ready!

    Good idea. Those are great categories. I hate to turn on the oven when it is 100 degrees outside. I,actually, started a new carnival last week called “Tempt My Tummy Tuesday”. I guess several of us are having similar posting ideas. I can’t wait to participate in yours, as well.
